Construction of the US$20 million Kafubu Mall in Ndola is nearing completion and the trading facility is expected to create more than 300 permanent jobs once completed.  

The project commenced in April last year and more than 450 local people have been engaged during the construction process. Thor Development Limited is the company contracted to build the mall.

Labour and Social Security Minister Fackson Shamenda said he was impressed with the quality and the speed of work at the shopping mall located in his constituency, Ndola Central.

“As Government, we are impressed with the quality and speed at which the contractor is working.“This facility is expected to be completed in April this year. As you can see, the place is almost completed,” he said.

He said the construction of the mall had not only created jobs for the local people but had also provided skills for the employees.

Thor Development Limited projects liaison officer Lombe Nduna told the minister that the mall had 34 shops that were expected to create permanent jobs once completed.Copyright © 2013 Times of Zambia: The Official Website, All Rights Reserved.
