-- Statement on Tama Congress

SALUTATION • The Director of Ceremonies • The Secretary for Agriculture Mr Sandram Maweru • The TAMA President • The guest speaker Mr Ronald Ngwira who is also the Managing Director for Pyxus Agriculture Limited • The Chief Executive Officer for Tobacco Commission • Senior government officials here present • All congress delegates and farmers • Members from the media fraternity • Ladies and gentlemen 3 It is with great pleasure to be here again and interact with you TAMA Congress delegates as you meet to discuss tobacco farming business affairs and plan to improve the livelihoods of farmers. I find the theme for this year’s Congress, “Diversification and Value Addition For Climate Change Impact Resilience” to be very relevant considering what farmers have gone through in the current farming season; dry spells, hail storms, tropical cyclones, all in one season. Farmers struggled to raise tobacco nurseries as most areas were dry and delays of rains meant more labour and thus costly to the farmer.
