Lusaka Province Minister, Bowman Lusambo,

Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has issued a seven day ultimatum to a Lusaka based Chinese company for failure to adhere to labour laws.

Longlihua a company specialised in the manufacturing of iron sheets and ceiling boards has been paying its workers as low as K25 per day and with no proper protective clothing.

This came to light when Mr. Lusambo paid an impromptu visit to the company.

And the Minister has warned that failure to respect the labour laws is a serious offense and it shall not be taken lightly by government.

  1. Fundraising is in high gear… Watch what happens after the seventh day – NOTHING. Longlihua will be in existence even longer with even worse labor practices.

  2. Lusaka Times is compromised by UPND.
    How come they removed a story that appeared this morning on Moono Saying “its embarrassing that India donated rice”. This story backfired in their own face and the reaction condemned the kind of politics the UPND is doing.

  3. Yes I also condemned the Dishonourable Moono. I said that this is one situation where it’s better to keep quiet, but UPND bwatas all the time thus getting a net vote of negative.
    And LT are taking sides.

  4. He just went there to buy roofing sheets. These antics are just to ensure that he gets them for free or at least a good discount.

  5. Does our government have it’s own lawyers?

    Government lawyers are qualified solicitors and barristers who act on the behalf of and give legal advice to government ministers and administrative staff. Entry can be competitive but many government lawyers get a sense of satisfaction from providing a public service.

    “At their best however, lawyers have played leading roles in bringing about much needed change in society. Examples are the role of law in ending slavery and racial discrimination, bringing about consumer protection and promoting justice and equality.”
