Government says no one should conduct exploration works at the infamous black mountain in Kitwe until further notice. Minister of Mines Christopher Yaluma says both Nkana Alloy the owners of the mountain and the youth who have been given ten percent shares in the mountain should follow his directive.
Mr. Yaluma says Nkana Alloy is supposed to have a meeting with him to work on modalities how the youth and the community will benefit from the mountain among other things.
He told ZNBC News that he has asked the Minister of Home Affairs to deploy police officers from Kanfisa to man the mountain.
Mr. Yaluma has urged parties not to fight but wait for modalities of operations to be put in place before they can start exploration works.
