Action Aid Zambia has demanded that KCM be shut to allow investigations take place so as ensure that Zambians know how much the mine makes.
Action Aid country director Pamela Chisanga observed that there is need for people to be told the truth about how much the mine makes in profits hence government should consider shutting the mine down for investigation if it does not know what is obtaining at the mine.
And Ms Chisanga demanded that President Micheal Sata gives the government’s position on the matter.
She said it was disheartening to see the government remain mute on the KCM saga.
Chisanga said the statement by KCM owner Anil Agarwal is serious and should be investigated.
Meanwhile Ms. Chisanga said the Police and the Anti Corruption Commission should come in to investigate the matter.
She said the matter is criminal and Police should not just be quick to arrest opposition leaders when they hold meetings.
Agarwal is on video saying he bought KCM for a paltry US$25 million and reaps US$500 million per year.
She has since given the PF government 7 days to give a conclusive position.
