Government has secured loans totaling US$41 million for the construction of the University College of Science and Mathematics in Nalolo district, University College of Applied Arts and Commerce in Katete and the University College of Science and Technology in Kabompo. Higher Education Minister Nkandu Luo has told Parliament in a ministerial statement that financing for the construction of the three university colleges has been sourced from the Arab bank for economic development in Africa who will provide a $4.5 million loan, OPEC who will provide a loan of $10 million, the Kuwait Fund who will provide a $13 million loan and Abu Dubai Fund who will provide a loan of $13.5 million. Professor Luo says the loan agreements with the financiers have already been signed and will be disbursed once all the procurement processes have been completed. She however, states that these loan amounts are not adequate to complete the construction of the three university colleges and equip them. Professor Luo says in order to bridge the financing gap; the government of Saudi Arabia has also pledged funds towards the construction of the colleges. She says the Saudi government has not indicated the actual amount of funds committed as they are awaiting the Environmental Impact Assessment report.

The post Given Lubinda Says Government To ‘Waste’ K2 Million On ICC Consultation Process appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Government has launched a consultative process which will lead to Zambia coming up with a position on whether to leave or remain a member of the International Criminal Court(ICC). Minister of Justice Given Lubinda has said that 2 million Kwacha has been allocated to the process which will be conducted in 30 districts across the country. Speaking during a media briefing in Lusaka today, Mr Lubinda said citizens will be required to make their submissions to a team from the Ministry of justice. Lubinda said that President Edgar Lungu respected the constitution and that sovereign authority vests in the people of Zambia. Lubinda has further appealed to the media to help sensitise people on the consultative process which starts next week Monday. He said the consultative process will culminate in a report for cabinet to make a decision. And Government has assured the nation that it will not influence the countrywide consultations on whether Zambia should leave the International Criminal Court or not. Lubinda said that was the reason why Cabinet has not come up with a position on whether Zambia should leave the ICC or not. Lubinda said that government does not want the consultations to be a partisan issue, but a process which reflects the wishes of the Zambian people. Lubinda also said that the ruling Patriotic Front equally does not have a position on the matter and will not engage in any campaigns for or against Zambia’s membership of the ICC. Asked whether government has reflected on the consequences of Zambia leaving the ICC, Mr. Lubinda told journalists that government does not want to get involved in discussing the matter, before adding that government desires that Zambian citizens discuss this matter on their own. Zambia became a member of the ICC in 2002. The post Given Lubinda Says Government To ‘Waste’ K2 Million On ICC Consultation Process appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Emmanuel Mayuka has been ruled out of the international friendly match against Zimbabwe due to logistical challenges. Chipolopolo Coach Wedson Nyirenda had recalled the Zamalek striker for Sunday’s match but the 2012 Golden Boot winner could not travel as he had to travel back to his base in Egypt after his side faced Nigerian side Enugu Rangers in the CAF Champions League. Mayuka’s withdrawal leaves out Mamelodi Sundowns goalie Kennedy Mweene as the only foreign based player in the team that Nyirenda is using to prepare for the African Nations Championship (CHAN) tie against Swaziland in July. Zambia also has an Africa Cup of Nations fixture against Mozambique in June. “Mayuka could not be with the team because for this game at the time we called him his team had a game in Nigeria and he had to go back to Egypt and then the business of re-connecting so we excused him,†said Nyirenda. Meanwhile the team is expected to leave for Harare this afternoon where they will set up camp for Sunday’s match. FULL TEAM: GOALKEEPERS: Jacob Banda (Zesco United) Racha Kola (Zanaco) Allan Chibwe (Power Dynamos) Kennedy Mweene (Mamelodi Sundowns) DEFENDERS: Taonga Bwembya (Zanaco), Donashano Malama (Nkana), Fackson Kapumbu (Zesco United), Mweene Mumbi (Green Buffaloes), Ziyo Tembo (Zanaco), Isaac Shamujompa (Napsa (Stars), Adrian Chama (Green Buffaloes), Billy Mutale (Power Dynamos), George Chilufya (Zanaco) MIDFIELDERS: Mischeck Chaila, John Ching’andu, Kondwani Mtonga (all Zesco United), Clatous Chama (Lusaka Dyanmos), Kelvin Mubanga , Fwayo Tembo (both Power Dynamos), Justin Banda (Napsa Stars), Mwila Phiri (Choma Eagles), Augustine Mulenga (Zanaco), Mukubanga Siambombe (Zamcoal Diggers) STRIKERS: Jackson Mwanza (Zesco United), Justin Shonga (Nkhwazi), Chitiya Mususu (Napsa Stars), Ronald Kampamba (Nkana) The post Mayuka Out Of Zim Friendly appeared first on Zambia Reports.
