Mukuba Hotel management urged to modernize facility


Copperbelt Permanent Secretary Bright Nundwe has called on Mukuba hotel management in Ndola to mobilize resources and give the hotel a facelift.

Mr Nundwe said despite the financial challenges the hotel is facing, management should go an extra mile and see how best they can source for finances and modernize the facility to meet the modern hospitality standards.

He observed that the province has in the recent years seen a number of hotels being constructed making the hospitality business competitive.

The permanent secretary said this when he inspected the hotel to see its condition ahead of the provincial investment expo slated for June 2019

Mr.Nundwe added that the provincial administration is ready to support the hotel in order for it to reach the apex of operations and development.

He added that the province will soon have a five start hotel which will call for stiff competition.

And Mukuba Hotel Managing Director Emmanuel Chileshe said the facility is due for massive face lift next year.

Mr.Chileshe said management has plans to construct a big conference center and modify all the rooms to meet the hospitality standards.

He also assured the PS that next year the facility will be ready to host both local and international gusts ahead of the Copperbelt investment expo.


  1. Who owns the hotel? You were quick to pump funds in Parliament Motel which is used as a brothel by our MPs instead of this one

  2. Why couldn’t they hold the Copperbelt Expo in Kitwe which is more centrally located and has the most modern hotel on the Copperbert – Garden Court at Freedom Park?

  3. List it on LUSE and raise money for facelift – if it is not yet listed. If it is, shareholders need to pump in money to upgrade this hotel, this is long overdue. Also, Ndola, please sale the “Old” Savoy Hotel.

  4. That thing looks like a disused old Soviet nuclear plant,knock it done and build a modern structure. Renovation’s will not work,its ancient.
