Masindi District Secretary for Finance Presented A Motion to Petition Parliament on the Current Low Prices of Maize Grains
The Secretary for Finance, Planning, Administration and Investments Mr. M. Kanaginagi Ateenyi on Tuesday 31st July, 2018 presented to the District Council a motion to petition parliament on the current low prices of maize grains through out the country and particularly in Masindi District.
Finally the farmers' outcry on the absurd prices of maize grain have been heard. The Government of Uganda is proposing to buy from farmers maize at Uganda Shillings 500 per Kilogram.
Negotiations for a higher buying price by government are going on. Keep your fingers crossed and watch the space.
