  2. The campaign for value addition in the field of journalism has retrogressed. DeadNBC has become worse. Freedom of the press is being more controlled by Dora and Amos. The Times is dead, Daily Mail is controlled by government The government owns 99 percent of mass media and makes sure only its Chinese style views are disseminated. PiLATO s songs can’t be played on state radio. Zambia has no public broadcaster. The media are not respected as the pillar of democracy. Where is value addition in this industry?

  10. This guy must look for new speech writers and advisers at the barest minimum. This aesthetic is pathetic to say the least. You cannot be saying things like you have just liberated yourselves from the colonialists. We are 50-plus-effing-years old as a nation. Ifyabupuba lyonse!

  11. I think value additionn worked more when KK was in power, since we had zamefa in lwanshya and KL in mufulira for explosives we had ndola copper refinery in ndola , we had Dunlop in ndola again these and more others disappeared when HH and IMF privatised our companies at a song , who will forgive these two monsters

    • HH was hired by the government of the day to handle the privatisation process and was paid fees to implement what was a government decision in pure consultant and client relationship.

  13. The greatest value addition benefit will be on thingz like copper ,cobalt,mukula,emeralds and other minerals.

  15. Value addition is the most misinterpreted notion in the PF. With PF value addition means buying a fire tender worth $250,000 at $1,000,000

  16. The Campaign for Value Addition in Zambia is bearing fruits -President Lungu

    You have ditched Value added Tax and replaced it with a failed tax system which will produce exactly the opposite result. Pot head.
