  1. I wonder why, we go around the world looking for investors when we can create our own zambian investors local is laka.What we are supposed to be doing is to be giving grants to both peasants and commercial farmers so that they can increase productivity to sustain the economy. India has less land for farming but their food productvity is higher than that of zambia, India small farmer are the main food industry drivers.

    • It is sad when you keep inviting investors in a sector which is supposed to be a preserve of the local people. what will be left for the local people, if this sector is taken over by the foreigners as well. Please people show PF the door before there is nothing left in this country for the locals.

    • On Agriculture, just bring the Israelis or Afrikaners, they are the best with proven track records. Saudis can do well on exploring oil and natural gas.

    • @Mr Intelligent (The Realist), I concur with you. The Israelis will turn Zambia into Southern Africa’s breadbasket within a short time. Those Saudis are jokers who do not even know how a hoe or plough looks like.

  2. Just know whatever they’ll be growing will be sent straight out of the country. Zambians will be toiling for them but still remain in abject poverty.

  3. That’s why pipo like HH are supposed to be concentrating on some of these investments especially after losing hagain and hagain. Hope after August he can just divert and invest in all other sectors and the PF will give him all the support he will need.
