Zambia Railways to lose 10 million United States dollars because of damaged railway line.

The Zambia Railways will this year fail to meet its target of transporting 137, 000 metric tons of cargo, through the Chipata-Mchinji Railway line to the port of Nacala.
This means that the company will lose about 10 million United States dollars.
This is due to the temporary halt of the operations after the rail tracks were washed away by heavy rains in Malawi and Mozambique.
Zambia Railways Director, Professor, Muyenga Attanga has confirmed the development in a press statement availed to Breeze News.
Professor Attanga says that normal operations are expected to resume in April or May this year when the company completes working on the damaged rail trucks.
He says that despite the effect on the rail line, the company is arranging for other alternatives in Malawi and Mozambique to start transporting the cargo through the port of Beira.
