Cashew Nuts Debate Hots Up in Tanzania's Parliament

The government's proposal to make changes to the Cashewnut Industry Act has sparked a heated debate in parliament. Currently the law requires that 65% of the crop export levy be remitted to farmers through the Cashew Nut Board of Tanzania, while the government is left with the remaining 35%.With the changes, part of the export levy collected will not be remitted to farmers for developing crops as is the case now, but instead all the monies will be deposited in the treasury's consolidated fund.
