18th June 2018:
This is the start of the Maize selling season, so Florence is out trying to buy 60 sacks of maize for the Girl Child Project.
The early sacks cost 4500 each but I think today’s price may be 6,500.
The feeling is that maize may be very scarce and the price will go up and up.
I was at the Ekwendeni market today (about 15km away) and bought 26 sacks, which was all that remained.
Tomorrow I will finish my buying.
