Nikiwe Bikitsha to visit Lusaka

Seasoned journalist, Nikiwe Bikitsha, visits Zambia to explore business opportunities in its capital Lusaka as part of the Standard Bank sponsored campaign #AfricaConnected.

Bikitsha has touched down in various African countries, including Mozambique, Nigeria, Kenya and Cote d'Ivoire to engage business people on the challenges and benefits of doing business in Africa.

What we know is that Zambia is world's copper producing capital. That's one element which has largely driven that economy, but we want to find out other things.
