Share

The Economics Association of Zambia and the Luapula Provincial Administration are considering a partnership to launch the Citizens Entrepreneur Development Programme.

The Citizen Entrepreneur Development Programme is aimed at increasing people’s income at the household level in Luapula Province.

According to EAZ President Lubinda Haabazoka, the programme is also aimed at helping the Province to lift people out of poverty through entrepreneurship.

Dr Haabazoka explains that his Association has since gone into partnerships with the African Green Resources -AGR-, the Programme Against Malnutrition -PAM- and other investors to successfully run the Citizens Entrepreneur Development Programme.

He says the EAZ has decided to start with Luapula owing to the region’s rich endowment in agriculture, forestry, minerals, livestock, fisheries among many other natural resources.

Dr Haabazoka says EAZ will closely work with cooperatives and chiefdoms to train entrepreneurs to create wealth and thousands of jobs at chiefdom level in Luapula Province.

And Luapula Province Minister Nickson Chilangwa assured EAZ and its partners of government’s support adding that any initiative aimed at combating poverty in the Province will receive full attention.

ZANIS reports that Mr Chilangwa who has held various engagement meetings with EAZ in Lusaka says he is impressed with the proposals that the EAZ has so far made.

    Hey that Chitimukulu article has comments disabled (how cowardly).

    But I must be confused, is corrupt Chitimukulu now entering partisan politics and publicly declaring his support for his fellow corrupt Lungu, and declaring an ethnic political war against HH and UPND? He must have been given so much money and land in Lusaka. How sad! Every progressive Bemba should condemn this chief because he is bringing ridicule and disrepute to the throne.
    There’s an unwritten cardinal rule why chiefs are advised to stay out of partisan politics and hold their bias and dislikes to themselves. The simple logical reasoning being, their subjects are members of various political parties and affiliations. The 2nd being they are supposed to work with government of the day which changes hands between…

    The 2nd being they are supposed to work with government of the day which changes hands between different parties from time to time.
    This is indeed a sad day for Zambia… the corrupt and tribalist Chitimukulu has sold his soul and the entire Bemba chiefdom to Lungu. He used to pretend and hide his hatred for HH and UPND and now I see why Sata couldn’t trust him. I have lost the last and little remnant of respect I had for him.

    Really Unbelievable and shameful!
