President Dr Lazarus Chakwera has said Government is planning to restock relief food in the upcoming lean season.
Chakwera told Parliament that he has been informed by the Malawi Vulnerability Assessment Committee (MVAC) Report that more people will be in dire need of food assistance.
He said despite the mistrust people have with MVAC Reports, his administration is building a new dispensation system where such offices and officers working in there should attain and uphold high levels of integrity.
MVAc report indicates that Maize prices are generally higher than last year are projected to increase as households deplete their stocks during the lean season. Higher prices are likely to be in the southern part of the country typically experiencing production deficits (despite registering an increased production compared to last year ) and in the areas affected by floods.
