Infrastructure, Housing and Urban Development Minister Eng. Charles Milupi says the new dawn government is actualizing the slogan of: “Zambia the land-linked country”.
Eng. Milupi says the recent signing of a memorandum of understanding between Zambia and Angola to construct roads linking the two countries is a clear indication that the government is being practical in ensuring that Zambia is interlinked.
During President Hakainde Hichilema’s recent state visit to Angola, Zambia signed an MoU
with that country to construct roads and other infrastructure facilities connecting the two countries.
The roads to be constructed will connect the two countries at Jimbe, in North-Western Province and through Kalabo to Sikongo in Western Province.
Speaking during a ZNBC TV1 programme: Government forum, the Minister said other projects earmarked are the rehabilitation of the roads to link Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) at Mokambo, Sakanya and Kasumbalesa on the Copperbelt.
Others are the Kambimba-Kolwezi, Solwezi – Kipushi, and Kasomeno to Mwenda also connecting Zambia and the DRC.
“All these projects are meant to link Zambia and her neighbours thereby improving trade and commerce of the country.” Eng. Milupi said. MIHUD/PRO.
