Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili says he is disappointed with the slow pace at which Luanshya Copper Mines is handling the case involving over 1,600 miners at Baluba Mine who were sent on forced leave last year.

Dr Kambwili has wondered why only 43 miners have so far been recalled while over one thousand are still waiting.

He added that despite the copper prices selling at over six thousand dollars per tonne, the Chinese owned mining firm has still maintained the low pace at which it is recalling workers.

Speaking when he addressed some former miners in Luanshya on Wednesday, Dr. Kambwili disclosed that he was dispatching a team of twelve former miners to Lusaka to meet Vice President Inonge Wina and Minister of Mines Chistopher Yaluma over the matter.

The Roan Member of Parliament hopes that once the former miners meet the Vice President and the Mines Minister, a lasting solution will be found.

Last month, Luanshya Copper Mines Spokesperson Sydney Chileya told ZNBC News that 150 miners from the one thousand six hundred miners sent on forced leave will be recalled by the end of this month.

Mr. Chileya said 43 miners were recalled in the first week of February and the remaining miners would be recalled in groups until they reach 150.

He said the decision to recall the miners was aimed at reviving the slag treatment plant where Luanshya Copper Mines has pumped in three million dollars.

  1. Why not take the ex-miners on fat Albert? You have made enough money and so can manage to pay them if the pace at which the mine is recalling them is slow..

  3. Trying hard to be relevant, your time is long gone bwana. Accept and move on. You thought you were untouchable, now you are seeing the real suffering that you and your fake party has brought on the masses. You can no longer go to LCM and threaten them anymore because they will sue you and leave you bankrupt. You are just a commoner now, such is life. Sending a group of miners to Lusaka to the vice President and mines minister, what has happened? You can’t even call Yaluma today because you are embarrassed.Get a life.

  4. This man is around! i almost forgot him.Its cheaper for CK to call the Veep and Yaluma rather than sending those miners who will not even pass through the security desk.
