He said by doing so, his government will encourage Mulungushi Textile and others like it to manufacture a lot of fabric and in turn create employment opportunities for the Zambian people.

Mr Hichilema said colleges and trade schools will be encouraged to train more people in the tailoring industry and support more youths youth and women to set up tailoring workshops and buy the fabric from Mulungushi Textile and others like it.

He has emphasised that uniforms and other linen, for example, security wings, hospital and clinics bedding curtains and many such should be bought by government institutions from these workshops so they can expand more.

  1. Good intentions but to be honest Mulungushi is obsolete and would never be able to compete against Chinese textiles.

  2. Bally is right we can do it ourselves. FDI is possible but much emphasis on local investors is more important than FDIs.

    Once we produce more goods and services we can export to other countries and earn forex to stabilize our kwacha.

    PF must go!

  3. Hh you will never form government. Face reality and move on with your life.you will regret having wasted your time in politics when you are 80 and still trying to win an election. You will die sad. Just look at by election results in your stronghold. That is a message to your party from your supporters. They have lost confidence in tribal politics

  4. Even with tax incentives the Chinese joint venture failed to run that factory, so it isn’t viable to run unless you make radical changes and the best is to turn it into an edible oils refinery. Who doesn’t use cooking oil? Zambia is still a net importer of saladi. Just count how many trucks pass through Nakonde and Chanida

  9. As to whether Bally will win next year’s elections, any average Zambian endowed with a little bit of common sense will have reservations because history has shown us that Zambians don’t elect leaders according to their ability serve but even a senseless campaign song like Dununa Reverse can win you an election. So this Bally thing can just gift a Freemason an election victory. Zambians can even choose scum over cream; are those in govt better than Hichilema? NO!

  10. There just isnt’ any hope for the incoming President. Mulungish Textiles is as useful as th eperson claiming to be Kaizer Zulu on this platform.
    There cannot be or justifiable textile company in Zambia as long as Chinese imports are still allowed.
