Minister of Mining warns against nepotism in maize flour distribution amidst growing food insecurity

Minister of Mining Monica Chang’anamuno has advised authorities responsible for food distribution to avoid nepotism and distribute the aid accordingly.

Chang’anamuno has said this at the launch of maize flour distribution at Malembo Community Day Secondary School in Lilongwe.

“Let me warn authorities who would want to enrich themselves at the expense of intended beneficiaries that they will face the long arm of the law,” warned Chang’anamuno

The Department of Disaster Management Affairs has embarked on a humanitarian response programme to meet the needs of food insecure households.

Government has procured the maize flour from Tanzania and South Africa with support from the World Bank.

A total of 397,778 households will each receive a 50kg bag of maize flour in 12 districts across the country.

The Malawi Vulnerability Assessment Committee (MVAC) 2023 annual report projected over 4.4 million people to be food insecure during the 2023/2024 consumption year.
