Katanga Governor invites drivers

LOWER Katanga Province Governor Kazembe Musonda has invited representatives of drivers’ associations for a meeting at his office next week to ensure continued flow of traffic in and out of the Democratic Republic of Congo through the Kasumbalesa border post.
The over 500 heavy trucks which had been marooned at Kasumbalesa border on the Copperbelt after drivers refused to drive into the DRC citing harassment began entering that country on Saturday.
The Congolese government said yesterday the situation had begun normalising after meetings between Zambian and Congolese government officials.
The Congolese government said this in a statement issued in Lusaka yesterday by outgoing consul-general at the Zambian Embassy in DRC Davies Sankwana, who thanked drivers for an amicable resolution of the challenge.
“Mr Musonda has invited drivers’ association representatives for a meeting at his office on January 11, 2017 at 10:00 hours to further deliberate and assure the drivers of their safety as they carry out operations in DRC,” he said.
