Kagem Mining Applauds Government’s Initiative to Upskill Workforce

Kagem Mining Limited (Kagem) participated in the joint Labour Day celebrations held at Lufwanyama Boarding School Hall. The event brought together representatives from government, mining companies, trade unions and others operating in Lufwanyama.

Kagem welcomed the government’s call to improve productivity through continuous improvement and upskilling of staff. 

The Lufwanyama’s District Commissioner, Mr. Justin Mwalikwa, emphasized the importance of a skilled labour force and government’s efforts to support skills training.

Kagem recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with TEVETA to support training in industry-specific skills for its staff. The company also conducts regular internal training sessions.

“The restoration and transformation of the economy cannot be realised without the dedication and commitment of our workers,” added Mr. Mwalikwa.

Kagem’s General Manager, Adriaan Prinsloo commented on the importance of a skilled and engaged workforce for Zambia’s economic recovery. 

He highlighted Kagem’s commitment to employee development and recognition.

During the event, long-serving staff from Kagem were awarded for their service, including those in the categories of Most Hard Working, Most Dedicated and Most Improved.

Kagem’s dedication to skills enhancement extends to the surrounding community. The mine is working with ministries to facilitate the construction of the Chapula Vocational Training Centre in Lufwanyama. 

Once completed, the infrastructure will be handed over to TEVETA for conducting skills training programmes.
