Zambia threatens to revoke mining licenses given Mining companies that have remained idle

Mines Minister Richard Musukwa has warned that idle licenses that were issued to either small or large-scale miners will be revoked.
And Musukwa says Government will implement a framework to facilitate market linkages to assist small-scale miners and prevent them from being continuously exploited.
Speaking during a four-day workshop on Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining (ASM) in Zambia, Musukwa warned that licenses that Government had issued to both small and large-scale miners risked being revoked if they remained idle.
“Idle licenses, licenses that are being held for speculation, will be revoked so as to promote serious and credible Zambians, non-Zambians, investors who would like to invest in our country,” Musukwa warned when he officially opened the workshop at Southern Sun Hotel in Lusaka on March 19.
He explained that the issuance of mining licenses without adhering to the stipulated obligations was disadvantaging Zambia.
“When we give licenses, we also give obligations, and these…

Zambian Company Profile - Java Foods

Java Foods is a proudly Zambian company founded in 2012 with the objective of providing convenient, affordable and nutritious foods made from local ingredients.

We began operations as a trading and distribution company selling our own brand of noodles – eeZee Instant Noodles, before going into manufacturing. Java Foods now manufactures cereal – eeZee Supa Cereal (a high energy protein cereal) and Num Num Snacks (corn puffs) from our factory in Lusaka.

We believe that buying local Zambian products first is very important because it builds our economy. By choosing to buy Zambian first, we make Zambia a priority simply by choosing to support one another. 
Why is this important? Zambia is a young nation and we believe that building a nation requires a diverse and sustainable local economy. Everybody has a different role to play in making Zambia a great place to live for all her people.
By buying Zambian first, we do not just help build up our economy and create employment for our people –…

36 Zambians expected to be at Internationale Tourismus-Börse Berlin (ITB)


THIRTY-SIX Zambian exhibitors are expected to participate at the Internationale Tourismus-Börse Berlin (ITB) in the German capital Berlin which starts tomorrow. The Zambian Government has coined a theme ‘Take Zambia With You’ to attract visitors to Zambia during the event.
Zambia’s Ambassador to Germany Anthony Mukwita said the Zambian government, with the participation of the private sector, would be exhibiting some of the best sites, sounds and cultural heritage the country has to offer and will be asking the visitors to ‘Take Zambia with them’.
This is according to a statement issued yesterday by the embassy’s First Secretary for Press Kellys Kaunda.
“Every stand in the exhibition hall, every performance and every presentation in the convention hall along with the food to be served by The Manor, a Lusaka-based Zambian restaurant shall be designed to leave a lasting impression on the visitors to ITB who in turn shall take Zambia with them,” Mr Mukwita said.

Government to compel mining firms to set up processing plants in Zambia

Government says it will soon pass a policy to compel mining firms to engage importers of their copper to set up processing plants for finished products in Zambia. Minister of Mines Christopher Yaluma says it is unacceptable that Zambia continues importing finished products of copper mined in Zambia instead of manufacturing them from within the country. Addressing a business delegation from South Africa’s Gauteng Province at his office today, Mr. Yaluma said adding value to copper will create a lot of jobs and contribute to revenue earnings. He said exporting copper blisters denies Zambia revenue because it contains a lot of minerals which are disintegrated in the foreign processing plants. The Minister adds that most small-scale miners are exploited by large firms who buy them off at low prices because they lack machinery for mining. He is however delighted that the South African delegation which includes SA Capital Equipment is looking at Zambia as a potential market. Mr. Yaluma not…

Zambian made shoes?

As shoe brands go, it’s not exactly up there with the major high-street labels; but CLCs – pronounced “Clicks” – are slowly gaining a reputation on the Copperbelt as good-quality, hand-made shoes that won’t break the bank.
CLC is an acronym for Chingola Leather Cluster, a small cottage industry that produces handmade leather shoes, thanks to a K120 000 grant by Konkola Copper Mines (KCM). The money has funded training, the purchase of leather, and the installation of shoe-making equipment and machinery. “We noticed many people in the townships were repairing shoes, but not making them,” says local entrepreneur Preston Viswamo, who came up with the idea for the business. “It was just the skills that were lacking, so we set about teaching them the skills.” CLC is part of the larger CLIC (Copperbelt Leather Industry Cluster), which was founded by Viswamo. As we take a tour of the Chingola workshop, one can’t h…
