Southern Cross Motors Limited has donated a 60 seater luxury bus to the National Assembly ahead of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Assembly and related meetings which kicks off in Lusaka this Friday.

And speaking in an interview with ZANIS, Clerk of the National Assembly Doris Mwiinga praised Southern Cross Motors for the gesture saying it will go a long way in meeting the transport requirements for the IPU delegates.

Ms Mwiinga said the bus will among other major duties help in ferrying foreign delegates to the country’s tourist attractions outside Lusaka during the IPU Assembly and related meetings.

She however called on other cooperating partners to come on board and support the National Assembly to successfully host this year’s IPU general assembly.

And Southern Cross Motors Sales and Marketing Manager Mike Ng’uni said his company is pleased to be part of activities aimed at promoting democracy in the country such as the IPU Assembly.

Mr. Ng’uni who however did not disclose the cost of the bus said the IPU Assembly is of great value to Zambia as it will among other benefits help boost trade and tourism prospects of the country to the outside world.

The IPU Assembly and related meetings which will attract over 1,400 delegates from 166 countries will take place from March 18-23, 2016 in Lusaka under the theme “Rejuvenating democracy: Giving voice to the Youth”.

  1. Are we down to counting the cost for attracting Tourism investment? When will owner hungry opposition behave with responsibility. If things are so desperate then we should declare emergency rule and cancel the cost of expensive elections and spend on feeding the nations until rains come.

  2. “Rejuvenating democracy: Giving voice to the Youth”. this is ironic. just last week the youth were tear gassed because of PF cadres who don’t see the need to co exist in a democratic state. Cholera is on the rise in Lusaka too. this will scare away tourists.
