NKWETO MFULA, Chililabombwe
TWO South African giant stores are earmarked for construction in Chililabombwe to afford residents with improved delivery of goods and services, a senior civic leader has said.
Currently, Shoprite Checkers is constructing a shop in the central business district, while another piece of land has been availed to Pick ‘n’ Pay to put up a shop at Kasumbalesa one-stop-border post.
Chililabombwe mayor Paul Kabuswe said the the construction of a store by Shoprite has progressed.
“The town will soon have two giant stores being constructed by Shoprite chain of stores within the central business district,” he said.
Mr Kabuswe said the infrastructure development will result in creation of jobs for the people in the district.
Mr Kabuswe described the mining town as one of the growing regions on the Copperbelt Province saying, “Chililabombwe is experiencing a major facelift in terms of infrastructure development.”
He cited some of the developments such as the rehabilitation of 11.7 kilometre road network at a cost of K67 million, as well as the skills training centre.
Mr Kabuswe appealed to other investors to consider establishing economic ventures in the area.
He also called on the two mining firms, Konkola Copper Mine and Lubambe Copper Mine and other corporate entities to give back to the communities through their corporate social responsibility programmes as way of contributing to improving the living standards of the people.
On Keep Zambia Clean and Health Campaign, Mr Kabuswe said the council has embarked on a massive clean-up of the district and has engaged the services of private companies in garbage collection to contribute towards the cleanliness of the border town.
