From a fire tender supplier to a domestic agro dealer

Grandview International Ltd, the suppliers of 42 fire tenders at $1million each, has now become an agro dealer who will participate in the distribution of e-vouncher farming inputs. What is more shocking is that before government can provide answers and justifications for purchasing a fire tender engine from this company they have decided to go ahead and award the same company another contract as agro dealer.

This company which has capacity to engage in business contracts of more than $42 million is now going to compete with local small scale agro dealers in distributing the farming inputs. What a shame? When will small scale enterprises be given a chance to participate in economic growth by way of getting business from the government.

In the eyes of many Zambians Grand View International is not fit to get any government contracts until such a time when government justifies the questionable supply and delivery of fire tenders.

I hope Grand View will not sale a 50KGs bag of maize at $1million to farmers consistent to what they are known for. Farmers must prepare to pay a million dollars for a bag of fertilizer now.
