Cotton ginnery to spur Lundazi’s production

Plans to construct a cotton ginnery in Lundazi, are in the pipeline, the Citizens Economic Empowerment Commission (CEEC) has announced.

Likando Mukumbuta, CEEC Director General said the project will spur Lundazi’s potential for cotton development.

Mukumbuta said the ginnery will provide employment to the local community.

Digani Nyirenda, District Farmers Association (DFA) Vice-Chairperson commended CEEC for the development and for involving the association to spearhead the process as the main stakeholders.

Over the past few years, cotton farmers in Lundazi have experienced a lot of challenges, such as poor commodity prices for the seed cotton and poor extension services led to the commodity growing in the district being at the verge of collapsing.
