Solwezi Airport - Zambia

Does anyone have any recent experience in operating in and out of Solwezi? The Jeppesen charts are completely out of date and still show a 4400' runway. My understanding is that the runway has been lengthened and significantly improved. Any current information, AIP charts, etc. would be greatly appreciated. A colleague has a trip into that airport in a corporate jet and could use any information available.

Thanking in advance!

Nice place on the river to spend a few weeks. Was there many years ago. Had crew meetings under the mango tree beside the river.
