Chief Mumena of the Kaonde speaking people in Kalumbila district has implored investors to live in peace and harmony with the host communities.

Chief Mumena said investors can only enhance their relationship with
the host communities by ploughing back to the communities through
undertaking corporate social responsibility programmes.

“We know that corporate social responsibility is not something that is put in black and white but it is a spiritual assignment. Those of you that are investing in the land must be able to say the land has accommodated us and what are we going to give in return,” he said.

The traditional leader was speaking during the handover of a water facility to Kimiteto community built by BHL transporters at a cost of K17, 500.

Chief Mumena also thanked BHL for providing the community with clean and safe drinking water.

He implored other companies operating in the district to emulate BHL by undertaking corporate social responsibility programmes to uplift the living standards of the local people.

The traditional leader further urged the community to guard the water facility jealously as it is meant to improve their well-being.

And BHL Administration Officer Comfort Mtonga said the company believes in improving the lives of the people in the community in which it operates through CSR programmes.

“We are positive that this water facility which will be open and free to all members of the community will help in reducing the long distances people take to fetching clean water,” Mr Mtonga said.

Mr Mtonga said the provision of the water facility will enhance access to clean and safe drinking water by the community, and reduce the prevalence of water borne diseases such as cholera and dysentery.

  1. what investors mr man? these chiefs have no role in modern day governance. Let us look at the development of european and advanced states. they went through kindgoms and chiefdoms hundreds of years ago. chiefdoms are the basic form of structure when it comes to state and nation building. We need to do away with these backward units and move on. These chiefs are used by ruling parties like pf to hoodwink illiterate villagers by giving them material goods closer to election time. let us get rid of these chaps
