KONKOLA Copper Mines (KCM) in Chingola has expressed willingness to resettle 86 families whose houses have developed cracks due to blasting from its Nchanga open pit says Nchanga Member of Parliament (MP) Chali Chilombo.

ZANIS reports that Mr Chilombo said KCMs’ gesture to resettle the affected families is on humanitarian grounds as the problem was inherited from the previous mine investor, Anglo American.

This situation affecting the families in Nyanji Township in Nchanga constituency has dragged for the last 15 years.

The Nchanga law maker explained that the mine has since written to Chingola Municipal council (CMC) requesting for allocating land where the houses units will be built.

He added that costing of each housing unit had been concluded but a detailed account of the report had not yet been submitted to his office.

He has since appealed to residents to exercise patience with the process and assured residents that they will be relocated.

T

he affected houses where sold off to sitting tenants after the privatization of Nchanga mine.

However, over a period of time the structures have experienced damages due to mining activities among them blasting and ground movement.
