Looting of timber rampant in Shangombo

Looting of timber rampant in Shangombo

SIOMA – SHANG’OMBO ROAD

Massive logging going on here with truckloads of timber heading out every day. Unconfirmed reports suggest that a Chinese owned company is working in the area. What is worrying is that these extractive industries do not seem to benefit the locals in areas such as this. Zambia is a rich country full of poor citizens because we have allowed a few greedy people to take control and mortgage country to foreign multinationals who have no interest in the welfare of the people. Africa has been sold to a point where the next generation of our people will have nothing but the color of their skin as proof that they are Africans.
