UPND president Hakainde Hichilema

The UPND says government should compel Albidon Nickel Mine in Mazabuka to compensate people who were displaced from their areas by mine.

UPND president, Hakainde Hichilema, says the mine which has now suspended operations has failed to fulfil its contractual obligations to the community.

Mr. Hichilema says Albidon Mine has not fully implemented several community projects including building new houses for the local people after demolishing their old ones.

He was speaking in Mazabuka when he visited communities in Magoto area who were relocated from their settlement by Albidon Nickel Mine.

And Mazabuka Member of Parliament, Garry Nkombo, said the mine has abandoned the community, a situation which he described as unfortunate.

Albidon Nickel mine in Mazabuka has suspended operations indefinitely citing various difficulties.

  1. Sad news about Albidon Nickel mine suspending operations and their attendant failure to fulfil their contractual obligations.

    On “He was speaking in Mazabuka when he visited communities in Magoto area who were relocated from their settlement by Albidon Nickel Mine”, this is great for president HH is in touch with the voters. Sad enough, the name ‘Magoto’ of an area doesn’t seem to exist for I know of ‘Mugoto’.

    In terms of the statements by both president HH and MP Garry Nkombo both of the UPND Team, I am impressed at their concern for the well being of the people of Mugoto including all Zambians from other areas of the country.

  3. This is a very sad state of affairs indeed and quite tricky as well. People were displaced from their farming land to pave way for this mine, which I must say, was very promising and it employed a lot of people (a friend actually left Kansanshi and joined them). But what I can say is that there is plenty of virgin land around that area and the people must make the best of it. Its tough but there is no way they are going to get compensation from those capitalists. The lesson for GRZ is that it should balance interests of the investor with that of its people. Problem is that GRZ sides with foreigners and the poor villager is left out to dry!

  5. Unfortunately,Mr HH, despite your friendly approach to advise RB’s team, you will be shocked to learn that it will receive a heavy blow and it ‘ll not yield. Goverment is soft on the so called investers. Nice piece of advice though. πŸ˜‰

  6. Am aware that policies are in place, in Zambia, that dictate that an investor displacing people because of the proposed project must compesate the affected before the project is actually implemented. How come albidon begun operations before compesating the displaced? Thats weired. This implies govt side lined that policy in favour of the investor. Very sad indeed. At the expense of a poor Zambian indeed, like No. 6 said.

  8. That the point #10, policies are there but who implements them when GRZ is always kneeling before the investors? I would also not rule out pocket lining as well yet our fellow Zambians are shifted from their ancestral land. Corrupt Politicians + Selfish Investors = Disaster for Poor People, this equation seems o be applying here.

  9. Bad timing HH, though valid call. From whence cometh amahafu to pay the displaced people? Im sure you are aware where albidon’s priorities are in the face of the current meltdown – certainly not kufukunyuka for the sake of the displaced. Why didn’t you think of putting up measures to avoid such in upcoming companies when you were busy privatising other existing firms? Busy making billions I guess

  14. Pardon me if I am wrong, but I thought I used see Gary on TV hand-in-hand with Albidon when they were handing over some houses to the displaced people. Didn’t he realise at that time that the houses were of poor quality.

  17. 17, Thenjiwe Stevens (Mrs), greetings. On your “Dreaming about impossibles and not feeling guilty at all that he has contributed oneway or another to the fall of Luashya mines.Has Anyone compelled this Hainde fimo fimo to compensate the poor Luanshya community?”, why do not you do the compelling of HH you are alluding to? I need serious people not isolated characters writing about things which are mere claims they do not have guts to do and so here is your own generated challenge and please do it for all Zambians?
    On “HH, Stop bickering plse!”, what do you mean by ‘bickering’? I am ready to give you its definition if you need it!

  19. Maestro,
    In the first place I do not wish to converse with you. Secondly just respect my opinion as I will respect yours.
    HH is a failure in everything except being what he is. Dont expect me to answer your questions again as they are always repititions and nonsense.So if you reply to me just know that I havent seen your posting hence you will be bickering for nothing and wasting your time.!.

