Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo greets Chieftainess Nkomeshya Mukamambo II when he paid a courtesy call on her in Chongwe District

Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has called for partnerships between Chinese Investors and local people in the province to enable Zambians to benefit from their natural resources.

The Minister said partnerships between investors and local people will be key in ensuring that Zambians not only participate in economic development but also benefit from investments and their natural resources.

Mr. Lusambo was speaking when a delegation of Chinese Investors paid a courtesy call on him at his Office today. The investors have expressed interest to set up businesses in Chongwe districts among them a car assembling plant.

“China has developed to where it is today because it has policies which are supported by its people and the business community. We want also to develop our country and in our quest to do so, we need investors that will support out policies”. Mr. Lusambo has said.

He emphasised that partnerships between investors and the local people will be key in achieving sustainable development in the country.

And Mr. Lusambo has urged the Investors to respect the traditional Leadership in Chongwe District if they are to work in harmony as they actualise their investments in the area.

“Zambians are very friendly people but do not provoke them because you will not like them, they will support and protect your investments if your respect them” he added.

    • I am Zambian, Lake Bangweulu my natural resource? Is copper my natural resource?
      What natural resource is in Lusaka is Lusambo claiming is his?

    • Prof Lumumba is not a principled person. Ask any Kenyan and they will confirm this. He blows the trumpet of who pays him loudly. He is a good orator and uses his oratory skills to earn a living, that is also. He lost credibility when he plagiarised someone’s work and he represented the people he was accusing of been corrupt in court.

    • Is Lusambo working for Zambia or Chambia?

      I guess thick brown envelopes have a way of converting people.

      Just ask his boss.

  2. Mr Lusambo forgets: China developed so quickly because its LEADERS knew EXACTLY what they wanted for THEIR people. Do African leaders even have a CLUE what their people really want, let alone need? In fact, it is only after you have attended to the needs you promise EVERY campaign season that you will begin to fiercely cater to their WANTS. China did, and continues to do so. When will you start??

  3. Are a minister of trade commerce and industry.

    The are characters that have downgraded PF

    Chasing police. Chasing civil servants. Following Chinese.

    He doesn’t even have a job description. They should just give a post at pf secretariat maybe.

    • It is way too obvious that these guys are benefiting immorally from the Chinese.

      We have so many other foreigners in Zambia, yet only the Chinese are being protected like eggs.

    • HH has a foreign banks H-account in Panama. He store money from Zambia. If he NEVER store there was no need to take it to PANAMA. He could have put it in ZANACO. When he dies, the money shall die as well! Ask Mobutu.

  4. The best the Zambia govt can do is to make sure that foreigners partner with local pipo.The kwacha is losing value bcoz 90% of shops are owned by indians or chinese.Meaning the chaps just buy dollas everyday and send dollas to their own countries.Its better Zambians start exporting power where it can make a lot of money.As long as investors are allowed to trade in Zambia Zambian economy would shrink.Let the governmnet come up with laws so that 80% of investors money is kept in the country.The shopping malls being built by chinese pipo would make the kwacha lose more value.All chinese goods will be sold in Zambia and the kwacha will be converted into dollas.At the moment we have a lot of chinese and indians keeping dollas.Don’t allow such investment if they can’t bank with local banks.

    Zambia and Africa don’t get… China is not your friend, they are in it for themselves, not the discredited ‘win-win’ [email protected] that they use everywhere. Read for yourselves below… the rest of the world is pushing back on Chinese hegemony, while these corrupt leaders are selling the country for few silvers. These guys don’t have patience and they blatantly in a hurry to be the next superpower and they are doing it without any shame. This is 100x the colonization that you experienced from the Europeans.

  7. Mr Minister sit with the president. He should be making input into government policy on foreign investment. Tell people what they should do without executive direction is not the way to go. I get a feeling the president doesnt take advice or we have a dull cabinet.

  8. I am beginning to really like Bowman Lusambo, his rise from call boy to Lusaka Province Minister is admirable and he should be used a motivation symbol for all. He is like a Michael Sata, little education but very effective. If he wasn’t an MMD traitor ECL should have considered him as a possible successor because only Bowman would shield ECL from the many court cases ECL will have to deal with after leaving office. The Kampyongos will betray ECL.

    • Successor of what and whom? The president? Keep dreaming, Sata was a one off. In fact Zambia would have been better had Lungu taken over after RB. Sata was a muzungu wanga anikonde type. Borrowed the Euro bonds with no explanation on how the country was going to pay back.

    • Nzelu – Sata handpicked Lazy Lungu not because of his leadership skills but lack of them…he knew that if for some reason he recovered from his illness Lazy Lungu would not be a problem moving aside as everything would stagnate.

  9. Mr Minister shud sit with the president. He should be making input into government policy on foreign investmentors. Telling people what they should do without executive direction is not the way to go. I get a feeling the president doesnt take advice or we have a dull cabinet. I haven’t seen any wow policy dealing with investors.

  10. Chinese spokesperson, Bowman Lusambo has said Zambians should partner with the Chinese.
    I’m wondering if he’s still our dear leaders’ favourite boot licker, sounds like he has a new master. He’ll catch a disease if he continues licking different boots and may not live that long to enjoy the proceeds of boot licking.

  17. Mr Minister Lusambo.. if you are a serious minister whose after developing the nation, then you should be implementing measures that will spur our natives out of tax squeeze.. As long as you do not feel the pain of locals, you will forever sing a Chinese song because you can point to the flag that adds to your income. Our locals cannot afford basic needs.. the best you can do is promote Chinese nationals.. if you love the nation as you claim, start from implementing measures that were introduced by KK.. one zambia one nation..
