Economy Traditional leader cheered by the possible re-opening of Albidon Nickel Mine

Chief Naluama of Mazabuka says he is ready to support the Chinese investor who has shown interest to run the closed Albidon Munali Nickel Mine in his Chiefdom.

The chief told ZANIS in Mazabuka today that any investor with meaningful programmes aimed at uplifting the livelihood of the community is welcome in his chiefdom as long as such an investor has been endorsed by government.

Chief Naluama said reports that negotiations between government and the investor have reached an advanced stage has cheered his subjects who had lost jobs at the closed mine.

He said the sudden closure of the mine left families many in financial difficulties as most men in the surrounding community worked at the mine.

Chief Naluama however, urged government to speed up the negotiations and ensure operations resume immediately to avoid the vandalism of equipment.

Meanwhile, Chief Naluama has welcomed the surrender of 1,000 hectares of land to the displaced families by Albidon mine management.

The chief expressed happiness that the mine realised that the land it had acquired was too large for its mining activities.

  1. Zambians must have their OWN mines management system and stop relying on these Chinese investors. I will never stop saying that.

  2. On “The chief told ZANIS in Mazabuka today that any investor with meaningful programmes aimed at uplifting the livelihood of the community is welcome in his chiefdom as long as such an investor has been endorsed by government”, this is good wisedom from the Chief. I hope GRZ will find a good investor for the mine, but please let us look to Zambians as investor than running to foreigners always.

    The only way Zambia will have full benefits froms mine activities is to have indegionoue people owning the mines as they will make sure fellow Zambians workers are not eaisly layed off their jobs.

    I hope the MMD GRZ is taking care of this fact. Otherwise, let us use LuSE effectively for our good as Zambia people.

  3. What support can this chief offer? Has he got a couple of million dollars to invest in the mine?

  4. #2 I agree with you but we African and Zambians in particular do not like each other. We are all selfish and don’t like to support each other. Even in the diaspora we shun each other.

  5. YAYAAYYYAAAAAA CHINESE AGAIN?? Look at Nkandabwe Coal Mine in Sinazeze?? Look at NFCA IN CHAMBISHI?? Maaaamaaaamaa Maaaaaaawe. Trouble at Albidon, not Chinese, better Zambians.
