The government promises to prosecute those who are smuggling mealie-meal more quickly.
Moreover, THABO KAWANA, the director of information and media, issued a warning that taskforces made up of representatives from different law enforcement agencies will crack down on the smuggling of mealie meal.
Mr. KAWANA has threatened smugglers with harsh punishment.
He made this comment during the ZNBC Sunday Interview, which will run tonight at 00:00 on TV1.
Even though there is a manufactured shortage of mealie meal in some areas of the country, Mr. KAWANA claimed that ZAMBIA is still food secure.
He has also guaranteed that the nation has enough corn on hand.
