The ruling Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) in Luanshya district on the Copperbelt province is happy with President Rupiah Banda’s commitment to revamping the economy.
Luanshya MMD district secretary Shine Mukosha told ZANIS that President Banda has shown quality leadership in the area of economic development despite the global economic recession.
Mr. Mukosha said people of Luanshya are excited with President Banda’s government especially that it had managed to secure a viable investor to reopen the Luanshya mine in the face of the global meltdown.
He also commended the Chinese investors for choosing to invest in Luanshya, adding that the workers have committed themselves to having a good working relationship with the investor.
He thanked the Chinese investors for paying its workers Christmas bonuses even before the mine begins to realize any profits from the huge investments put in the mines.
Last week, President Banda was in Luanshya to commission the production resumption of copper at the mine in which over US$38million has been invested.
