Magufuli Steps In, Deploys Army Amid Tanzania's Cashew Nut Saga

While cooperatives have commended President John Magufuli's intervention, they have warned that this should not happen at the expense of other stakeholders in the business of cashew nuts. Magufuli announced that the government through the Tanzania Agriculture Development Bank should facilitate the purchase of cashew nuts with the army given the responsibility of buying and also processing the produce in Lindi and Mtwara regions.

President John Magufuli said that TABD should purchase cashew nuts from farmers.
