LUMWANA Mining Company (LMC) has been highly commended by Government over its continued support towards the development of Kalumbila district. Kalumbila district commissioner Robison Kalota said LMC, working in partnership with the local communities, had delivered various infrastructure projects in the three chiefdoms of Senior Chief Mukumbi, Chief Mumena and Chief Matebo. Mr Kalota said the infrastructure being promoted by Lumwana Mining Company was making significant contribution towards the development of the district. He was speaking during the handover ceremony of two teachers’ houses at Kalengelenge Primary School in Senior Chief Mukumbi’s area built at a cost of K287,300 yesterday. “This is helping Government through the Ministry of General Education to improve the delivery of quality education,” he said. He said the building of school infrastructure had helped to attract qualified manpower as well as improving the environment for learners in the three chiefdoms. “I therefore wish to commend Lumwana Mining Company for its continued support and partnership in the district,” he said. He also implored the mine management to continue with the good works. And LMC senior corporate affairs manager Nathan Chishimba said the company was determined to supplement Government efforts by improving the welfare of rural teachers and pupils through the direct delivery of improved infrastructure. In a speech read for him by Lumwana mine sustainability manager Christopher Mukala, Mr Chishimba said the company was also committed to building strategic partnerships with other actors to facilitate social and economic development in the Lumwana communities of Kalumbila district.
