General News Explore the huge potential in Zambia’s agriculture sector, Saudis Urged

Zambia’s Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Ibrahim Mumba has urged investors in Saudi Arabia to explore the huge potential in Zambia’s agriculture sector.

Ambassador Mumba said Zambia has continued to prioritise the agriculture sector through various strategies aimed at increasing production and productivity.

The Ambassador made the remarks during a virtual meeting with the Ministry of Agriculture in Zambia and the Saudi Agricultural and Livestock Investment Company to explore investment opportunities in the agriculture sector.

The meeting, organized by the Embassy, was attended by SALIC Chief Executive Officer Suleiman Al Rumaih and officials from Ministry of Agriculture led by Peggy Mlewa, Director, Policy and Planning.

Ambassador Mumba highlighted the available resources and key incentives that are vital for the agriculture sector to thrive and reach its maximum potential.

And Mr. Al Rumaih reiterated SALIC’S willingness to invest in Zambia’s agriculture sector and collaborate with companies that deal with wheat, barley, corn, soya beans, rice, sugar, vegetables oils, green fodder, red meat, poultry, milk products and aquaculture.

He said the company is keen to partner with institutions, companies or individuals who embrace the principles of ethical and responsible investment.

SALIC takes into consideration and prioritizes the food security of both the host country and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in all its agriculture investments across the globe.

This is according to a statement issued to the media by Huzaifa Jada, the Deputy Ambassador of Zambia in Riyadh Saudi Arabia.

  1. Scary!! So dangerous.
    Thank God PF minister Mabumba didn’t do it in Saudi Fimofimo, his d!ck would have been cut off.

    • Hope some chiefs won’t be falling over each other offering huge hectares of land and displacing their own subjects from fertile soils , how foreign investors have been given huge tracts of land so and progress reports on the so called projects?

  2. Mumba is a converted Muslim, a Wahhabi Muslim for that matter. How do you bring a dictatorial Wahhabi Muslim cluster yo peaceful Christian country? Those are ruthless money spinners and the moment they land they build mosques everywhere. Calling wolves to live with hens. Anybody is million times better than Wahhabi fundamentalists. If Mumbai wants to score his own goal, go ahead and keep talking rubbish. Zambia ia a Christian nation and only Christians shall be encouraged to invest. Muslims shall go back to Mecca the land of no church in whole of Saudi Arabia, a totitarian, anti Christ regime and country. Wake up slumbering Zambians. No to Wahhabis.

  3. First let’s rid ourselves of this image as a corrupt country of dishonest people who can’t work and are just up for a quick buck. President must Fire CHITALU and CHITOTELA now!!!!

  4. A country of lazy wanking leaders who can not work their own land instead asking someone from the desert to help them instead of selling produce to him.

  5. You have failed to capture and dominate local markets in Zambia , we still shamefully have imported agriculture products from South Africa , even neighbouring countries like DRC where the market is hudge right next door , you have failed to dominate ????

    GRZ does not need investment from Saudi more technical advise and training from countries like isreal, USA and Australia

  6. Very pathetic and predictable comments from upnd diasporans nut cases. This is why your party loses elections ba chimbwi imwe. The article has nothing to do with the former minister and yet here you are behaving as if you don’t touch your little selves. The man has been fired and is being punished. Let him be. Social media bullying is pathetic. If he decides to take his life you will be first ones to act as if you cared. Grow up and debate issues of governance. You ran away from parliament over bill 10 yet very vocal about trivial things.

  7. For one I agree with KZ

    The man did not steal or kill anyone but was guilty of being exposed of his private life on SM, a caution to all.
    A sure lapse is privercy on his part.

  8. “SALIC takes into consideration and prioritizes the food security of both the host country and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in all its agriculture investments across the globe.“-LT

    Right there, priority, ethical and concerned with the principles of right and wrong behavior clash.

  9. This MINDSET of babazonke to foreigners MUST END. Our people are wallowing in poverty and all the privileged officials can think, eat drink and dream is babazonke to foreigners. VOETSEK!

  10. @Kaizer, did you comment on story by your ambassador Ibrahim? You so emotional, why are pulling your pistol on people over Mabumba? Send him those videos you have in your PF WhatSapp group, you will see what they will do to him.
    Your mother -of- nation failed to supply goats, now you are offering land.
    HH is SDA he will close that embassy.

  11. Don’t mind the silly impostor he doesn’t have any affiliation to PF just a silly lonely fake.
    PF leaders want these Arabs to come buy land then farm the land sell all their produce to Middle East and employ Zambians as farm labourers …pay no tax for 5 years. This type of mindset has to go with these PF wankers in 2021.

  12. I hate anything that has to do with offering or giving out huge chunks of land to foreigners. Surely farming is an area where we locals are supposed to be leading. If not directly at least through institutions like ZNS and Prisons Service. How are we going to evict these foreigners when time comes for us to take back our land?

  13. There is difference between investing in an industry and owning the actual mean of production, which in this case is the land. I didn’t go to university but I seem to be more knowledgeable than the foreign educated diasporans here.

I didn’t go to university but I seem to be more knowledgeable than the foreign educated diasporans here. You chaps have no papers there. You just come back home to show off things you don’t have after wiping people behind

  15. “Zambia’s Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Ibrahim Mumba has urged investors in Saudi Arabia to explore the huge potential in Zambia’s agriculture sector.”

    When all you know is colonialism… All these ministers know that foreigners run things in Zambia. There has to be a different curriculum, which is Afrocentric and gives people aspirations and confidence to develop their own country.

    The money is there from copper mining. It are just the mininsters who don’t seem to know how agriculture, industry, infrastructure and more work.

    These ministers don’t seem to know how agriculture, manufacturing and infrastructure work. The Saudis/Emiratis have just evicted the Masai from the Ngorongoro National Crater in Kenya/Tanzania, so they can hunt there.
