I WRITE to applaud Patriotic Front Government halt is the continuous importation and apparent use of imported copper concentrate from Chile by KCM.
This will go a long way in safeguarding the lives and lifespan of Chingola residents and Zambians at large given the arsenic attribute of the said concentrate.
This also proves that the Patriotic Front Government is a listening Government given the urgency and importance they have attached to the said importation.
KCM can now think of engaging other local mines to beef up their smelter if scarcity was a sincere reason for their importation.
DR Congo equally has non-arsenic copper concentrate KCM can think of buying than putting the lives of Zambians at stake.
