China Cancels Debt for $70 Million Levy Stadium

The Chinese government has announced the cancellation of another debt owed by Zambia totalling $70 million.

Chinese Ambassador to Zambia Li Jie announced the development when he paid a courtesy call on Copperbelt Minister Japhen Mwakalombe at the provincial office in Ndola.

He said the debt is in relation to a loan obtained by Zambia for the construction of the multi-purpose Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola which cost over $70 million to build.

Levy Mwanawasa Stadium, named after third president Levy Mwanawasa, is used mostly for football matches and has a capacity of 49,800 people.

It is situated on T3 High-way well known as Ndola- Kitwe dual carriageway.

And Ambassador Li has reaffirmed his government’s continued commitment to all infrastructure projects being supported by his country.

    We thank the Chinese government for councoulation of debts the move is well come but let Zambian government not over load in credits because in the end we will found ourselves in surrendering our country in exchange for debts. Watch out Zambian government.

    Any debt cancellation to a person or nation is a welcome move therefore, i would like to recommend the Chines Government for the gesture they have done to mother Zambia. Bravo the to the PRC, hoping other Countries can emulate the Chines Goverment to cancell Zambias debt.
