Crime in Kanona and surrounding areas in Serenje District, Central Province, has reduced by 90 percent following the opening of a manganese factory by an Indian company, Southern Africa Ferro Alloys Limited ( SAFAL ).

SAFAL Chairman, Pankaj Jain says he has been informed by the Commissioner of Police for Central Province, that the manganese factory in Chief Mailo’s area has a great impact on the social conduct of the youths.

He said this when Central Province Minister Sydney Mushanga paid a courtesy call on him in GOA, India.

Mr. Jain says the company has employed one hundred and thirty employees while more will be employed upon completion of the expansion works.

Meanwhile, Central Province Minister Sydney Mushanga has assured SAFAL of continued government support.

Mr. Mushanga says he is in Goa, India, to market the Central Province Investment Expo slated for October 16 to 20, 2018.

He has since urged Mr. Jain to use his influence in GOA to encourage other investors to consider Zambia and Central Province in particular as the best destination for investment.

And Zambia’s High Commissioner to India Judith Kapijimpanga says she is happy to learn that the manganese factory is being run by the local people of Kanona who have acquired the skills.

Mrs. KAPIJIMPANGA says the Mission in India is looking for investors such as SAFAL who are ready to add value to the raw materials within the country.

This is contained in a statement released by First Secretary Press and Tourism at the Zambian Mission in New Delhi, , India, Bangwe Naviley.

  1. Surely, surely can’t we start our own Zambian mine? What’s happened to ALL those mining engineers from UNZA mwebantu? There it is now, Mushanga has now gone to collect his brown envelope and soon, he shall become a “stinking” rich minister

    • UNZA and CBU graduates engineers can’t even make a tooth pick and the girls are even worse, they are whores selling their bodies for talk time. They bounce men left and right. 95% of UNZA and CBU students are infected with HIV so how do you expect these students to be productive in society when they will die after graduating or be on ARVs? They won’t live long after graduating, they will die of AIDS and that is very sad.

    • Graduate engineers aren’t supposed to make toothpicks. Its craftsmen who are supposed to do those things. The university graduate is meant to make plans and blueprints

  2. Nkope Shinyenga we have governments that don’t know how to empower their citizens. The mining engineering graduates have skills but can’t obtain capital. Here is where government should have facilitated financing of mining ventures through policy but our presidents just keep on preaching from anthills and rooftops “go back to the land!” Go back to the land should be financed

  3. Can you make manganese in a factory? LT what has happened to your O-level science knowledge? Manganese is an element. You do not make it in a factory. Did you mean mine? I shouldn’t be too harsh on you, it’s possible you were taught by some of the fake teachers who have been dismissed from service.

  4. All the Zambian graduates educated by the taxpayer’s money and those educated by ZCCM have disappeared like the way fish has been disappearing in the Zambian lakes.
