Copperbelt Minister Bowman Lusambo has challenged companies engaged in mining and quarrying to invest in road infrastructure leading to their operational areas.

Mr. Lusambo made the challenge when he inspected the dilapidated Chiwala road in Ndola, leading to Lafarge, Ndola lime and Dangote cement among other companies.

The minister said such roads need to be in good shape to ease traffic and movement of cargo.

He said the provincial administration in Ndola will rehabilitate the Chiwala road because of the massive investment in the area.

Mr. Lusambo said the new sewer line which is being put up in mine Masala town and the rehabilitation of roads in some wards is testimony of government’s desire to improve people’s living standards.

Mr. Lusambo also inspected the newly built market shelter in his constituency.

  1. Uhhhmm, given the more senior proposal to build a new State House in Lusaka, does he still subscribe to the idea of a mini state house in Ndola? Looks like he has to wait a little bit.

    • Good job Lusambo, kicking soccer ball reduces stress from PF power wrangling. At least all weekend he didn’t mention Kambwili.

    • Lusambo it seems you have a talent in football and managing a province. You want those companies to pay taxes and do govt job too.

  3. Being DR Lusambo you get the infustries to direct their financial resources to roadworks, and that is not investment because there is no return on their investment, instead of creating employment with the money being used to do the governments work. Forgot being a DR gives a high degree of logic znd intelligence so defer to your superior intellect

  4. If they are private roads, leading to these companies and these companies only, they there would even be no need for such as statement. However, if these roads are public roads, with other beneficiaries, which seems to be the case from what he is describing, then you can’t expect private companies to participate or worse still lead on this. That is the role of the government. That is why the companies and the rest of us pay taxes!!

  6. Chilandelande ba chimbwi no plan. I don’t of any country in world which has developed using such unworthy ideas. Does the minister understand the basic role of the government at all? With individuals like him in government it is impossible to discuss any constructive issues objectively. These are the results of being lazy and unguided at school – unfortunately, it is a common phenomena in Zambia – no idea, no quality, chipantepante fye
