Cabinet Meeting 2020-02: 11th February

The Minister of Finance and Economic Development briefed Cabinet on the action taken to normalize the roller meal supply situation.  He explained that at the First Meeting, Cabinet had noted that the then prevailing price of roller meal provided arbitrage opportunities to some unscrupulous people.  Government had thus moved in to redress the situation using a two-pronged approach.  Firstly, it had been decided that the price be raised to $70 per 10 kg bag of mealie meal from $50.  Secondly, a targetted Coupon Scheme for the Vulnerable is in the offing with the compilation of a database at an advanced stage.  The Scheme will be rolled out in a week’s time.
