KCM introduces computerized entry

Headlines KCM introduces computerized entry

Konkola Copper Mines has introduced a computerized entry system to prevent rampant theft of copper and equipment.

This means that mine suppliers entering the company’s premises will first have their finger prints taken and used for configuration whenever they will visit the mine.

And Mine Suppliers and Contractors Association president Fanuel Banda has called on members to remain calm in view of the newly introduced computerized access to the mine.

Mr. Banda has told members that the introduction of computerized entry to the plant is meant to prevent theft of copper and equipment.

Mr Banda says KCM has agreed to extend the computerization of access to the plant by people operating at the company so that all the registered suppliers and contractors are covered.

He says his association has held meetings with KCM management and the company has undertaken to extend the exercise in order to cover all members.

Mr Banda says KCM’s resolve to extend the exercise is in recognition of the fact that there was no proper communication to the stakeholders before the company introduced the system.

He says most suppliers and contractors were caught unawares because they were being barred until their finger prints had been taken resulting into confusion at the main gate, resulting into loss of business by suppliers.

  1. “And Mine Suppliers and Contractors Association president Fanuel Banda has called on members to remain calm in view of the newly introduced computerized access to the mine”

    Baba imwe ba Fan! why are you calming down your members if they are real suppliers and not suppliers namanja yakulu?

  2. Barclays Bank has been using this system for its premier or presitige customers at Elunda Park. If one is clean there is no need to be calmed down.

  3. bakabolala banyanya. we will introduce the same system at state house and cabinet office.

  4. They’ve been trying to implement this system and link it to the payroll system for over two years, and have successfully been failing thru!!! I doubt realy that this is to curb copper thefts as some of u are made to believe, bakawalala ba copper steal truckloads of copper, unless someone says even trucks are to be finger printed… hahaha

  5. The whole concept is to start paying workers only for the number of hours they will seem to be on the plant. They will start getting 2 kwacha and very soon… This is just what you get when you have a very weak Leader as President.
