Malawi bans tobacco companies from growing tobacco

The Malawi president Peter Mutharika has announced that tobacco buyers will be banned from growing tobacco themselves in a move intended to protect tobacco farmers’ income. Mutharika said that tobacco buyers had started to grow their own crops and had stopped buying from Malawi farmers, who have subsequently struggled with low demand for their tobacco crops.
