It quoted Defence Deputy Minister Davis Mwila during his tour to Brazil who said that the government is "recapitalising Mupepetwe, an ammunition manufacturing facility located in Serenje District.’ The site was allegedly created by Kenneth Kaunda’s UNIP during the independence struggles in the region.... to produce and supply bombs (landmines) and bullets to liberation movements in the region". But after it was eventually scaled down. More detail via Zambian Watchdog.
