Labour Minister, Fackson Shamenda has said that government wants to put an end to outsourcing and sub-contracting of labour. Mr Shamenda said that outsourcing has caused a lot of problems especially in the mining sector, before adding that the Law is currently being changed to do away with the practice of subcontracting and outsourcing of labour.
