Economy to rebound-Kambwili


Chief Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili says the Zambian economy is headed for a recovery following the appreciation of the kwacha and the recent increase of commodity prices at the international market.

Mr Kambwili, who is Information Minister, says in the past days, the kwacha gained strength against the dollar, an indication that the economic situation was improving.

He also disclosed that the price of Copper at the London Metal

Exchange has gained and it may gain even further in the coming days.

Mr Kambwili says Zambians should not be cheated that the nation is

headed for worser times because government is doing its best to

improve the situation.

Mr Kambwili, who is also Roan Member of Parliament, said this in

Luanshya this afternoon during the ground breaking ceremony for the

Section Three Clinic which will be built at the cost of over 400

thousand kwacha.

And Luanshya District Medical Officer Peter Mulenga says the clinic

will cater for a catchment area of about 17 thousand people.

Dr Mulenga says at present, people in several sections of Roan area

were moving long distances to access medical help.

And M.S. Control Zambia Projects Manager Nicholas Kunda says his firm

will finish constructing the Out Patient Clinic within three of the

four months allocated under the contract.
