Monze Expo geared


Monze Expo Committee has continued its push to identify areas of investment as the big event nears its climax by ensuring that all the places with potential are highlighted.

Having completed their tour of the Eastern part of the district where they have made a number of discoveries including Gemstone prospects last week, the Committee on Wednesday shifted its attention to the Western part of the district where they have earmarked on a number of economic activities including value addition to livestock products and tourism activities.

Speaking to the media after the Committee toured 3 sites in Monze West Council Public Relations Officer Kanchele Kanchele said the committee was trying to ensure diligence before investors are taken round the district to check what it has to offer.

Mr Kanchele was speaking on behalf of the committee, he said Lochinvar National Park home to a rear Antelope specie, the Black Lechwe, has not been marketed to its full potential as a tourist destination which can attract more economic values in the district.

He said the National Park is the only place in the world where people can view the Black Lechwe.

Mr Kachele said some service providers in the tourism industry have shown interest in investing on the Safaris in the park.

He also said the Committee visited Kalahari Geo Energy, a company doing Geo-thermal exploration works in Bweengwa which he described as the next big thing in the district.

And Kalahari Geo Energy Chief Executive Officer Peter Vivian-Neal said his company will be exhibiting at the Southern Province Tourism and Investment Expo where they will make a presentation of the geo-thermal exploration works.

He explained that once operational, the Geothermal project will create thousands of jobs in both direct and indirect jobs.
