  2. This is where creative minds come in. Why not let ZCCM start its own mines so that it sets up model performance systems for all to see what exactly we want for a copper mine? You failed thugs. You call yourselves learned lawyers yet you have no model that the nation can use to make our country a better place for all.

  3. I think lets learn from Botswana how they have utilized wealth from natural resources to bring about development for all citizens. Currently they have more than $10 billion US Dollars accumulating interests in World Bank and IMF where Zed and other African countries had been going with a begging hand for debt and later on forgiveness of the same. Botswana is just chewing the interest generated, they have already worked. Just interest and revenue from tax is enough to continue with developmental projects. Plz let us learn and do it right this time. Copper is a waste asset, but but interest on substantial deposits is sustainable. Let us save more and spend less for our childrens sake!
