“Given numerous inquiries, it is my duty to confirm that indeed as of last Tuesday, I am now Deputy Minister of Commerce, Trade and Industry.The movement has nothing to do with any of the web speculations whatsoever.

I am grateful to H.E. for this new challenge and to be part of the Ministry dealing with national wealth creation through SMEs, Companies and Industries. In this tour of duty, I will take keen interest on Micro SMEs or ‘Tuntemba’ and assist in enhancing their businesses.

I am also keen on the Cement industry as it is cardinal to the Pave Zambia project. I look forward to meeting ZCSMBA and ZACCI sometime soon. Turns out Lusaka Heavy Industries are based in Matero, but I will visit all areas countrywide and assist with Industrial productivity and social responsibilities.Yet again, its time to work hard.”
