A lorry carrying Cotton from Mt Darwin has burnt to Ashes, Nick Mangwana in his tweet had this to say :
The ancients used to call cotton “white gold”. This is because of the value this fibre had. We still value it a lot. Imagine this truck carrying our local white gold from Mt Darwin Cottco just caught fire unexpected, burning the valuable product. What a loss!
Cotton farming has been given less relevance in our country but it is one of the major strongholds of the agriculture sector
