Vice President Inonge Wina has called for enhanced collaboration between Government, traditional leaders and the private sector if rural poverty is to be overcome.

Mrs. Wina says Government is aware of the challenges hindering private sector investment in rural communities such as inadequate infrastructure, poor road network and lack of efficient communication facilities.

She however says the PF Government has over the years made efforts to open the rural areas by constructing better roads to make areas such as Southern province more attractive to investment.


Mrs Wina says Government is relying on other players within the economy, including the private sector, to do their part in accelerating development programmes countrywide

She said this shortly after she launched the ZENITH Food Limited Feed Mill in Monze.

Mrs. Wina commended ZENITH and Musika for joining hands to establish a factory which targets 1-thousand 3-hundred small-holder farmers, among them 5-hundred and 20 women in Monze, Mazabuka and Namwala districts.

And ZENITH Foods Limited Chief Executive Officer Gilbert Vlahakis said the establishment of the Feed Mill in the rural areas is a way of enhancing industrialisation and improving accessibility of livestock feed which will be sold at a lower price to the surrounding areas.

Musika Board Chairperson Chance Kabaghe thanked Government for providing policies that have created a conducive environment for local investment, saying such initiatives have potential to make Zambia a regional food basket.

Mr. Kabaghe said the Feed Mill is a home-grown solution to address the challenges that most farmers face.

And in vote of thanks, Chief Choona thanked Government for the support it continues to render to the people in the chiefdom.
