Management at Albidon Nickle Zambia limited in Mazabuka have dismissed claimsÂ that people seeking jobs at the company are being asked to travel to Ndola for medical examinations before they are offered jobs.
Company Corporate and Safety Manager, Sestus Mulenga, described as baseless, claims by Nansenga ward councillor, Jonathan Mufaya, because the company has not yet started employing people.
Dr Mulenga said the company will follow laid down guidelines set by government when
employing people adding that even the medical examination shall be conducted in line
with the ministry of labour guidelines.
He urged politicians to consult and seek advice from mine management before issuing
statements relating to the operations of the mine.
Last week, during a full council meeting, Mr Mufaya complained that people employment at the mine are being asked to travel to Ndola for medical examinations
before they could be given jobs.
Mr Mufaya charged that the move was disadvantaging local people because they cannot afford the high transport and accomodation costs while in Ndola.
