Police in Solwezi in North western Province have impounded a truck belonging to Zambeef carrying Copper Ore from Solwezi to Chingola.

North-western Province Commanding Officer, Fabian Katiba, confirmed that the Zambeef Truck Registration Number ABG 1093 was intercepted near Solwezi weigh bridge last Wednesday.

Mr. Katiba said two suspects were under investigations and will appear in court for being in possession of property believed to have been stolen or unlawfully obtained.

And a check by ZANIS at the police station found the truck parked with Zambeef product labels on both sides, but laden with copper ore instead of beef products.

Last month, another truck which was carrying copper ore believed to have been stolen from Kansanshi Mine was impounded by Solwezi Police.

Illegal mining of copper in North western Province is on the increase.

And in Mufumbwe district, an 18 year old man was trapped to death at Kalengwa as he was digging copper illegally.
