Zambian Coal Miner to Finalize $560 Million of Power-Plant Loans

Maamba Collieries Ltd., the Nava Bharat Singapore Pte Ltd. unit building Zambia’s first coal-fired power plant in 50 years, said it will finalize loans of $560 million by December.

Plans to have the debt in place by August were postponed while the company waited for legislation exempting the electricity industry from having to bill in local currency, Janardhan Lavu, a spokesman for Maamba, said in an interview in Lusaka, the Zambian capital, today.

Ghana’s seaports vision requires modernised ports

utch Ambassador to Ghana Hans Docter has said Ghana’s quest to become the shipping hub of the West African sub-region can only be realised if its seaports are well-developed into first-class ports.

“Ghana’s seaports hold good prospects for the development of the country, and efforts should be made to expand them to handle huge volumes of cargoes,” said Mr. Docter. “The Tema and Takoradi Ports have been stretched to their limits and need modernisation.”

Uganda is seeking an investor to fund and operate its planned $2.5 billion refinery that will move the east African country closer to pumping reserves discovered seven years ago.

Uganda hopes to become a top-50 global oil producer after Tullow Oil and its then partner Heritage Oil found oil in the Albertine rift basin along the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Botswana: Lea, Milkafric Empower Dairy Entrepreneurs

The Local Enterprise Authority (LEA) and MilkAfric, a milk processing company, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) through which the two entities will empower young dairy entrepreneurs.

A press release said through this agreement, an anchor dairy farm in which LEA and MilkAfric had developed a comprehensive national dairy pilot out grower scheme in the Lobatse area, would model all dairy farming requirements.

The release said milk shortage was a serious challenge as there were only 5 000 lactating cows in Botswana out of the 15 000 milking cows needed to meet the 61 million litres of milk in demand annually in Botswana.

Botswana launches network operator ahead of telecoms privatisation

BoFiNet will remain a state-owned entity when Botswana Telecom IPO takes place.

Botswana Telecom's newly spun-out network arm has begun operating as an autonomous entity, enabling the country to take a major step forward in the privatisation of its incumbent telecoms operator.

The telco was split into two late last year and Botswana Fibre Networks, or BoFiNet, was officially launched last week as a wholesale provider of network access, The Tswana Times reported.

Zambia to cede control in copper mines

The Zambian government continues to step back from nationalisation as it now looks to cut its stake in the once dominant ZCCM Investment Holdings.

ZCCM once dominated the Zambian copper industry as the state mining company following the nationalisation of Anglo American assets in the 1970s. (M&G)

Zambia plans to cede control of a company that holds minority stakes in the country’s mines as Africa’s biggest copper producer takes a further step away from an era of nationalisation that began in the 1970s and slashed metal output.
