United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has challenged the Patriotic Front (PF) Government to explain how they are creating creating 500,000 jobs when so many are now being lost. In a statement released to the media today, the UPND leader wondered whether the jobs created were purely for for ministers and politicians.

Below is the full statement

HH statement on job losses in mining sector

7th October 2015

PRESS STATEMENT

In the UPND we are deeply concerned by the scale and extent of the recent and on going job losses we are seeing in the mining sector. Looking at the numbers coming out from Mopani Copper Mines, one is left with no option but to agree that the Zambian economy has collapsed. When employees lose jobs this not only seriously affects their immediate families, but negatively impacts the Zambian nation as a whole.

With little chance to prepare for such an eventuality in terms of the exit package and in the face of the ever-rising cost of living, miners will not only lose jobs but risk being condemned to destitution along with their dependents. The PF Government must immediately address the question of how the rights of these workers can be better protected and labour laws strengthened so that those whose employment is coming to an end have the means to make the transition.

After all while the PF has meddled with the mining taxation time and time again (we have had 4 different mining taxation regimes in as many years), the real losers have been the Zambian people and the workers. How much better would the situation be for those now facing an uncertain future if the PF’s focus had been on labour reform and workers’ rights instead?

It’s unfortunate that our colleagues in the PF have also been busy looking the other way with their by-elections, heavy international travel schedule and creation of extra ministries and jobs for politicians, instead of looking at the plight of workers such as our miners who toil daily to grow our economy and industries. The fruits of this growth are then largely wasted by Government with little material benefit to the workers.

The plight of our miners raises all sorts of concerns and questions concerning the state of employment under the PF. Let the PF explain how they are creating 500,000 jobs when so many are now being lost? Are all these jobs to be created purely for ministers and politicians? Let the PF give us monthly updates on which jobs have been created and where. We do not want to hear more empty promises so let them update us on those that have already been created and not merely what they plan to create. Also, what kind of jobs are these and how are the rights of these workers protected? Or are these yet more temporary or casual positions?

The PF Government has demonstrated to us that its confrontational approach to such matters has only aggregated the situation. This is a clear indication that it lacks proper leadership to drive the economy and spur the much needed investor confidence and trust of workers.

We in the UPND therefore urge our PF colleagues to be level headed. Where it is necessary to consult others let it be so without being confrontational. It’s a different approach to dare people with solutions as opposed to inviting them to have a fruitful discussion.

    • I now understand why HH is not president. A president should look like one you can have a beer with not like one that would castigate you if you did. By the way he sounds like a nagging wife. Every single day its statement this, statement that. I hope he knows that 99.99% of the people who visit on-line publications and social media are disenfranchised!

    • HH Note that job creation is not only about Mines, We know PF have failed but publish statements that will make us believe when you are elected you will change things so that SMEs can have better Financing to create more jobs. Unfortunately Zambia only depends on Copper which is stupid yet we have other sectors that can help us Improve the economy.

      Forget PF go to the drawing board and tell us what you would do differently. Also note that we don’t expect motorcades in your era if you are truly serious to change Zambia.. NO welcoming Parties at the airport which is a stupid waste of resources and time.

It’s a different approach to dare people with solutions as opposed to inviting them to have a fruitful discussion”. I agree with HH 100%. The way Kambwili comes out, even if I had a cure for Zambian economy, I wud rather go with it to my grave than give it to Kambwili. Truly the economy has collapsed. We are just waiting for fuel increase and everyone will technically be a destitute. We were telling them about adverse effects of (a) unnecessary by-elections, (2) imprudent borrowing (3) too large cabinet, (4) caderization of the civil service and parastatal companies, (5) interference in operation of ACC, Police, etc to the point whereby corruption is now endemic, (6) uncoordinated policies where today u…

    • I hate attacking people personally. I was tempted to attack Chitutuma for the senseless comments he makes but I will restrain myself. I will instead defend his right to air his thoughtless utterances. I will, however, point out that it is a foo.lish nation that seeks a charismatic leader when it’s very existence is in the hands of incompetent politicians who cannot articulate a single economic policy. If I were Chitutuma, I would continue uttering these comments even when people tell me, “Chitutuma, you need to try critical thinking.” But being the person that he is, Chitutuma does not see anything wrong with hating on HH.

      Hey, Chitutuma, HH is rich. He does not need State House to be fed. Millions of Zambians don’t have time for charisma. Unlike HH they need food, clothing, and…

ANYTHING COMING FROM PF IS AN ABSOLUTE LIE!AND THESE LIARS HAVE BEEN FOOLING THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE SINCE 2011 WHEN THEY CAME INTO POWER. PF IS A GROUP OF PATHOLOGICAL LIARS! MR. HH, THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE ARE WAITING FOR YOU TO MOBILIZE THEM AND EMANCIPATE US FROM THIS BRUTAL AND HEARTLESS LEADERSHIP OF LUNGU AND HIS FELLOW LOOTERS. LUNGU SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO REMAIN IN OFFICE FOR MORE THAN 3 MONTHS, LEST ZAMBIA GOES INTO A TOTAL COLLAPSE.

