Bushiri Mines Workers Go 3 Months Without Pay

Workers at Malawian born Shepherd Bushiri, Bushiri Mining Limited in Lufwanyama District on the Copperbelt Province have gone three months without pay.

And the workers have expressed fear they may not get their gratuity as their one year contract come to and on the 31st of this month.

The workers who are not unionised have since reported their grievance to the labour office in Kitwe to mediate as they demand for their three months salary arrears.

Representative Simon Katimba said have been giving excuses when ever approached on their outstanding salary arrears.

He said managed had assured that they would be paid in two weeks but has gone mute and that all offices have remained closed on site.

“We are worried because when we went to check we discovered that the offices were locked, so we are not sure if we will be paid because even when we call they are not taking our calls, yes we reported the matter to the labour office so they help us get our money,” He stated.

When contacted Board of Directors Secretary Douglas Moyo said management is aware of the salaries it owes to employees and is still sourcing for funds.

However, Mr Moyo was quick to mention that the matter was before the labour office and it was being attended to.

“Yes I am aware of that challenge, just to let you know how bad the situation is we have also suspended operations..we are attending to the matter I can’t say much on this issue because we are addressing it through the labour office,” Mr Moyo said.

  12. The political prophet

    Bushiri and uebert angel are masonic organised fraudsters .
    All the profits from that mine have been channeled to uebert angel(the sow owner of the mine as Bushiri is just covering up for his spiritual father)to buy properties in Europe for business(eg he bought land where they plan to set up housing apartments,he also recently signed some deal in france)and also bought sports cars.
    It pretty a shame that these guys boasts to be wealthy yet can not afford to pay their mine workers.
    You see them giving away expensive cars,but the truth is those are initiation gifts into their masonic/iluminatee occult membership.
    If hes got genuine money he cant fail to pay the workers.
