Shangombo long known as the most primitive sport in the Zambian Enterprise has seen light following the construction of a thermo power station by ZESCO.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Western Province Minister, Adonisi Mufalali, said there was need to build a power station at the Siyoma Falls in Shangombo district.
Mr. Mufalali said the power station could help avert the looming electricity shortage in the SADC region.
He further disclosed that the infrastructure can earn Zambia revenue through export of power to neighboring Angola.
He said the hydro power station at Siyoma Falls would also boost agriculture and tourism along the banks of the Zambezi.
Meanwhile, an Indian investor is to spend more than K17 billion on the establishment of a medical diagnostic centre in Zambia. BHARAT Scans Managing Director, Rajamani Emmanuel says the centre will cut down on money spent on seeking medical attention in South Africa.
Dr. Rajamani was speaking in Lusaka when he met Professor, Neil Nkanza who runs Nkanza laboratories. And professor Nkanza said the diagnostic centre will also help save lives. The company signed a memorandum of understanding with government on Saturday.
