Shoprite Group of Companies has urged African countries to continue investing in human resource development for the continent to benefit more on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by the year 2015

The Group’s Top stars producer Mynie Grove was speaking during the 2010 singing and performance talent competition in Lusaka last night.

Ms Grove has commended African governments for making remarkable progress in attaining most of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

She urged African countries to consolidate gains from the just ended 2010 Soccer World Cup in South Africa such as the One Goal campaign which is aimed at renewing commitments in attaining education for all by 2015.

Ms Grove has cited brain drain as the greatest cause of social, political and economic malaise in most African countries.

She said time has come for the continent to devise strategies that will guard against brain drain if poverty alleviation programmes are to be a success.
And speaking after emerging winner of the semi final, Shoprite Ndola Branch Manager Jameson Simemba said his group is ready for the Gala awards night in Cape Town slated for October this year.

Mr Simemba thanked management for hosting the competition for all Shoprite employees as a way of enhancing the social bonds that already exists among the Shoprite Group family.

Winners of the competition are used in the company’s corporate advertisements and other corporate events.

Shoprite employees from Zambia, Malawi and Tanzania took part in the semi final of the competition which is an annual event.
