Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) has finally agreed to resettle 86 families of Nyanji area in Chingola whose houses have been cracking for over 20 years due to mining activities at Nchanga Mine.

Nchanga Member of Parliament Chali Chilombo has disclosed that his office has received correspondence from KCM that the firm is now in the process of resettling the residents once it gets land from the Chingola Municipal Council.

Speaking at a Patriotic Front Interactive Forum in Chingola yesterday, Mr. Chilombo said a full Council meeting of the Chingola Municipal Council is expected to be held this week to allocate land to KCM where the Nyanji residents will be resettled.

Meanwhile, Mr. Chilombo has disclosed that in the Private Member’s Motion he is expected to move in Parliament soon, he will ask the house to compel KCM to explain why it has put the Konkola Deep Mine and the Nchanga Open Pit on hold.

Mr. Chilombo said he will also ask parliament to compel the mining giant to explain what corporate social responsibility programs the company has apart from building a one by three classroom block.
