A paint manufacturing company in Luapula Province has created a business opportunity for sellers of excavated edible white clay popularly known as ‘impemba.’

Commonly consumed by expectant mothers in Zambia, Impemba will now offer huge commercial benefits as the white clay is now sought after for use in paint manufacturing. Mansa’s Peacock Paints and Coatings Limited Managing Director Daison Simukonde says white clay is one of the key additives in the paint products that his company is looking for.

Bishop Simukonde explains that his company is buying white clay lumps from the local people to boost production of paint types.
