ALLOW me to use your paper to find out what is going on with regard to the reopening of Mulungushi Textiles in Kabwe.In 2016, a lot of hope was given to the nation at large and to Kabwe town residents in particular that many jobs were in the offing after the textile is opened in the not too distant future.
And to give impetus to the hope which was created, we saw a lot of activity going on inside and outside the surroundings of the plant.
Unfortunately, in no time the activity slowly but surely started dwindling.
Today, there is “literally nothing’’ to write home about as to what is really going on at this multi-employer textiles plant.
Needless to say, the situation described above begs a question as to what the Government, through the Ministry of Commerce, Trade and Industry, the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) and co-operating partners, is doing to reopen the plant.
Can somebody among the relevant authorities help remove the veil covering this economically important matter?
