Member of Parliament for Chikwawa-South Elias Karim has called on government to assist people from the Lower Shire with food relief.
Speaking to Timveni, the Legislator Karim said people in his constituency have been greatly affected by hunger.
Karim said the COVID-19 outbreak has worsened the situation as households can hardly purchase food.
He urged government to move in quickly by supplying maize in ADMARC depots for people to buy maize at an affordable price.
