Minister of Mines Richard Musukwa says government will soon announce a permanent solution to the liquidation process at Konkola Copper Mines – KCM.
Mr. Musukwa says government does NOT desire to prolong the liquidation process but wants to guarantee operations and secure thousands of jobs at the mine.
And Finance Minister Bwalya Ng’andu says the Copperbelt Province is key to the national economy because of its huge contribution to the treasury in form of taxes.
