CBU Students Back Govt Move On Mines

Collins CHAMA-THE Copperbelt University Students Union-COBUSU has hailed Government’s decision to acquire the majority stake in Mopani Copper Mines-MCM.
COBUSU President LAWRENCE KASONDE says the decision would NOT have come at a better time than NOW.

Mr. KASONDE was speaking during the launch of the ‘Zambia for Zambians Campaign’. He said Government has again demonstrated patriotism by ensuring that the mine is handed back to Zambians, through ZCCM-IH.

Mr. KASONDE said the newly launched organisation will engage stakeholders such as the Mine Workers Union of Zambia -MUZ, the National Union of Miners and Allied Workers-NUMAW and the Ministry of Mines over the takeover of the mine.  He said the country has a pool of competent human resource that can successfully run and manage the mine profitably.

Mr. KASONDE said there is NO need for the country to engage expatriates in fields where locals are ably qualified.
Government recently acquired ninety percent shares in Mopani Copper Mines-MCM through ZCCM-IH, a move that has been applauded by a cross section of society.
