ZCCM-IH sees a drop in turnover

The Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines-Investment Holdings Plc (ZCCM-IH) have revealed that it recorded a turnover of K61 million in 2018 as compared to K95 million in 2017.
ZCCM-IH Chief Financial Officer Chilandu Sakala says compared to a profit of K848 million in 2017 it recorded an operating profit of K47 million in 2018.
Speaking during a media briefing in Lusaka yesterday, Mrs Sakala attributed this to increased competition in the lime market and technical challenges faced by its subsidiary, Ndola Lime.
“The turnover represented a 36 percent reduction in Revenue due to increased competition in the lime market and technical challenges faced by Ndola Lime PLC, “ she said.
Mrs Sakala disclosed that said a 95 percent decline in operating profit was recorded owing to decrease in copper price participation income from K719 million in 2017 to K360 million in 2018.
The K360million recorded this year was an additional default interest awarded by the court on the Konkola Copper Mines PPI receiva…

SA's sisters are doing it for themselves


Performances on the international stage over the past few weeks once again highlighted the potential of South African women’s sport.
The SA netball team seem to be re-establishing themselves as one of the powerhouses of the sport, while road cyclist Ashleigh Moolman-Passio claimed her second overall Giro del Toscana title.
Caster Semenya raced to her record third world title while also becoming only the second South African to win two medals in individual events at the world athletics championships.
Two months ago rowing’s Kirsten McCann became the first SA women to win a gold medal at the at the World Cup regatta in Lucerne.
In July the Proteas cricket team stopped one match short of reaching the Women’s World Cup final, while the national women’s hockey team earned their places for next year’s World Cup in London.
Unfortunately, these women are the exception rather than the norm in a world dominated by men.
A common thread in the success of these women is that that th…

Row over sexist Argentine manual put to rest

The CEO of the Local Organising Committee for the 2018 World Cup in Russia said that the Argentine football federation (AFA) had apologised for a sexist chapter included in a manual given out to players, staff and journalists and that the controversy had been put to rest. Alexei Sorokin made the remarks when asked during an interview with EFE about a chapter in the manual that gave advice on picking up Russian women.
“They’ve apologised and removed the chapter,” Sorokin said on Friday in Madrid, where he attended a 2018 World Cup presentation ceremony at the Russian Embassy. The manual containing the chapter “What to do to have a chance with a Russian girl” was handed out on May 16 during a course for players journalists and AFA staff who will travel to the World Cup. Among other things, the chapter said Russian women wanted men to be clean and smell nice and did not like to be viewed as objects or to be asked “stupid questions about sex.” -

Zimbabwean players to join Zambian league

WARRIORS defenders Ocean Mushure and Dennis Dauda have become the latest Zimbabwean players to join the Zambian league after penning two-year deals with that country's soccer giants Lusaka Dynamos. Both players had strained ties with their respective teams in the past term with Dauda often dropped at CAPS United while Mushure joined the deviant-club by constantly going AWOL at Dynamos. The pair is currently part of the Lusaka Dynamos squad on tour of South Africa in preparation for the Zambian league which is scheduled to kick-off by mid-next month. Zambia have sought to align their season with the international leagues which run between August and May. And as part of the transition from their traditional March-November term, they decided to hold a stop-gap January to May period. The Zimbabwean duo will be part of the phase having already committed themselves for the next two years with the club. Mushure expressed satisfaction after signing for the Zambian league early this week. "I…

Six Guizhou Students to Carry Flags at 2018 FIFA World Cup

Whether they were dancing elegantly like a peacock, demonstrating their English skills or playing the reed-pipes like professionals, hundreds of students showed off their talent to try and earn the chance to travel abroad and broaden their horizons.

The FIFA World Cup in Russia this summer provided the opportunity for six talented students from China's southwest Guizhou province to realize their lifelong dream of going abroad.

About a month ago, a talent competition to find young flag carriers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup was held in Danzhai, a county in the province's Qiandongnan Miao and Dong autonomous prefecture.

More than 3,800 local students took part in the event, which saw 150 qualify for the final stages in a bid to win six air tickets to Russia and the chance to take part in a global event.

Mo Qiu, who plays football for her school team, along with five other local students, were finally selected and named as the flag carriers for the opening game of the World Cup th…

Zambia's Victoria Falls

One of the most spectacular sights in Africa, Victoria Falls is a mile-long marvel of mist and spray marking the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Known to locals as Mosi-oa-Tunya, “the smoke that thunders”, the roar from the world’s largest single curtain of falling water can be heard 40km away.

Spend 4 days and 3 nights in Livingstone - BOOK NOW!

The falls were named after Britain’s Queen Victoria by David Livingstone, the first European known to have crossed the Dark Continent. On coming face to face with the waterfall in 1855, the explorer and missionary incredu­lously recorded, “It has never been seen before by European eyes, but scenes so wonderful must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.” Chief Sekeletu, of the local Makololo tribe, paddled the adventurous Scotsman to Goat Island, now Livingstone Island, which is as close to the dramatic cataract as you can get. Well, almost. Today’s tourists take the same route until they, too, are surrounded by the tossing, tumblin…

Top 10 reasons to Buy Local


‘Poor standards affect ability to trade on international market’

Original article publish on the 16th of December on the Zambia Daily Mail Website by KELLY NJOMBO & ESTHER MSETEKA, Lusaka

The Zambia Bureau of Standards (ZABS) says products with poor standards are affecting the ability of local products to trade and compete on the international market.

ZABS acting director Nicodemus Malisa, however, called on consumers to desist from buying substandard products to ensure there is no market, as this will increase demand for quality products.

Mr Malisa said Zambian products have the potential to compete on the international market, but there is need to adhere to standards established by ZABS.

“The market does not demand for quality, but as an individual if you walk into a market and you demand for quality products, substandard products will not have a market, and this will promote quality products on the market.
“Products produced locally have the potential to compete on both the regional and international market, but because some of the goods are subs…
