SALIMA-(MaraviPost)-Prophet Shepard Bushiri’s cheap maize on Tuesday invaded Salima that thousands of people are turning up to buy the staple food.

According to Bushiri’s spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo, people started gathering as early as 2 am to have a share of the cheap maize.

“The reception is shockingly amazing but we expected it. We knew when we were setting out that we are going to touch so many lives,” he said.

So far, markets have been open in Ntcheu, Mangochi and Salima. On Thursday, Mzimba market will be open.

“Last year, I raised a sence of urgency on the need to deal with the hunger situation in the country. Furthermore, I offered a tangible solution to key stakeholders on the maize market to open up for a working arrangement that could have prevented the current dire maize situation.

“Unfortunately, nobody was paying attention to address as everybody was busy with courts yet our people are starving. But now, because nobody took me seriously, I have decided to take it up alone. I am, from tomorrow, going to sale maize at the cheapest price ever,” said Bushiri.

The man of God added, “I will be selling the 50kg bag at MK5,000. I understand the 50kg bag has gone to as worse as MK20 000 in some areas. Our first markets will be in Ntcheu, and then Salima, Chikwawa, Karonga, Chitipa and Phalombe. We will make sure that we reach every area where there is a huge need.
