The long awaited project to build the Namafulo border Post to ease movement for Zambians crossing to Zimbabwe on Lake Kariba in Sinazongwe district in Southern Province has been launched.

Speaking at the launch of the project Sinazongwe District Commissioner (DC ) Oliver Pelete said the border post would ease the problem of people who have been finding it difficult to obtain permits to cross to Zimbabwe on Lake Kariba.

Mr Pelete noted that the border post would open up business opportunities for people wanting to conduct cross border trade.
He said it would also provide employment to local residents at the time of construction and urged the Namafulo people to cooperate with the government workers who will be implementing the project.

He said government has released an initial amount of K800, 000,000 for the project to kick off.

The DC informed the audience that government has taken up the issue of land wrangles that erupted in Namafulo Village where Eddie Jordan wanted to obtain land without the consent of Senior Chief Mweemba, Headman Namafulo and the Sinazongwe district Council.

The land that the white investor wanted to obtain included the area that government had reserved for construction of Namafulo border post.
Immigration Officer Willard Nakutonga said people in Sinazongwe had suffered for long time and government has seen it prudent to build a boarder post for them.

He said the boarder post would include immigration offices, Customs offices, Police, a clinic, a School, Market place, and a court.
Headman Namafulo thanked government for fulfilling its promise of building a border post in the area adding that its completion would bring development to the people in Sinazongwe district.
The building of the Namafulo border post was one of the projects that Sinazongwe district had planned to implement its five year development plan by 2010.
Across Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe there is Binga Township that is already developed and has a border post and most of its infrastructure is visible from the Zambian side.

  4. Cross-border trade is something that should be encouraged as it will provide alternative markets for traders and will add to employment. The relationship between Zimbabwe and Zambia must not be ignored as it is a growing relationship of trade that will benefit both countries.

    This project must be supported by all Zambians.

  5. Editor, please use correct language. A word processor can help spot all these problems easily. The word is BORDER as in a demarcation and not BOARDER as in a person who stays in a boarding house. Please, these mistakes are getting embarrassing.
