The statement issued by Honorable Kabuswe the mines minister this morning is an indication of a major step in the right direction and a sign of a listening government.

For the past few months the youths, women, Clergy and miners of Chililabombwe and Chingola have been aggressively calling for something to be done about KCM by demanding for the return of Vedanta Resources since the community is one that will lose out if the asset were to be eternally lost due to lack of re-capitalization.

However, government was unfortunately considerably quiet on the matter in spite of the many demands and loud petitions from the community members.

But the very instruction given by the Mines Minister today has given hope to the hundreds of Community members of Chililabombwe and Chingola especially youths who are looking forward to a KCM that is fully functional and actively contributing to the local economies.

We are therefore elated as a community that Government has put into consideration the plea of the people because we strongly believe that out of these engagements, a sustainable way forward shall soon be reached to the ultimate benefit of the Zambian people.

May the spirit of hard work that Honorable Kabuswe has embodied continue to be exhibited in such bold and well meaning decisions.
