Malawi to import 50,000 tonnes of maize after drought

Malawi will import 50,000 tonnes of maize from Tanzania to avert hunger due to drought, an official said on Monday.

The principal secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture, Erica Maganga, said the government had authorised state-owned grain marketing company, ADMARC, to import maize to meet the shortfall.

“With the 30,000 tonnes coming in from Zambia, we expect to add on another 50,000 tonnes from Tanzania that we have authorised (state-owned grain marketing company) ADMARC to import,” Mr. Maganga said.
