Govt. focused on developing all parts of Zambia
Shang’ ombo, January 23, 2018, ZANIS--- Minister of Transport and Communications, Brian Mushimba says government remains focused on bringing development to all parts of the country.
Mr. Mushimba said several roads across the country are being constructed in order to connect all districts by road.

He stated that the Shang’ombo-Sioma road will be prioritized together in the next phase of roads that are being earmarked for construction.
The Minister is in Shang’ ombo District where he is meeting his Angolan counter-part to discuss the progress and facilities to be constructed on the Rivungu-Shang’ ombo canal.
Mr. Mushimba said President Lungu is concerned as to why there is not much progress on the Zambian side compared to the Angolan side.
ZANIS reports that the Minster was speaking when he paid a courtesy call on Shang’ ombo District Commissioner before touring the Rivungu-Shang’ombo canal where the construction works will be done.
He pointed out that his visit is meant to unlock the economic blockage so as to take advantage of the trade and commerce between Zambia and Angola.
And Shang’ombo District Commissioner, Captain Lawrence Nyambe said there is need to complete the Sioma-Shang’ombo road which he said will open an opportunity for transportation of goods between Zambia and Angola.
