HH wants operationalisation of Kasenseli, Lubambe, Kalengwa mines

By NATION REPORTER 

PRESIDENT Hakainde Hichilema has directed for the immediate operationalisation of Kasenseli Gold Mine, Kalengwa and Lubambe mines, Government Spokesperson Cornelius Mweetwa has said.

Mr Mweetwa said during the Cabinet meeting this week, the head of State directed that the mines need to start operating without fail.

He said, the President feels that when the mines start operating, the country will start mobilising enough resources that will help in stabilising the Kwacha which has continued to depreciate.

Mr Mweetwa, who is also Information and Media Minister and Choma Central Member of Parliament said, President Hichilema wants increased mineral production as this would benefit Zambians. “So, Copperbelt and North-Western provinces are becoming the hive of mining activities. What we are doing as Government is progress. For us we want things to start happening in the country so that lives of the people change for the better,” Mr Mweetwa said.

And Mr Mweetwa disclosed that next week, President Hichilema will launch the commencement for the construction of the Lusaka-Ndola road project.

He said the project once it begins, a number of jobs will be created as well as business opportunities for the local people.

“Now some of the people talk as if they don’t live in Zambia, things are happening but they continue talking about negatives that the current Cabinet is putting Zambia in economic genocide,” he said.

Mr Mweetwa said the government will serve the people fairly regardless of their political affiliation.
