Kitwe Mayor Mwaya Mpasa says that it is time for the Local Authority to partner with Private Companies such as MTN to improve business and social corporate activities in the district.
Ms Mpasa said the Local Authority needs viable partnerships to accelerate development in the district.
“There are a lot of areas in which the Council can partner with a company like MTN to improve service delivery in the district. The Local Authority actually needs collaborative efforts in developing the City.”
She said this when MTN General Manager, North John Muyawala paid a courtesy call on her this morning.
Meanwhile Mr Muyawala said MTN has deliberate activities towards improving the well-being of communities.
He said the welfare of people is important as no business can be viable without customers.
This is contained in a statement issued by Kitwe City Council Public Relations Manager Chola Mwamba.
