Looting of timber rampant in Shangombo

Looting of timber rampant in Shangombo


By Maiko Zulu 


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.
