  • Description

    IN ZAMBIA, PRESIDENT KAUNDA HAS OPENED THE COUNTRY'S FIRST TOBACCO-PACKING PLANT IN LUSAKA.

    AND WHILE PERFORMING THE OPENING CEREMONY, THE PRESIDENT MADE A POINT OF DENYING RUMOURS THAT UNDER NEW ECONOMIC REFORMS. CREDIT FOR NON-ZAMBIAN FARMERS WOULD BE RESTRICTED.

    HE TOLD HIS AUDIENCE THAT THE COUNTRY NEEDED MORE TOBACCO FARMERS, AND THEREFORE LOANS WOULD STILL BE AVAILABLE TO ALL FARMERS, NO MATTER WHAT COLOUR OR RACE.

    AS FAR AS ZAMBIA'S TOBACCO-HANDLING INDUSTRY IS CONCERNED, THE NEW PLANT...COSTING ABOUT 2.3 MILLION POUNDS...MAKES THE COUNTRY COMPLETELY INDEPENDENT OF OTHER NATIONS.
