  1. Kkkk! It’s fitting pieces of the jigsaw puzzle, one piece after the other. Soon we’ll have a clear picture of what’s happening

  2. A prelude to a Vedanta take over. You have HH and Co. trusting one Nair more than any black Zambian as provisional liquidator. Why? It looks like for UPND all black Zambians are untrustworthy. Therefore, it is better to have one Nair be provisional liquidator because such a one cannot be found to be wanting.

  3. Is she Zambian is not a smart question. We should only care whether she is competent and will act in Zambia’s interests. As far as we know ECL is Zambian bone and blood. How did that work out for you?

  4. WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE WHETHER SHE IS ZAMBIAN OR NOT
    HONESTY AND ACCOUNTABILTY AND TRANSPARENCY IS ALL THAT IS REQUIRED
    LETS NOT GET PETTY ABOUT THIS

  5. Some zambian indians are more patriotic than some indigenous……….and very astute with money

    While some of our indigenous have stealing on their minds 24/7………

    Let’s hope she is one of them………

  7. This appointment is an insult to indigenous Zambian experts

    To pick an Indian to perform such a pivotal role

    A Zambian can not be appointed to any prominent role in India

    What’s wrong with us

  9. THOUGH THE QUESTION AS TO WHETHER SHE IS A ZAMBIAN OR NOT IS NOT NECECESSARY LET ME CLEAR THE AIR. CELINE IS A ZAMBIAN. SHE WAS BORN IN LIVINGSTONE AND GREW UP THERE. SHE HAS NEVER BEEN TO INDIA. SHE ONLY KNOWS ZAMBIA AS HER COUNTRY. AFTER HER FORM V IN LIVINGSTONE SHE JOINED ZAMBIA TEXTILE AS AN ASSISTANT ACCOUNTANT. SHE LATER WENT TO UNZA TO DO MEDICINE BUT WITHDREW DUE TO A MINOR CHALLENGE. SHE LATER RETURNED TO UNZA TO DO LAW. SHE IS MARRIED TO A BLACK ZAMBIAN. MOST OF HER FRIENDS ARE BLACK ZAMBIANS. SHE IS 100% ZAMBIAN AT HEART. THAT IS WHY SHE WAS EMPLOYED BY MINISTRY OF JUSTICE BECAUSE SHE IS A ZAMBIAN. WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS COMEPETENCY AND NOT THE OTHER TALK.

  10. Yaba what is this now?? Just trying to piece this together….this smells like operation “giving it back to vendata” she has ties with the former owners maybe.

  11. Gibson… No explanation would ever suffice for midwits… If the issue isn’t one is not Zambian, then it is they are not of the right tribe, don’t have the right experience, don’t have the right qualification, are the wrong age etc… the circular list of grievances goes on.

  12. Much as I don’t ascribe to racism, I would like remind some of our colleagues here on LT who were always opposed to appointments of Indian Zambians to post saying A ZAMBIAN CANNOT BE APPOINTED IN INDIA TO ANY POSITION, A ZAMBIAN CANNOT BE ALLOWED ETC IN INDIA. In a nutshell why do we change our stance?

  13. Surely how can you ask if she is Zambian ,,,the profile clearly states she worked in the Ministry of Justice. Very good appointment…women have more to lose when they misbehave in such appointment unlike Lazy Lungu’s thieves.

    “Much as I don’t ascribe to racism, I would like remind some of our colleagues here on LT who were always opposed to…..”

    This might sound impossible for some to comprehend , but………..

    If this woman was a business, I would object, why………?

    Because most none indegionius businesses externalise profits…………

    Now this is just a position to do work for zambia, by a Zambian let’s use all availed talent to do work for zambia………

  20. This is one simple thing Lazy Lungu couldnt do as the crooks were in control..it was state capture..can you imagine one time the real KZ and Amos Chanda were on the Liquidation team.

  21. Deja Vu – I think you should focus on extracting information from your drunk mates at the bar!!

  22. More decent than that PF thug. Even beautiful. Sanity will return to KCM, another quality decision from UPND. Just clap you August 12 bruised victims

  23. Tarino don’t ever mention my name. You crazy upnd cadre. Continue singing praises for your fellow t0nga leader while it is clear for all to see that he has failed. Come 2026 ECL will be back. Mark my words. Zambians are watching. Remember our strongholds won’t hesitate to give back the votes to pf..

  24. A ZAMBIAN HAS ZERO CHANCE OF BEING EMPLOYED IN SUCH A HIGH PROFILE JOB IN INDIA.
    ASK VEDANTA WHO WOULDN’T EMPLOY ZAMBIANS AS CEOs AT KCM.

  25. YOUR NAME WILL ALWAYS BE MENTIONED >>
    BUT NEVER IN A GOOD LIGHT MOST ON HERE HAVE SEEN THROUGH YOUR NIAVETY IN BLOGGING
    AND THOSE WITH THE SLIGHTEST KNOWLEDGE OF PYSCHOLOGICAL BEHAVIOR CAN SEE RIGHT THROUGH YOU
    FOR WHO YOU REALLY ARE >>
    YOU CAN KEEP PLUGGING AWAY AT YOUR PF >> WHAT STRONG HOLDS ?? THEY ARE FADING AWAY ON A DAILY BASIS
    SOON TO BE BURIED WITH UNIP >>

  26. It’s done and dusted. Bloomberg has reported that they have reached an agreement. Nipano tuli

  27. @KaizerZulu, your comment that implies all Zambians are black. You see now why you lost. PF is the gift that keeps on giving stupidity. I am intrigued to see what you will gravitate to at next election cycle cause your PF will be defunct. Gone. Relegated to the sewage.

  28. ZAMBIA FIRST or is it Zambian Citizen who was thick as porridge and never been further than Nakonde…how many Zambians do you know in India? Really laughable….beating about the bush why you never complained when she had a high profile job at MOJ..go and check her CV she was Principal Legal Officer Ministry of Justice and Board Member at Zambia Information and Communication Technology Authority. Isn’t Guy Scott a Zambian?

  29. Hiechh hiechh’s concubines resurfacing and raking in. Inferiority complex he suffers from this mistake. Zambia bagoleka mulelola.

  30. She also worked for Stanchart Zambia for nine years before resigning as legal advisor in 2015. Very astute. She can’t easily be cowed. Her stint in international law, banks and agreements will make her agreeable to the post as Vedanta deals with various creditors and liquidated debts. Remember that staggering electricity dollar bill owed to CEC?

  31. Some people like discussing trivia than substance when it matters most! The chameleons will one day deny the likesof Zayelo being Zambian! Celine, Go girl! You also represent the girl child!

  32. We have tried the Zambian Milingo
    And we have been beaten so lets
    Try the Zambian with a different
    Race.Zambians are looking for
    Betterment of KCM by a competent person.

  33. On 23 March 2022, Lusaka Times reported this:

    “Official Receiver Natasha Kalimukwa has taken over the running of the affairs of Konkola Copper Mines following the resignation of Milingo Lungu as provisional Liquidator for KCM.”
    Our google search revealed that Natasha Kalimukwa, a bona fide Zambia, is also a lawyer by profession. The question that therefore arises is why Madam Kalimukwa should be sidelined in preference for Celine Nair. Is Natasha Kalimukwa not good enough or less Zambian to be replaced by one Celine Nair? UPND should explain this to Zambians.

  34. So the problem was really the liquidator, not the liquidation.

    “Two legs bad, four legs good”.

  35. What a political party this Chi PF tribal and racist party is. They see everything in tribe and now race…..My prayer to the almighty God that PF never comes back to power – NEVER AGAIN….