  9. 500,000 Jobs & could see some PF ministers smiling like school children when announcement was made. No economy in Africa is capable of doing that right now. Just to give u some numbers, the US which is the biggest economy has a GDP of $17,418,295 Million USD & Zambia’s GDP is 26,610 Million USD. Simple calculation will tell you that the US Economy is 654 times more bigger than Zambian’s economy. On average in the last 12 months, the US Economy has created about 198,000 Jobs a month. If you work it out, for Zambia that would mean about 306 Jobs a month. To create 500,000 u would require 136 years & by the even EL’s great grand children would be dead.

  13. Very interesting again. Firstly, there are no reliable statistics in Zambia. The PF Government has NOT created 500,000 jobs. The blue-collar jobs created for those building roads are temporal and with funding issues, most of these jobs are casual. Real jobs cannot come when the Government has shunned education and has accepted a situation where elderly people make over half of the workforce. Real jobs are jobs that result in an individual paying taxes and contributing to the country and not those that enable an individual to serve themselves and a small family. Very few African governments have ideas to create jobs- but let me give you a picture- how many middle-class jobs would we have created if we spent half of the Eurobonds borrowed ($2.5 Billion) on employment and education?

  18. This HH guy is good at destroying, not building. During the ill-fated privatization programme, he wantonly participated in the sale of companies, for a song; Luanshya mine was one of them. So, that is why he thinks it’s not possible to create jobs. All he has done is to steal from the poor, under the pretext of privatization. So, he will never like anyone who wants to do something progressive for the masses. Deep down his heart he knows that it’s the despicable privatization he and other criminal elements participated in, which has brought most of the current economic ills, such as high unemployment and weak manufacturing base, he is talking about. Let him tell us why Colgate Palmolive, Refined Oil Products (ROP), LENCO, Premium Oils, Dunlop, Zamhort, Zambia Airways, UBZ, CH, Rover…

    • The sad out of tune self-hating song I hear from this broken record, Fuehrer, is HH sold the mines.
      I bet you, illogical thinkers like you and Kambwili cannot get past the fact that your own fellow Zambia actually participated in the process. You will hate him not because he got paid well for the job he did on behalf of the Zambian government, but because he was a Zambian. Had the contract been won by a foreigner, a white for that matter, you would not be singing such a sad sonnet day and day out. You are used to exalting people who come in from the outside. You would give them contracts willingly and then some.

      Know this, whatever money HH made from privatization, a process he did not initiate nor manage, he kept it all in Zambia. He invested it in Zambia. Other foreigners including…

Instead they go off on different tangents avoiding the topic at hand. Just like how we are asking their leaders in PF to show us how over $500,000 000 was spent on kariba, an audit. They come back with excuses of rainfall. Ok there is less rain fall but show us how you used our money??. Ehhhh guys, stick to the topic at hand, namely the 500,000 jobs promised by lungu.

  33. HH is not the right person to talk about mining issues.
    1. The present job crisis was never anticipated by anyone including HH, otherwise he would have issued a statement telling government to concentrate on strengthening labour laws and not on mining taxes.
    2. I seem to remember HH telling us not too long ago when the country was debating on mining regime, that he would increase the contribution of the mines to tax revenues. If I don’t understand English forgive me, but my humble understanding was that HH wanted the mines to pay more taxes. I vividly remember this because I asked myself whether I was hearing HH correctly to advocate higher taxes when he was an economist and private businessman. So what is telling us today? That he was wrong or politicking? Well if so say so HH!

    As an Economist he knows fully well that during periods of high unemployment and a poorly performing economy, gov’ts MUST create fake jobs ( even digging holes and filling them again is work).

    In the UK, we have had these types of jobs in most recessions in order to kick start the economy. All sorts of non jobs like zero hour contracts (my employer hasn’t given me any hours since 2013 leading to some thinking I don’t have a job….), in truth these jobs keep the unemployment stats down, but pay under the required living starts wage. It’s not just the gov’t creating…

    • This went on to say, it’s not just the gov’t creating these jobs but primarily big corporations taking advantage of ‘free, slave labour.’ I have been a Lettings Negotiator for Countrywide UK leading Estate agents since 2009 as a Lettings Negotiator (Saturdays), but they can get away with parking your contract.

      Let’s get real, and accept the changes that have come to us and work together in harmony, NOT CREATE, Dissatisfaction with our Gov’t and create an environment of violence.
