General News Government pays over K1 million to 126 families as compensation for mine...

Government has paid over one million kwacha as compensation to 126 families who were affected by the mine blast in Kitwe’s Nkana west on the Copperbelt province.

Provincial Permanent Secretary Bright Nundwe confirmed the development at a handing over ceremony in Kitwe district.

The compensation follows continuous mine explosions at copper mine slag site commonly known as Black Mountain in Kitwe district which resulted in nearby residential houses getting damaged three years ago.

Mr Nundwe explained that the development attracted the attention of President Edgar Lungu’ who had earlier visited the victims and directed that all the affected families be compensated by government.

Mr Nundwe also advised the beneficiary to use their money wisely by renovating their cracked properties.

Meanwhile beneficiaries have thanked President Lungu for fulfilling his promise to them.

Fostina Chewe said she was proud of the President for making a mere political promise into reality.

And Sampa Chisanga wished the President more life for exhibiting extraordinary care to the people.

  7. WHY is the government paying them when the damanges were caused by known private company? These are some decisions that will land some PSs in prison in case of government change. The president does not sign any where.

  8. On one hand, PF government is busy working for people and on the other, the opposition leader is busy looting the country and exploiting poor people.

  9. This is the stark contrast between the performer and non performer. President Lungu is out there to solve the problems and fulfil the promises he made, while the UPND Alliance is busy spreading Covid19 and death in the country.

  10. @Kalok if you are really that worried about the source of this fund, then you have to rise above poli-tics. You need to show some maturity, I hope you are matured. Why don’t you take some pains to gather information you want? Don’t spend time and money on internet, make yourself useful.

  11. This is called walking the talk. President Lungu had assured to resolve the issues of mine workers and here it is.

  12. Opposition leader needs to learn a lot form President Edgar Lungu. He is living legend who has set many highs in administration and governance.

  13. @No Corruption Zambia I can understand your anguish. This is going to be a biggest problem for your master HH. But don’t worry. His time will also come, may be after another 15 years.

  14. @Tarino Orange instead of wasting time here, criticising ECL, it would be better if you put little ef-forts in explaining why UPND has mobilised 60,000 youths in Lusaka. What are the plans for August 11 and 12? Has HH realised that he can’t win the elections, hence hatching plans to create violence?

  15. Has any of the UPND motor mouths lecturing the world here, read this –
    The kwacha has been appreciating for 4 straight days and now is in the k21 margins.
    The appreciation of the Zambian kwacha is due to improved dollar supply and the positive outlook in terms of forex reserves. Mining activities have increased resulting in increased forex inflows. The country is also exporting agricultural produce after another good harvest. Also expected is an injec-tion of $1.4bn through SDRS into our reserves as countries share $650bn free SDR allocations amid the IMFs plans of enhancing global liquidity. The $1.4bn forex injection through SDRS will push our reserves to over $3.1bn by end of August. Those hoarding the dollar should start selling now. Com-modity prices are expected to start reducing…

  16. It seems that nothing is going right for HH and UPND. He is getting blow after blow. It seems the destiny too, has decided to favour the brave, who is fighting for the people from the front.

  17. This PS needs to have a grip of Ndola, the Police road blocks are just unbearable, coming from Lusaka the other day found one at Indeni, the other at Ndeke turn off, the other one at rail line near airport, the other at Ndola central hospital and the other before Levy Mwanawsa stadium, a foreign dignitary I had in the car even asked if there was a state of emergency, and I said no, this is the normal here

  18. Ndola, the home town of Police road blocks. Town can be mistaken for Mogadishu. Traffic check points everywhere affecting productivity, we need them but not to that advanced level

  19. Just wait even those whose structures were legally demolished because they built on illegal plots will get compensation whether they like it or not. After all elections are 3 weeks away and father Christmas comes every 5 years.
