  1. it’s because of this caliber of reporters that these fools get away with a lot. no one asks questions.
    what they report is the same like a layman can write by mere observation. no in-depth analysis. just reporting what meets the eye.
    when I was in Zambia last month, znbc prime news, reporter was on tv saying the government is opening factories in central province, I forget whether mukushi or serenje. but just that, he was reporting, and it was on the headlines…. government to open factories in central province. no single detail or what will be manufactured or how many or who…all the pertinent information that is supposed to accompany such a piece. mediocrity at it’s worst

  3. Excellent! This is makes for positive reading. Please don’t be distracted by those enraged with a positive thing Mr President. Zambia Sugar has defined and continues to contribute to the livelihood of the people of Southern province for decades. A venture like this can help bring and sustain the economy of the good people of Luapula province for many decades to come.

  5. These are projects worth commissioning by the Head of State – not simple little things like filling stations,lodges,” mini hospitals”.. But Ba Chilangwa should stop comparing the jobs that were created by Mansa Batteries with what is happening now.We have different dynamics at play and given where things are in this era of ICT and globalisation, I would say we have very much fallen behind!!

  8. Typical PF Kaponya , street vendor mentality. You have ten traders standing next to each and all are selling tomatoes.
    The northern region already has Kalungwishi Estates Limited which produces 2,600 tonnes of sugar under the Kasama sugar brand.Instead of allowing it to expand and provide competition to Zambia sugar, the entire president wants to commission another Kantemba business.
    After failing to revive Mansa Batteries and Kawambwa tea,now you want to cheat people with Mansa sugar.Spare us the jokes please.

  11. I think this is a good development. We want as many of these value addition industries as possible. More jobs, more forex as the market for sugar is ever available. Another massive sugar plantation is to be commissioned soon in Western province.

    • @ just asking. You can’t have only one company manufacturing a comodity as they would enable them to dictate prices. Remember lafarge before and after Dangote came in.
