    I agree with the artistes. Support our local farmers in africa and africans should practice to eat local and in season!

    What you eat is what you will become eventually…

    Thank you for your comment Michelle. There are 2 points to note here though. 1. The African heads of state promised support for farmers and have not kept their promise. 2. Africans are more of consumers than consumers and this needs to change. We need to produce enough to consume locally and then export.
