  1. If they can’t pay let them surrender the property to ZCCM in exchange for the owed money. And ensure a proper inspection of installations is dutifully done.

  2. Let the blood suckers just pay as ruled. These chaps have always taken us for granted as they suck the profits out of the country without repercussions.
    Congrats ZCCM IH.
