People’s party president Mike Mulongoti has appealed to government to reverse the decision to scrap off the maize subsidy for the sake of the majority poor Zambians.
Mr. Mulongoti says there is need for government to take into consideration the majority Zambians who are unemployed and cannot afford a descent meal in a day.
Mr. Mulongoti explains that it will only be fair to the Zambian people if government rescinds its decisions on the subsidies which will affect the poor more.
He has urged the government to find the right way of handling the current fuel and maize subsidies carefully for the benefit of all Zambians.
Mr Mulongoti adds that government should also think seriously and protect the interests of the majority Zambians who pay tax.
