Hakainde Hichilema’s triumph over incumbent President Edgar Lungu in last month’s general elections has kindled much optimism that better fortunes are in store for Zambia’s copper-heavy mining industry, which had a stunted performance under the previous administration. Africa Practice CEO Marcus Courage is one of those who shares this new optimism, telling Engineering News & Mining Weekly that he is hopeful that the noticeable deterioration in Zambia’s mining investment climate witnesses during the latter part of Lungu’s tenure will be reversed under Hichilema, who was sworn in as the country’s new leader on August 24.