  21. There are times I tempted to think , by holy indignation , that most Zambians in the diaspora are ghosts , demons name them. How do you fail to have sympathy for the displaced poor villages ,purely on account of geographical location. Why condemn HH? Would you not want to know the govt position on this ?Shame upon you all masqueraders. Why have this venomous hate for HH for visiting the poor made homeless by the greed investors.

  22. #4 Maestro, The problem which you overlook is that HH was not trying to get to Nabwalya to go and see the condition of the incomplete bridge on the Muti Nondo River. HH should try to be on the ground everywhere and build confidence. I think he ia s better angel than the other angel (rather disaster) we Bembas are trying to put in power if you see my drift —- the devel you know….

  25. Dr. Sixtus Mulenga was heading Abildon Mine from beginning until closure and he is a respected mining engineer. Perhaps you people could ask him about the contract with Chief Mwanachingwala over the mine. Issues of investment are difficult. Sheraton were going to put up a hotel in Zambia in the early 80s but the government gave difficult conditionalities and as you know the hotel went to Harare. One ANC leader once said in frustration over the world economic order that “the only thing worse than being exploited is NOT to be exploited”.

  26. HH is only looking at the welfare of those poor displaced citizens, and therefore i dont see what wrong he has done. There is so much hatred for the man on this blogg. Why? People were promised compensation, and its only morally right that they get what is due to them.

  28. Two wrongs do not make a right , the case of luanshya remain an important concern, yet HH visiting the poor should be appreciated. I suppose a lot of the demagogues on this blog did not know that , there was/is a nickel mine in Zambia.

  29. #27 wiseman-reborn says, you are indeed wise. Most bloogers here have such venomous hate for HH because of their failures in life and others because of stinking regionism. These chaps who rush to condemn HH are in most cases the same who shout praises for the Blooke whose political past is so chequred only an i*d*i*t would support him.

  31. In future govt must ensure that all contractual obligations made by would be investors are met and monitored within a set timeframe. I am made to understand that Albidon were stock piling nickel hoping the metal prices would go higher than what was obtaining at the time. The sudden drop in the last quarter of last year left them heavily indebted as they were borrowing based on forecast future sales. Govt should find an equity partner as most of the developmental work has been done.

  34. #38: Your gravatar is cool! on your comment, much as I would want to agree with you, am afraid I cant. I have been to countries (as you rightly put it) where people are poor but still embrace each other. What we are seeing in Zambia begs for answers. How can people who are educated, at least enough to blog, still allow themselves to be brain washed like we see on this blog? Some sound sensible on other issues but when there is a political article, their true pathetic natures show up. What wrong for instance, has HH done in this article? If people are so particular about the past of politicians, why do they sing praises for Sata???

  39. 23, Thenjiwe Stevens (Mrs), thank for your response and your failure to live up to your inquisition on 17, which I challenged on 21. Thanks also for your cowardice for it shows that you hve nothing to offer expect trying to throw mad at president HH. Your opinionated question and sentiments is thus respected according to your input and response.

    By the way, the word ‘bickering’ means “To quarrel in a tiresome, insulting manner, on petty issues”.
    I was just wondering what “quarrelling in a petty manner president HH is doing on this Albidon mine case.
    Have a great day for I know you have learnt something today which will be useful in your lifeti,e henceforth.

I do appreciate your comments though and I believe president HH will find them useful should some informant send this message you have raised to him.
    Once thing I know is that president HH is doing a great job for all Zambians at home and abroad and will reach as many as he can within this time before 2011 tripartite elections.
    On the other one you mentioned, he is simply a time…

  42. 32, Ba Moze , people who have nothing to offer or simply seek to find ways of throwing mad at president HH because of jealous will continue to do such because it (jealous) is imbedded in their nature. Just understand tham and hope they will realise that Zambia is for all Zambians, us villagers, and those who think they are town dwellers.
    Interesting enough, they president HH haters do even want to take him to task head on except throw dirty at him from afar. Interesting enough former Zambian President Mr Chiluba is doing a great job to campaign for president HH on the misconceptions of some characters as regards the Luanshya Mine and the people from there, which is best than HH doing it.

