Army arrives to collect Tanzania's entire cashew crop
Tanzanian army lorries have arrived in southern Tanzania to pick up the country’s entire cashew nut crop from the farmers. For weeks farmers have been refusing to sell because they say the price is too low.
President John Magufuli stepped in and ordered buyers to pay roughly $1.30 (£1) a kilo by Monday. When they refused he promised to collect the whole crop. The lorries arrived earlier today. Farmers are yet to be paid for their crops but farmers told me they believe they will get the money eventually.
