Zambia Sugar announces the appointment of Harriet ‘KK’ as Company Secretary
Zambia’s only listed sugar manufacturing company has announced the appointment of Harriet K Katongo as its new Company Secretary after the position fell vacant on 30th September 2020.
“In accordance with Section 3.59(a) of the Lusaka Securities Exchange Listings Rules (“LuSE Listings Rules”), the Board of Directors (“the Board”) of Zambia Sugar PLC (“ZSUG” or “the Company”) wishes to announce the appointment of Harriet Kapekele-Katongo as Company Secretary effective 13th May 2021”, read the statement on SENS issued by the company’s Finance Director Raphael Chipoma who had until the announcement been performing the Board Secretary role in addition to looking after the financials.
Zambia Sugar’s choice for company secretary is both a combination of experience and expertise. According to the SENS announcement, “Harriet has been practicing law for over 15 years, both in private legal practice and as in-house Counsel”. She comes with experience of being a Company Secretary of another listed entity from her 10 years at Lafarge Holcim Zambia in the same role. Curiously enough, the hand over will be seamless as Raphael Chipoma sat in the same boardroom as colleagues during his tenure at the cement maker.
