FRECA Mining and Manufacturing Company Managing Director Mr. Fred Kasongu says he feels obliged to plough back to the University of Zambia for the knowledge he acquired from the Institution. Speaking at the School of Mines where he donated a Vehicle to the School, Mr Kasongu said his company was ready to continue to ease the operational challenges at UNZA and enter into partnerships.

And UNZA Vice-Chancellor Professor Stephen Simukanga has expressed gratitude for the donation. Speaking when he received the vehicle on behalf of the School of Mines, Professor Simukanga said the School of Mines was very strategic to the development of the mining sector in the country. He said as a public university, it was necessary that the mining sector and other stakeholders to the sector assist in building sustainable capacity for the operations of the School of Mines.

“As Management of the University of Zambia, we are greatly indebted to FRECA Mining and Manufacturing, for demonstrating to the corporate sector, that there is no limit to the extent of support that the University of Zambia can receive” he said.
