Quick buck!

While an estimated 6.7 million are facing food shortage and the country’s imports will only meet 73 percent of the nation’s requirements, whispers say some indigenous millers are selling their maize allocations to beef farmers to feed their cattle, instead of milling it for the people who they get the allocation for.

The whispers say it is apparently more profitable for the millers to sell maize to farmers than to sell it as maize meal as they can make a quick buck without the costs associated with milling.
