A 63 year old farmer was one of those arrested

Police in Kalomo today, Friday fired teargas canisters and arrested over 100 farmers who were protesting and demanding to be paid back their money they deposited into the E-voucher system.

 

The farmers blocked the busy Lusaka, Livingstone road at the Agriculture offices demanding for their money. This caused traffic jam prompting armed police officers to fire teargas canisters and arrested some farmers.

 

The incensed farmers said the E voucher system has failed as money has not been deposited in their E voucher accounts for more than 2 years.

 

The farmers demanded that their accounts be deposited with money not later than today.

 

By press time Police had not confirmed on whether the farmers had been formally charged.

  2. Just pay the farmers; why are you holding on to their money? for 2 years? This is very irresponsible. Whoever is involved must be ashamed.

    • @GBM and I know you are not GBM my Vice President. You are very silly to say that President HH should pay the Kalomo farmers. Is it President HH who brought this stupid E-voucher or you are being a tribalist? Wasnt President HH and Vice President GBM who were saying this e-voucher was a failure even before it started? Stupid idiot.
