The rise of Mwinilunga?

The Copperbelt Energy Company (CEC) is partnering with Tata Africa to develop a new hydro electric generation plant in Mwinilunga at an estimated cost of K400 billion.  Construction will start after completion of feasibility studies which are under way at a site along Kabompo River, with construction to last up to four years.

Mwinilunga of course is the city which we were promised by China's Zhonghui International Mining Group would be bigger than Lumwana, with the intended  investment of up to £2bn, off the back of an open pit mining project. Since then the company has been acquiring land and taking local chiefs to China.
