Lusaka Province Minister Japhen Mwakalombe has invited Chinese companies to set up recycling plants in the province.

Mr Mwakalombe explained that the development will help in the disposal of waste management in the province.

He complained that for a long time councils have been facing challenges in keeping the city clean due to uncollected garbage.

The Province minister said this today when Chinese ambassador to Zambia paid a courtesy call on him.

Mr Mwakalombe said waste management has been a thorny issue which needs urgent attention.

He disclosed that President Lungu wants the issue of waste management to be addressed so that the city is clean.

Mr Mwakalombe said recycling plants can generate electricity from the waste collected in the city.

And Chinese ambassador Yang Youming assured the provincial minister that China will continue to organize exchange visits between the two countries.

Mr Youming explained that exchange visits are important as they promote understanding and enhance cooperation.

He said China uses exchange visits to identify opportunities of investment and trade between the two countries.

Mr Youming said He is impressed with the level of exchange visits that have taken place this year between Zambia and China.

  1. They may be cheap, but please avoid these Chinese companies because what comes with them is “cheap” salaries for their employees because of the cheap labour attitude that is embedded in them.

    • Please Mwakalombe even Zambians can setup these plants. In your head you imagine that recycling is a very complicated process. STOP buying those Range Rovers from your corruption and at least use the stolen Money to invest in sensible projects such as Recycling. You have no Heart PF and your constituent minions. You are too lazy to develop innovative policies to motivate your own citizens to invest in recycling instead you incentivize the mines with low electricity tariffs and Tax rebates and holidays. At that conference you should have been mentioning progressive policy moves that you have introduced in the recycling industry. FOOLS!

  3. No,No,No!Why can’t we set up these recycling plants ourselves? Why do we always have to depend on other countries for development? Zambia will only be developed by ourselves. The Chinese developed their own country. What kind of leaders do we have in this country kanshi?

    So you mean the council is unable to setup such plants?? Well… for him to sink this low explains why Lusaka is so dirty.

    • These are mere empty tins …municipal council should be in such projects as recycling especially of plastic bottles and paper helps keep the environment clean ….added bonus as well is its a good revenue stream driver for the local authority to investment in more equipment.

  9. When people say Government has failed… This is the genesis. If you appoint such characters, the script is tainted with failure.
