The Millers Association of Zambia has suspended plans to increase the price of mealie meal by 15 Kwacha.
Association President, Allan Sakala says this is to allow for a meeting with Agriculture Minister, Given Lubinda.
Mr Sakala says the decision was arrived at after a meeting held on Tuesday.
He has since urged all millers to remain calm and has directed that no one should effect the new mealie-meal prices.
Mr Sakala has further explained that the millers have proposed solutions that will bring down the price of mealie meal.
He was speaking in an interview with TV 2 News in Lusaka on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Chief Government Spokesperson, Chishimba Kambwili said government is NOT in favour of increased mealie meal prices.
