“We don’t need you to persuade us to give you the opportunity to operate, it is our responsibility to build African businesses that will give jobs to our people,” he assured.

He assured of setting up a com­mittee at the Zambia Presidency to coordinate with the Jospong team to start work as a matter of urgency.

“We won an election massively, and we are going to walk the talk to improve the lives of the people” adding that, Africans must learn how to choose their leaders so that these leaders can work to the larger benefit of the people,” he said.

The Executive Chairman of JGC, Dr Joseph Siaw Agyepong who received the entourage with key executives of the companies said African waste was organic constituting 61 per cent which must be turned into fertiliser.
