NKOMBO KACHEMBA, Kitwe
KONKOLA Copper Mines (KCM) has allegedly transferred over 1,000 workers to contractors it has outsourced to manage its business units despite Government issuing a directive to the mining giant to maintain its staff.
The mine denies doing so. Minister of Mines and Minerals Development Christopher Yaluma recently issued a directive to KCM not to transfer over 900 workers to contractors. Despite the directive, the mining giant has gone ahead with its plans and outsourced over 1,000 workers to contractors.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
