Economy Government has secured a market for agricultural equipment to be manufactured in...

Technology and Science Minister, Felix Mutati has said that the government has secured a market for agricultural equipment to be manufactured by Saint Mawaggali Trades Training Institute in Choma.

Mr. Mutati says his ministry is in the process of engaging the private sector which will lead the signing of a memorandum of understanding that will see the institute supply agricultural equipment on a commercial scale.

Speaking in Choma when he and Southern Province Permanent Secretary, Namani Monze, toured the institute, Mr. Mutati expressed satisfaction with the quality of skills imparted in the students and the modern machinery at St. Mawaggali.

Meanwhile, Mr. Mutati has commended the institute for enrolling 170 students using the Constituency Development Fund -CDF- bursaries component.

He said there have been complaints on procedures and uptake of CDF but noted that St. Mawaggali is a practical example of how institutions can make use of funds.
AND Saint Mawaggali Principal, Tom Kampamba, said the institute has the capacity to produce agricultural equipment and desks using its recently procured modern equipment.

He added that the increased enrollment will result in expanded revenue generation to the institution.

  1. Its a good thing for training purposes but using slave labour in the form students to manufacture products for commerical purposes is another thing..why cant Mawaggali Trades Training Institute just register a subsidiary company?

    • But how do you know they have already done that?
      The CDF procedures clearly state that and the problem is that most people don’t know how to Register.

  6. This is one of best Catholic Colleges in Zambia. It was simply called MAWAGALI. I went to this college in the Mid 80’s and studied Electrical Craft. I now hold, a Bachelor Degree in Electrical Power Systems & 2 Masters Degrees in Railway Systems Engineering & Transport Economics. Well done for recognising the potential of the institute. That’s what governments do in the developed world. They give money to institutions in the form of grants for research to develop products. Well done Mawaggali!

  7. Stop petty quarrels on LT. There’s so many serious issues to tackle. Like why should the colonial presidential defamation law continue in free africa

  8. Define commercial scale. One piece of equipment a week? It’s either hoes or rakes that can be produced that fast or a manufacturing plant is needed.
