MUZ has opened its first ever milling depot in Kitwe’s Chimwemwe Township which also adds to its economic venture initiatives.
With its main milling plant in Chambishi, MUZ has embarked on an ambitious program to roll out milling depots to different townships on the Copperbelt.
Speaking during the opening of the milling depots MUZ President Joseph Chewe emphasized the call by government to diversify the economy.
He said the union will not only depend on its membership subscription for sustainability but through diversification as per governments call.
And Chewe has challenged Zambians to take charge of the economy and stop complaining about the Chinese investment in Zambia.
He said there was need for Zambians to be aggressive and compete with foreign investors in the area of investment and begin to create jobs for the unemployed Zambians.
Chewe said through its investment in the milling plant, MUZ has set a new record of not only creating jobs in the mining industry but through the agriculture sector.
