Infrastructure Development and Housing Minister Ronald Chitotela has arrived in India to attend a Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) International Conference in New Delhi.

The biggest annual conference which is being held from March 25th to 27th, 2018 has attracted participation of Presidents, Vice Presidents, Ministers and Senior Government Officials mainly from Africa.

Speaking on arrival in India, the Cabinet Minister said he is in India to sell Zambia’s infrastructure development agenda.

This is according to a statement issued to ZANIS in Lusaka today by First Secretary for Press and Tourism at the Zambian Mission in New Delhi, India, Bangwe Naviley.

And Mr. Chitotela stated that Zambia is ripe for credible investment in infrastructure development especially from countries such as India which are highly industrialised.

He added that government has identified infrastructure development as a precursor to the development of the country.

Meanwhile, Zambia’s High Commissioner to India Judith Kapijimpanga stated that the presence of Zambia’s Infrastructure Development and Housing Minister at the Confederation of Indian Industry Conference is evidence that government is committed towards industrialising the country.

Mrs. Kapijimpanga further noted that the world is currently looking to India and Asia in general for credible investments.


  1. Is Chitotela not being investigated by ACC? how come he is even allowed to carry on doing his job? CK is arrested after investigation by ACC and and is being held by police and denied bail it is just that he is hospitalized right now. My question is, are there two rules in this country now? One for the ruling party even when evidence is there against them they go free and one rule where any opposition party is found guilty even before investigations are complete.

    • What buffles me is that people with all the natural raw materials fail to develop anything out of them. We have the materials why depend on others to industrialise ourselves. Chitotela is only there for a show and nothing he will see will translate into coming up with an industry to even manufacture a tooth pick.

  2. HH we dont often agree but onmthis you are 100% correct.
    We have indians chinese building our infrastructure, eg, roads, but what we need js a manufacturing sector.
    Indian and china are both big manufacturing, value adding countries so why arent they investing in zambia,
    Maybe part of the reason is that if they do we will impact on their markets. We have land we grow vegetables, we grow mangoes but do we process any of these. As you know HH in australia cannned tomatoes come from italy, tomato paste from china, canned mangoes vietnam, frozen mango and banana pieces from asia, pickled cucumbers from india. We can grow all those products but no processing done . We invested in roads why

  3. There is Zero leadership in Zambia today, where Corrupt thugs are sent to represent the nation.
    Ati “Zambia is a Christian Nation”