UPND has been talking about this issue for a long time. At some point, the Mazabuka MP (Nkombo) even had an open difference with Mwanawasa over these compesations. What HH is now doing is just follow up in case some bloggers think this is a new issue!

  48. 35, Engine Bbuloko, I understand your great posting. Like you put it, not all Zambians can be swayed by what is reported in the POST where characters just say things while they are out of touch with the Zambian people in all parts of the country like ba-NKOLE put it correctly.

    Anyhow, with time Zambian people who vote and perecive things in reality will make a prudent decision on president HH and the UNPD Team.

  52. This guy has a high concentration of his political base in Southern Province only. His discussions and worries is about people in the South, does he envision Southern Province as a country one day? This guy does not seem to have any leadership and all those that follow him must just give up. He cannot win Presidency by winning Southern Province alone. Banene, Maestro and others, please help this guy go national. Obama won elections by campaigning even in the so called “red states”, and getting some of those states. He should let go some of those small issues in Southern Province. Show that he is a national leader.

  54. 38, Umusungu, and 40, Engine Bbuloko, nice postings. I would like to mention that some of the comments we read on LT are due to deficiency of true information. Some characters are young and can not comprehend issues at the level of well natured and learned bloggers. Others are sick, very sick, and they need our prayers so that the good Lord God can help them. In all, let us not insult them, but seek ways to help them become of age in this 21st centuary.
    I truly believe that with good guidance, all will be well on LT very soon for we are setting the standards high, higher and highest by leadership.

  57. 58, Ghost dog, greetings. Please relax and keep cool. We need to set the standards right on LT and your input is very much needed.

    In light of the president HH issue as Grant Thornton Managing Director when Lyanshya Copper Mine was place in RECEIVERSHIP under him, I believe that he is not the best person to offer the Nation any information unless someone who has real proofs of any misdeeds by HH takes him to task or court. I must make mention that like the way president HH has let former Zambian President Chiluba FTJ to explain what exactly happened to the Zambians. This is why the Bemba people say “abakali tabalanda” for others around them speak REAL TRUTH on their behalf. Later.

  61. 59, Kalos2020, thank you very much for your sentiments and greetings. Firstly what makes you think that presidet HH has no interest in National issues and please cite examples, for I believe HH has done enough by meeting late former President LP Mwanawasa and incumbent President RB Banda on issues affaectig all Zambians. President HH did very well in Northwestern Province in the past two elections which is not a part of Southern province, unless you provide contrary to real proof following your claims that HH only concentrates on the Southern Province in your “This guy has a high concentration of his political base in Southern Province only”. He campaigned throughout all Zambia in 2008.

  63. Kalos2020, I believe you very much know that the POST which creted a false impression that it writes gospel truth always for all Zambian people is the one that has feed unsuspecting Zambian people with wrong information about HH including the former MMD members like the Undereducate. I was shocked when I was told by my brother in Kitwe that people around surrounding areas there we told that president HH was crippled or “lame” and hence not fit to be Zambian President by some campaigners in the time for 2006 elections. In the 2008 elections, people came to know HH as a real fit peorson, but were cheated about his populaty due to false pictures and campaign news in the media.

  66. 59, Kalos2020, following my comments on 69 for you and other interested characters, if you call on any Zambian in Zambia or elsewhere now I believe they will tell you that president HH is fit to be Zambian President because all his motor functions are in good shape and he is a Zambian Citizen with a sense of helping others. This is because almost all Zambians have had the opportunity to see him at campaign meetings, on TV or hear him from the radio. In light of this, cheating of the sort I described on #69 will not work in the 2011 tripartite elections if president HH participates by God’s grace.
    In light of this, this is time for HH and UPND Team skeptics to join in in the winning team.

Show that he is a national leader.” i am personally challenging you to join us and not leave the task of getting president HH to be accepted by all Zambians to me including a few others.
    There is not time of finger point who must do the job of getting the message to all corners of Zambia, we all (you kalos2020 also) SHOULD participate effectively like the USA Citizens did it for B…

    Zambia is for all Zambians as “One Zambia, One Nation”, a great thing our UNIP brothers championed in their time of ruling Zambia as a government.

