  1. So what? The majority of Zambians cannot make ends meet. Mines are for foreign entities and poverty is for Zambians at things currently stand.


  2. Surely how many years has this dumb thing Mines Minister Christopher Yaluma been attending this indaba or talkshop??


  3. It happens every year this show and all foreign investors know where the mines and minerals are so they don’t need a public servant telling them about mining, for these public servants its just a free shopping holiday and per diam’s and free food and drinks, nothing else.
