Kambwili nulls closure of Luanshya mine

Filed under: Breaking News,Business |

Chief Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili says the decision by China Non-Ferrous Metal Company’s Luanshya Copper Mines (CLM) to place   Baluba Mine in Luanshya on care and maintenance is null and void.


Mr. Kambwili, who is also Information Minister, says the decision by the mine is outside the law.


He says as far as government is concerned, the mine is in full operation.


The Minister told a media briefing in Luanshya on Monday  that all workers who have been written to by the mine should report for work.


Mr Kambwili says government and the Chinese owned mine held meetings last week and at no time did the mine raise the issue of placing the Luanshya based mine on care and maintenance.


The Minister’s statement comes in the wake of an announcement by CLM that the Baluba Mine in Luanshya has been placed on care and maintenance – ZNBC

  4. Mr President Sir, fire all useless thugs. Kamwilli is a fool. He cannot force anybody to keep business open. Luanshaya Mines belongs to the Chinese. They paid for it and what they do with it is their prerogative. Government can buy from them if they want to run it. If the cost of production is more than copper selling price, it makes business sense to put it under care and maintenance and wait for economic cycle to change. Kamwilli is just a drain on treasury. Fire him and all those who think that they can bully investors and fellow citizens.

  5. A group of mass tort lawyers that ganged up in the UK purportedly on behalf of Zambian villagers to sue the mines for polluting a water source is a sad development. Why? Mass tort lawyers are like ransom collectors. They will extract money from the Zambian mines to the bone and keep 95% of the money and give 5% to the affected villagers. This mass tort action can cripple the mine and being foreign owned, some of the owners may negotiate lucrative deals for themselves, offload shares pushing share prices to the lowest levels and at an appropriate time buy them back and sale again when the price goes up and redirect the profits elsewhere. Will the mines survive this onslaught? This action can only be likened to an enemy who succeeds in setting dogs onto their owners. Let us wait and see.

    This is not a good development at all.

    Leadership is a serious matter
