Written by on May 12, 2021

People’s Alliance for Change President, Andyford Banda says the Patriotic Front government has failed to diversify the country’s economy from its dependence on mining to the agriculture.

Mr. Banda says the failure to diversify the economy to agriculture is largely because Zambians are not able to access land. Speaking at the launch of his party’s 2021-2026 manifesto on Monday, Mr. Banda said it is unacceptable that foreigners are able to access land without any challenge yet Zambians failing to do so.

The People’s Alliance for Change President said once elected to office, his party will formulate policies that favour Zambians in the acquisition of land. He further stated that doing so will encourage Zambians to venture into agriculture and increase the country’s agricultural produce export base.
