Economics Association of Zambia President Dr Lubinda Haabazoka has called on those involved who were involved in the privatization of mine assets should apologize.
Dr Haabazoka observed that the privatization of Zambia’s mines was done exploitatively.
Writing on his Facebook page, Dr Haabazoka who was attempted to make a veiled attack on opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema who worked as a Consultant to the Zambia Privatization Agency said the sale of mine assets was unpatriotic.
The EAZ President claimed that those that helped sell the mines are swimming in money leaving others to solve the problems they created.
“Each and every individual regardless of the role they played in Privatization of Zambia’s mines should apologize to the nation immediately,” Dr Haabazoka said.
“Privatization of Zambia’s mines at very exploitative terms is the highest level of unpatriotism,” he charged.
“20 years after the damage, some are swimming in money when others are solving problems created!!! 21000 job looses???”
