The name later changed to Zambia Mail after independence in 1964. It was later bought by the Zambian Government from private owners. It became a daily Newspaper in 1970 and the name changed to Zambia Daily Mail. A number of changes have since taken place. Sunday Mail and Financial Mail were introduced to widen the scope of coverage. The Financial Mail has since been phased out. After introducing the two additional publications, Zambia Daily Mail computerized its operations in 1994 and immediately introduced an online publication.

MOPANI Copper Mines (MCM) says it is losing about US$3 million everyday as a result of the restriction of power supply by the Copperbelt Energy Corporation (CEC) following a dispute over the increase in electricity tariffs.

CEC has in the last eight days been restricting power supply to MCM because of the latter’s refusal to pay the increased electricity tariffs.

Minister of Energy David Mabumba told journalists after a closed-door meeting with MCM and CEC officials in Kitwe yesterday that the mining firm has indicated that it is losing US$3 million everyday as a result of the CEC action. http://www.daily-mail.co.zm/mopani-cec-told-to-agree-tariffs/

MULTICHOICE says GOtv is not threatened by competition from other market players as competition enhances industrial growth and service delivery.

Company acting managing director Recha Kabwe said the company, which has reduced the price of its decoders from K360 to K199, is not moved by the coming of other players in the market.

Ms Kabwe said at a press briefing the price reduction of decoders will give the company visibility on the market.

“As part of our commitment to assist with digital migration in Zambia and to allow consumers access to digital television at an affordable price, we have reduced the price of our decoders to K199 from K360,” she said. http://www.daily-mail.co.zm/multichoice-welcomes-competition/

STATISTICS show that older men are major causes of the spread of HIV among girls and women aged between 15 and 24 who in turn spread the disease to their younger lovers.

Ministry of Health permanent secretary for administration Kennedy Malama said in an interview yesterday that sugar daddies take advantage of younger girls largely because they are economically vulnerable.

“So the younger girls contract the virus from older men and then you find that they are having an affair with a relatively younger person of their age. This is the vicious circle that is being created in the country,” he said. http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/

CHAMA district commissioner Leonard Ngoma says there is need for more investments in rice processing and packaging if rice farmers in Muchinga Province are to get maximum benefits of growing the crop.

Mr Ngoma said in an interview yesterday that rice farmers in Chama at the moment are not getting the full value of growing the crop because they are exploited by briefcase businessmen who get their crop at uncompetitive prices.

“As a district, we grow a lot of rice and we would like to see more investments in the processing and packaging of rice because at the moment, we only have one processing plant for rice. If we have more, this can help our farmers to get value for their rice,” he said. http://www.daily-mail.co.zm/rice-farmers-not-getting-full-value/
