Mineworkers Union of Zambia President Wisdom Ngwira has challenged Government to quickly outline future plans for both Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) and Mopani Copper Mines (MCM) in order to restore the productivity and profitability of the two mines.
Speaking in an interview Mr Ngwira has charged that a new investor must be sought despite Vedanta expressing interest to dialogue and invest over 1.5 Billion US dollars into the mine.
“As a Unions, to be fair enough we can not trusted vedanta, we want an investor who will invest something that will trickle benefits from the employees to the community, so Government should consider looking into this issue,” he said.
He has also urged government to prevent Vedanta resources from investing into the mines because they cannot be trusted.
