Meanwhile Eastern Province Acting Permanent Secretary Zachariah Luhanga told ZANIS in an interview in Mfuwe that the province has a lot of tourism potential.


Mr. Luhanga said the province has benefitted greatly from the tourism industry as a result of the good roads that have been constructed in the province.


He said Eastern Province has benefitted from the Link Zambia 8000 and this has helped  to open up many tourist attractions in the area.


Mr. Luhanga said the boost in tourism has also created employment and resulted in the improved living standards for the locals.


He has since appealed to the investors in the tourism industry to revisit the wages they give to their workers.


Mr. Luhanga said despite providing employment to the local people, most lodges don’t give wages that befit the amount of labour that the workers offer.
