ZAMBIA YOUTH EMPOWERMENT POLICY OUT

2015 National Youth Policy Action Plan for Youth Empowerment and Employment

Action Plan for Youth Empowerment and Employment

 

NOW YOU CAN BUY SHARES IN ZCCM-INVESTMENT HOLDINGS PLC

During the presentation of the 2015 National Budget, the Minister of Finance directed the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to ensure that all listed Companies on the Lusaka Stock Exchange (LuSE) complied with the LuSE minimum free (public) float requirements of 25% of the shares. In this regard, the Finance Minister announced GRZ’s intention to reduce its shareholding in ZCCM-IH from 87.5% to 60.3% by selling some of its shares (GRZ Sell Down or Transaction). The objectives of the Preferential Secondary Market Offer are as follows:

  1. To increase economic participation of Zambian citizens in economic development through a Preferential Secondary Market Offer of shares to Zambian citizens;
  2. To ensure a broad distribution of shares in order to increase the liquidity and trading of ZCCM-IH shares on the LuSE;
  • To comply with LuSE Listings Requirements regarding the minimum percentage of shareholding available to the public;
  1. Implement GRZ’s initial intention of the second phase of privatisation, specifically the sale of part of its shares in ZCCM-IH; and
  2. To raise revenue for the Treasury through the sale of GRZ’s shares in ZCCM-IH.

The primary rationale for the Preferential Secondary Market Offer is to afford Zambian citizens the opportunity to invest in Zambia’s mining industry, and the Zambian capital market, through an investment in ZCCM-IH.

On facebook, Zambians can search for ‘ZCCM IH SHARES’ and like the page or email

A MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR THE LATE PRESIDENT HIS EXCELLENCY MR. MICHAEL CHILUFYA SATA

IT will be exactly a year ago on Wednesday, 28th October, 2015 since our beloved Republican President, His Excellency Mr. Michael Chilufya Sata passed on. This was a trying moment for the nation of Zambia as we had once again lost a sitting President.

The High Commission of Zambia wishes to encourage all Zambians in South Africa, Lesotho and Madagascar to gather in their respective areas and observe a moment of silence at Midday (12:00 pm) to remember our beloved departed President.

Staff at the High Commission will also meet at 12:00 pm at the Chancery to join in and observe the moment of silence.

The late President was a gallant leader who served the people of Zambia selflessly and with great passion. His legacy will live on.

 

MAY HIS SOUL REST IN ETERNAL PEACE!
