The PF In North Western Wants Investor At Gold Mine In Mwinilunga

Patriotic Front North Western Province Chairman Jackson Kungo has called for the operationalisation of Kasenseli Gold mine to help curb illegal mining activities.

Kungo said Government needs to urgently identify an investor to start mining activities at Kasenseli.

He said operationalisation of Kasenseli Gold Mine will see a reduction in illegal activities that are leading to arrests.

Kungo’s comments follow the arrest of two people who were found engaging in the illegal mining activities.

He said the move will also ensure that locals are given an opportunity to benefit from the mine as opposed to people from other parts of the country.

Kungo has indicated that the earlier the investor is identified the more relief for the people of Mwinilunga who are still watching from a distance.

He has further called on police to protect the mine site as per the presidential directive so as not to allow any illegalities.

Kungo wondered how illegal miners are accessing the mine area.

    ONLY UPND CAN BRING MINES IN NORTH WESTERN NOT PF

      Ck you are rubbish and foolish to say UPND is the only party that Will bring investors to gold mines. Ck you and your UPND go to hell . already the President of UPND is the one who has brought more misery to most miners in Zambia. Ask me how this misery. This president of UPND by then he was just an ordinary businessman I don’t know how he was called to be engaged and take part in privatising the mines .after the sale he emerged from poverty and became ba Mwine living miners in poverty. Him has his money in investment making billions of kwacha profits. But he had to let miners benefit to be kept in trust not making any interest . then how can someone with five senses trust such a man to bring investors in Zambia . please let us think twice . Aba ba HH has already failed miners in the copperbelt . only a person who has no benefits put in trust fund can say HH is a good man who thinks but as for me who knows what he has done to me and other fellow miner are regretting. Only people like chilundika are able to support him because he eats from HH pocket .for sure HH is not a good man. Even his cow heards cry the way he treats them . if you remember what late president Mr sata said, he said HH is under five no experience . we don’t want experiments experimenting peoples who done more than good to miner. This HH has wounded me that I will not forgotten. If taking law in someone’s hand is allowed I would have taken but thank God he cools me and good laws put in place. No tit for tat .this also saying HH is a good man .this is foolish with your UPND.

    Just from the new vehicles pf cadres drive around, it is clear the gold has been looted while locals watch from a distance. It was so on Mukula. In the name of a ban but mukula looting continued.

    Do we really need an investor to mine our Gold? I say no we don’t need a foreign investor. The government need to let zambia company to do the mining so that the money made should be used to service the debt we have accumulated as a country. That is my comment about the issue.

    Is there even enough gold deposits to call for an investor? What happened to the soldiers that rushed to seal off the area upon hearing the news about gold..Just allow the villagers to help themselves if they know how gold looks like or they will be swindled further by cadres.
