The Grain Millers Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) has availed 40 000 tonnes of maize grain to the government for production of subsided roller meal to ease shortages that have forced residents to leave their homes during the 21-day national lockdown in search of the staple.

Government early this year re-introduced subsidized maize meal and selected a few milling companies for the roller meal production programme.

The programme, however, is being frustrated by government delays in paying the contracted millers as well as the unavailability of government-sourced maize.
