This is an update, further to our earlier statement of 5th December 2017, in which we announced the suspension train services between New Kapiri Mposhi and Nakonde Stations in Zambia.
As unionized employees continue to stay away from work, we have mobilized management staff to run freight trains in the Zambian region.
Freight trains are, therefore, running as planned.
However, passenger train operations in Zambia remain suspended until further notice.
In the meantime, funds to pay the striking employees have been secured and we are optimistic that the situation will be fully resolved by Monday 11th December 2017.
