Opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema is calling for an economic indaba despite shunning most initiatives aimed at finding solutions to national challenges,
Hichilema has taken to twitter saying an economic indaba will help devise solution.
The UPND supremo also added, “Months ago, we were adamant that the government must not export maize. We are now faced with a shortage and the price of a 25kg bag of mealie meal is approximately K120.
“It would be prudent for the government to declare the current maize shortage and hunger situation, a National Disaster. This will enable us to get the support we need to alleviate it,” said Hichilema.
