Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo says the twinning of Chongwe District in Lusaka Province with Mianyang City of Sichuan province in China is likely to foster development which will benefit citizens of both countries.

Mr Lusambo, said that the link created between Mianyang City and Chongwe will strengthen the cordial and a long relationship which has existed between Zambia and China.

He stressed that the collaboration between the two districts will also boost the relationship between the two countries to a higher level.

Speaking when Mianyang City party secretary called on him at his office yesterday, Mr. Lusambo said Chongwe has the potential to grow in areas such as Agriculture, Mining, and aquaculture which can be explored during the twining of the two cities.

He added that President Edgar Lungu wants to see development in the country and he hopes that the benefits from this link will be extended to other districts in the province.

Mr Lusambo has since called on investors to take advantage of the potential investment opportunities in the country.

Meanwhile, Party Secretary for Mianyang City, Liu Chao said the twinning of the two cities will promote communication and cooperation between the two countries.

Mr. Liu said his team was in the country on a reciprocal visit following the vice-president’s visit to Sichuan province where the twinning of the two cities was tabled.

He also hoped that the twinning will be taken to higher levels where Zambia and China can engage in investment exchange.

  1. This what happens when you let your ministers be entertained by foreign powers they start pushing the foreign country’s agendas.

    • This Lusambo chief boot-licking PF cadre is annoying.

      He is behaving like he is now the Chinese Ambassador to Zambia.

      I bet they fed him cats, dogs and snakes in China.

      Every day, it is China this, China that.

      And I bet he would have been very happy to clean up that deposit the China man made in public the other day. Maybe he did clean it up after all.

    • Stop auctioning our country to Chinese.
      Our future generations will judge you harshly for selling them into slavery in exchange for 30 pces of silver.

      Who can forget a photo of Lusambo coming out of a Avic offices with bulged jacket pockets full of bribe money.

  2. There is nothing positive that comes out of twinning towns or cities with other foreign towns or cities. This is only done so that government officials can go to the so called twinned city on government expense just to go and party and enjoy a good holiday. Why can’t you twin chongwe with tunduma it’s because you know you won’t get to enjoy in tunduma.

  5. Most of the Chinese so called investores these thiefs are bringing bring their own Chinese workers to make what ever they are making, sell it , then send the money to China. Some times only a token number of Zambians are drivers of guards , the workers are Chinese, profits back to China …..there is no winning here, unless you are telling us that what ever they are selling is in short supply…
