A Chinese enterprise, China Non-ferrous Metal Mining Luanshya Copper Mine (CLM) is building a police post in Luanshya district on the Copperbelt province, which has elated Zambians over its continued support of the communities in its area of operations.
Once the police post is completed next month, it will be handed over to the Ministry of Home Affairs in readiness for commissioning.
Stephen Chungu, who is Luanshya Member of Parliament, has commended CLM’s involvement in carrying out its corporate social responsibility by supporting various communities in Luanshya Town.
Chungu said the Chinese firm has proved to be committed in helping to uplift the living standards of the residents in the mining district.
Speaking in an interview, Chungu said apart from building a police post, the Chinese-owned firm is currently building a police post and has been involved in supporting peasant farmers with fertilizer annually.
The mining company is also involved in the collection of garbage to supplement government’s efforts of the country’s program of Keep Zambia Clean and Health campaign.
“As Member of Parliament for Luanshya, I am happy with China Non-ferrous Metal Mining Luanshya Copper Mine, the company has shown serious commitment to helping the community, it has been involved in a number of programs, such as garbage collection and also helping our peasant farmers with farming inputs annually,” Chungu said.
And his counterpart of Roan constituency Joseph Chishala said he is happy with the Chinese projects in his constituency.
Chishala urged Zambian nationals to work hand in hand with Chinese for the development of the country.
And a Luanshya resident Mike Nyoni thanked the Chinese for their support of the communities in the district.
Nyoni further called on Zambians to emulate Chinese work culture if they are to enable the investor to expand on their various economic projects in the district for creation of more jobs. Enditem
