The end of tenure for the out-going office bearers at the Zambia-South Africa Business Forum (ZSBF) Board has seen a new team, that includes renowned Lusaka Lawyer Lewis Mosho, taking positions.
Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba made the announcement yesterday, saying the new board, which would run for two years, would be presided over by Dr. Chiara Chiumya, a former Assistant Director at Bank of Zambia.
“Other new members of the board include Laurence Chibwe, Managing Director and Principal Architect of Afritects based in South Africa and Dr. Maboreng Managka Agnes Maharaswa a renowned Strategic Management and Policy Development expert while Lewis Mosho the Managing Partner at Lewis Nathan Advocates, a Zambian Law firm was also appointed board member,” first Secretary Press at the Mission Naomi Nyawali stated yesterday.
“Dr. Pule Mutati a Specialist Cardiologist and Head of Clinical and Intervention Cardiology together with Ms. Chiboni Evans, Chief Executive Officer at South African Electro-Technical Export Council made the list of the new board. The list also includes Mr John Kayula, Mr Augustine Chisembele, Mr. Ferdinand Simanya, Mrs Beauty Mtonga and Mr Dirk Hanecome.”
Unveiling the new board at a ceremony held at the Zambian Chancery in Pretoria, High Commissioner Mwamba urged the board members to work towards promoting trade partnerships between the two countries.
“Mr. Mwamba urged the board members to work towards promoting trade partnerships between the two countries adding that there was need to strike trade balance in which both countries had a win-win situation. He observed that Zambia’s exports of goods and services to South Africa were less as it was that country that dominated the trade between the two countries,” stated Nyawali.
“Mr. Mwamba further appealed to the new board to ensure that the establishment of the proposed export zone on the Copperbelt province by the Gauteng province of South Africa was actualised as it would reduce on costs of doing business. He thanked the out-going board for their dedication and commitment to the promotion of trade and investment opportunities between the two countries.”
