MINISTER of Transport, Works, Supply and Communications Yamfwa Mukanga has unveiled a nine-member board of directors for the Zambia Railways Limited.
Mr Mukanga installed the board members in Lusaka yesterday and implored them to enhance operations of the company by adhering to the principles of good governance and that they deliver according to the expectations of the Zambian people. "I wish to take this opportunity to inform you that Cabinet has approved the appointment of the Zambia Railways Limited board which is established under the Companies Act Number 26 of 1994 for an initial term of three years," he said.

Mr Mukanga said Zambia Railways is an important firm which is supposed to transport heavy goods and that Government is looking forward to improving the services it provides. This will help Zambia Railways attract a large market so that various goods are transported by rail, especially heavy goods which have contributed to the damage of road infrastructure. "The transportation of heavy goods on our roads has not only contributed to the damaging of the road infrastructure but has also led to increased costs of maintenance," Mr Mukanga said. He said since the takeover of Zambia Railways by Government from Railway Systems of Zambia, there has been an improvement in its performance. In an interview later, Mr Mukanga said Government is on course to establishing a national airline, an objective that awaits Cabinet approves.

The Minister of Transport, Supply, Works and Communications, Hon. Yamfwa Mukanga has declared that the Government will not allow the collapse of TAZARA and that all efforts will be made to ensure that the Authority bounced back to its best.
...
Hon. Mukanga said TAZARA had not only played a key role in the development of the Zambia, but was also good for fostering good relationships with neighbouring countries.
The Minister said his government would not like to see TAZARA collapse as that would not help the nation in anyway, but would be detrimental to the development of Zambia.
Hon. Mukanga said it was the wish of his government to ensure that the TAZARA line was connected and interlinked to many parts of the country in order to enable the railway line become viable within the country through local operations.
He said it was the desire of the Patriotic Front government to ensure that TAZARA improved its operations and emphasised that it would be illogical for Zambia to let the railway firm collapse, pointing out that within the country itself there were a lot of logistical challenges which needed the services of TAZARA.
He said it was for that reason that there were plans by the Zambian government to construct railway spurs to link TAZARA to Mpulungu from Nseluka and to Chipata from Mpika.
Hon. Mukanga said that as construction and rehabilitation of the road infrastructure was going on, it was also necessary to work on the railway network because without functional railways, the roads would continue getting damaged.
And the CCECC Vice President said he was particularly excited to have met the Minister and announced that he was aware that the Chinese government was ready and willing to reconstruct TAZARA.

Mopani should be punished for tax evasion - Mukanga http://www.postzambia.com/Joomla/post-read_article.php?articleId=18306

Yamfwa Mukanga, who is member of parliament for Kantanshi Constituency in Mufulira district, was commenting on the pilot audit on Mopani Copper Mines, which revealed glaring inconsistencies in production and revenue figures the mine submits to the Zambia Revenue Authority for tax administration, figures which the report indicated might not be trustworthy. Mukanga said no government official must protect Mopani Copper Mines for violating the law by evading tax. "I want to see the law taking its course. Let the law visit Mopani and we see what is going to happen. I believe they are not just evading tax, I believe that there are people in government benefiting from this," Mukanga said. "I am disappointed that the government has been crying every day and yet it is letting Mopani go scot-free. I want to go to Mopani and talk to management." Mukanga said the decision by the government, through ZRA, to protect Mopani and

someone getting money from this evasion of tax," Mukanga said. He said Mopani was not undertaking any corporate social responsibility. "For Mopani to be evading tax, I am very disappointed because Mufulira, where the mine is, is in a deplorable state; the roads are so bad," he said.
