[Cameroon Tribune] Plant scientists are generally of the view that there are many edible wild plants but due to their non-domestication, the society is inhibited from consuming those edible plants and fails to get the nutritive content therein. Cultural values and individual perceptions have also taken people away from food sources which can cause the very persons to salivate. Amongst such food plants which Cameroonians were not hot about but have developed a new love for it, is mushroom; which was often considered as poison

Brigadier General Emelda Chola has thrown the energy gauntlet onto Swedish companies whom she’s urged to quickly bring their investment into the Zambian energy sector. Brig. Gen Chola says the upward adjustment in power tariffs and eventual removal of subsidies that left a huge hole in the government treasury is expected to attract Foreign Direct Investment in the Zambian energy sector. Brig. Gen Chola is attending the an energy indaba in Malmo the 3rd largest city in Sweden and is accompanied by Charge d’ Affair Anthony Mukwita. “We have embarked on a Cost Reflective Tariff system in the Zambian energy sector that makes investing in the sector profitable now more than ever before,” Brig. Gen Chola said. Several Swedish companies domiciled in Stockholm moved to Malmo to have side line discussions today with the PS on how they could take a bite onto the Zambian energy cherry pie following the announcement of forthcoming competitive tariffs that will eventually plug the power deficit and make Zambia an energy power hub that can earn money through energy supply in the near future according to Brig Genral Chola. Brig. Gen said the presence of a high level government official has convinced energy investors in Sweden that Zambia means business in opening up its energy sector to international business. Brig. Gen Chola was the keynote speaker at the two day energy event that concludes May 31. Zambia has escalated it’s economic diplomacy call and is looking at various opportunities to make its presence in missions abroad count. Last week Foreign Affairs Minister Harry Kalaba hit the road in Scandinavia with an escalated engagement in economic diplomacy. Meanwhile, Mukwita said it would be a matter of time before ordinary people start to benefit from the efforts of various high level participation. President Edgar Lungu has emphasised that he wants nothing but greater job creation and poverty reduction on his watch and the energy sector long ignored as unprofitable is one such avenue.
