Filed under: Breaking News |

Police in Chingola have arrested two people for allegedly sabotaging operations at the liquidated Konkola Copper Mines (KCM).

One of the two is an Indian national and the other one is Zambian. The duo are being investigated  for sabotage.

This is in a matter where government through the Konkola Copper Mine liquidator, Milingo Lungu, has made a formal complaint of sabotage at Chingola Central Police.

This is after operations at Nchanga smelter in Chingola have come to halt after the disappearance of a flash disk which aids the operating software.

The flash disk other missing requirements for the smelter includes the application certificate license key.

The application certificate is the licence key for software used for running the computerised system of the smelter.

Initially, there were reports of mixture of water and diesel running in the system, affecting the operations of the smelter.

Sources claim the software is stored on a flash disk and the disk has been reported missing.

According to insiders, the Liquidator Milingo Lungu had sourced finds to buy feed (concentrate) in order to run the smelter and the arrested two are reportedly the only ones tasked with the responsibility of handling it.

And government through Mines and Minerals Minister Richard Musukwa has warned all those sabotaging the liquidation that they will face the wrath of the law.

Musukwa said some elements are being used to destabilize the operations at KCM so that liquidation can be in limbo. He assured the nation that government will be on top of things and will bring the culprits to book
