    Feb 10th, 2017

    Speaking when he addressed Civil Servants in Sesheke District recently, Mr Nathanial Mubukwanu, Western Province Minister, said that there are a lot of economic programmes that government and cooperating partners have funded in the Province that have not realised their intended goals.“I will ensure that all projects that have been started translate into meaningful poverty reduction projects,” he said.

    The minister cited the US$55.4 Million Cashew Nut Project they worked on as a ‘gold mine’ that the people of Western Province can use to emancipate themselves from poverty.The Cashew Nut Project, which was launched in 2015 and is being implemented in the Western Province of Zambia, is a US$55.4 Million Project that is being funded by the African Development Bank in partnership with the Zambian government.

    “The cashew nut project will be rolled out across the province as early as possible in order for many people to reap its benefits,” Mr. Mubukwanu said.
