SIX chiefs in Luapula province have formed a company called Bangweulu Investments Limited whose aim is to open fish farms and restocking the water bodies whose resources are fast depleting. Chief Mwansakombe and chief Nsamba of Samfya district confirmed the development in separate interviews yesterday. Chief Mwansakombe said the company was formed by traditional rulers in Samfya and surrounding areas after carrying out a series of consultations with officials from the Zambia Development Agency (ZDA), the department of fisheries. This was done through the Programme for Luapula Rural and Agriculture Development (PLRAD).
