—–The Alliance for Democracy and Development (ADD) in Central Province has commended government for finding stakeholders to revamp Mulungushi Textiles of Zambia.

ADD Provincial Chairperson, Frederick Mulando, told ZANIS in an interview that news that government had found stakeholders was welcome because once the company becomes functional poverty would be reduced in Kabwe.

Mr Mulando also said levels of unemployment would also reduce among young people in the province as many of those to be employed will come from various districts.

He said it was unfortunate that the company had closed three times, hence the need to address real reasons for the company to fail to make profits.

Mr Mulando also urged Kabwe Municipal Council to become innovative and find ways of making money instead of depending much on government.

He advised the council to construct houses, go into agro and livestock farming and set up competitive businesses that would see the local authority survive on its own.

Mr Mulando called on councillors to be creative and think beyond their tenure of office if they are to leave behind a mark that generations will appreciate.

Last week, Defense Minister, Geoffrey Mwamba, said government had found stakeholders to resume operations at Mulungushi Textiles of Zambia.

In another development Mr Mulando said his party bemoans the loss of more than 50 people who died in a road traffic accident in Chibombo district last week.

Mr Mulando said his party wishes bereaved families God’s guidance and comfort during this time of mourning.
