This was announced last Tuesday, in Luena City, by the director of the Sacassange Farm, Gildo da Silva Coji.

Speaking to ANGOP, in reaction to accusations from farm workers who have been complaining of staying seven months without receiving their salaries, Gildo Coji explained that the decrease in production was caused by the lack of foreign exchanges, which is a hindrance in the importation of raw-material.

The farm has been selling vegetables and eggs in Moxico market and to the neighbouring provinces of Lunda Sul and Lunda Norte.     

Gildo Coji said also that the farm board decided not to stop activities completely and found a way to engage in small production until the situation improves and eventually the workers’ salary problem is sorted out.    

He then disclosed that the farm is currently in a shy activity through money borrowings.   

Since its creation in the year 2012 up to 2017, the Sacassange Farm produced eighteen million eggs.