    Have a blessed day and keep well.

  71. How about giving local people shares in Albion Mine for compensation. Or give them some of their bonds.

    Local communities and governments must directly benefit from the economic activity in their areas.
    Just building a few schools is not even close to enough compensation for millions or billions of dollars of nickel that are going to be gained from this mine.

It was no accident that Obama was HEAVILY supported by college graduates. Am sure the Zambian young turks can raise to the occasion. Lets leave this regionism to the days of UNIP, UPP and ANC. Lets show the country that their investment to educate us was money well spent. Lets lead the way and dont allow tribal or regional allegencies blind us. Ladies and gentlemen, we can….yes we can!

Two years ago HH sponsored a traditional celemony in Bhahati constituency which is a Bemba area and the area mp by the name of Chimbaka thanked him. HH has done a lot for so many people in Zambia but we cannot see that because of our natural hate for him and his money. Let us rise to the challenge and choose the best in hh. HH has no hand in Luansha mine unless if you listen to hear say and not facts. If you have anything bring it up and testfy in court so that they can set tribunal.

  77. People who do like performers hate HH, because he is a man of action, he does not just make noise for the sake of talking without solutions. HH is the best man zambia can ever have, and the more we accept this fact the better for you and me. We should not be influenced by these old people who never invested in life and now want to live on our tax payers money. These old people this time are suppose to be advisors, what can they offer at old age now that they could not do when they were young like me. Too much mud throwing now because they think we are still in the unip days. Big SHAME on you and me for not reasoning when choosing leaders.

  79. I like the way upnd guys pushed for the rights of these people. Keep it up. If all mps could work for their people’s rights like that then zambia would be a better place. I also like Kambwili and Chishimba for fighting for their people in their constituencies when they lost jobs in the mines.

  82. Sata brought about all this tribal talk nosense..Remember he accused levy,HH and now RB. He has managed to convice his followers that only a bemba can make a good Zambian President.He worked closely with Chiluba whom he praised and even supported his 3rd term publicly and no one called them tribal.God is watching your lips Micheal and your sympathisers.Mark my words, You will never RULE this country with your hatrate.The more you exibit your hatrate for other tribes the more they hate you. As for HH that was a good observation on Abidon.

  83. #94 I hear you my bro/sis just to add on your comment, at the time these mines were being Privatized Sata was a no. 3 man in this country, now my question is, what did he do, to stop the Privatization of Luanshya mine? HH was just appointed as a liquidator, the decision of selling the mines were made by Chiluba and his his friend at that was sata.

  85. #26 it appears you don’t read. HH was on the Copperbelt and hosted by The Press Freedom Committee of the Post newspapers at Edinburgh Hotel where he addressed issues concerning the mines. He was very clear on what needed to be done over problems in Luanshya. Don’t be led by hate. Always ask yourself ” what if he has already said something about this thing i am about to condemn him for”. In actual fact, I am challenging you to check your facts first before you comment.

  86. 98, Plot ONE, thank you very much for everything and thank the good lord for the wisdom He has continued to give His own.

    I truly believe that we as Zambians are slowly but surely getting there in terms of respect for one another. We as a people now know who is impeding the progress of Zambia politically and economically.

    I strongly believe that the 2011 elections will yield positive results for our young democracy which is somehow giving me hope that Zambian democracy will be a model that the whole world can look up to.

    Be blessed my friend and keep well.

  89. If you listen to HH’s znbc interview with Frank last year which is still existing on his website, you will like me believe that he has a plan for the country. The man admires the economy of Botswana where foreign invester partner with the local people to move the economy, and if those foreigners leave businesses can continue operating. We need to wake up zambians. HH is a man of people and I know he is the best for zambia. As for Sata its enough he has done so many attrocities for the country including selling the mines at cheaper prices with his Chiluba regime. This man for God’s sake was chiluba’s fountain of knowledge, and I blame him for Chiluba’s mistakes. He was a bad…
