China to build Zambia – Malawi rail link

61

The Zambian and Chinese governments have agreed plans to build a railway that will link Malawi and neighbours Zambia.

The contract to construct the rail link between central Zambia and the Malawian border was signed Tuesday in the Zambian capital Lusaka by Zambian minister of transport and communications Mr Brian Mushimba and representatives of China Railway Construction Corporation.

railThe 389km line will run east from a junction with the 1067mm-gauge Lusaka – Mpika – Nakonde line at Serenje to Petauke and Chipata in Zambia where it will meet the existing line to Lilongwe in Malawi and the port of Nacala in Mozambique.

The rail link will cost US$US2.3bn and Zambia hopes it will reduce the distance by rail from Kapiri M’poshi in Zambia to the Indian Ocean to 1500km.

  1. My question is, will Malawi utilise this railway line to the benefit of our economy? We re busy transporting our fuel by road yet we can do it by train which more cost effective than by road, tinene kuti ndikomwe mukudyera inu ndalama kuyerekeza ndi train? Please boma lathu muzikhalako serious popanga zinthu.

  2. Its a gud development,bt if iwere president of Malawi iwould have discuss wth Chinese Govnment 2 build a Rail from Limbe 2 Nsanje first coz dis Rail is very important 2 da development of dis country

  3. Am afraid for those who are inpower they just stealing the money and need donors to provide devlpmnt here.mbuzi zadyera atsogo akumalawi

  4. These chinese are very clever, they can’t just agree to give us these developments for free, they is something they are benefiting with our country. And I wonder with africa, won’t stop sleeping, we have alot of engeneering graduates who graduated from our Universities but they can’t work practically, thats why will never develop, we depend on foreign engeneerz while ours are engeneers by name!

  8. Ofcorse many African countries we are poor but we’ve got alot of riches from our natural resources, than in America, Asia, even in Europe. Bcz most of their natural resources the’ve already used, So, that’s why America & China akulimbilana m’maiko akuno Ku Africa.

  9. These Chinese they’re very brilliant &they’ve already occupied in many countries here in Africa that’s why Balak Obama warned Zuma here that @the end they’ll start to own even our on Land here in Africa & gate more our African resources here they are very clever. So don’t enjoy too much for their favours & offers. Bcz they know how more they’ll gained.

    • Thats very true…… These Chinese cannot be trusted….. The Taiwanese were better…… The Americams just wants human rights…. these Chinese dont specify…. what they exactly want…. they might really b wanting something serious from us…..o

  10. if the chinese will be caught taking valuable natural resources from africa in exchange of the infrastructure developments we should not cry as we r selling ourselves to them.
    very soon they will occupy our land and grow the already overpopulated countries.

  11. Bravo Zambian Government,,,,, while our neighbours are busy asking Chinese Government for meaningful development projects our Government are busy stealing taxpayers moneys just to enrich themselves,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, shame on uuuuuuu
