    Government please do something about this bad sight. For sure KCM is making alot and yet other other countries are benefiting out of our resources, we saw that documentary on TV this is painful.

    You need to see the road which leads to the mine itself, its pathetic,maybe its the new way of showing that you are now aproaching the open pit because what we have on the roads are beyond potholes its something else,the photo shown above is way better off, SO SAD.

    That is the reality of how Chingola has deteriorated. This is the main street at the town centre. You should see the roads in Nchanga North and Kabundi South townships for a start. Pathetic indeed. Visit Nchanga South and you will cry!! We have cried about roads in Chingola but nothing is happening other than the few roads KCM resurfaced. our MPs have been mute!!

    And it’s not just the roads that have gone to dogs, even the social clubs(apart from golf club)have also been dlapidated. The structures being built are also for lack of a better term pathetic. It’s sad to see that two MP’s from Chingola are actually ministers and nothing is happening. Who can the people of Chingola turn to?

    This is the result of the MMD deliberate policy of letting Copperbelt towns to decay for supporting PF and UPND! In 15 years, CB was against MMD and the MMD leaders did not hide the fact when they publicly said they will be no development projects in the province because they did not support their party.

    The picture is real and was taken from one of the room at bwafwano house. Remember, a new roads in 90 days, The roads have been like that since we voted the PF as our representatives in Chingola. When Mwanawasa was president, we had PF mp’s in Chingola. Now PF is in powerwith the same mps, they have gone to sleep. 2016 is very near, we are fed up. Imagine, how many times did Sata come to Chingola to campaign i a yera. Now he is in power, how many times has he been here. Always travelling abroad. Even Lupiah’s visits have neen msurpassed. We are not fools. tuleloleshafye.

    With the current CNP (Chimbwi No Plan) strategy the country is not going anywhere. Money is not a factor any more we have enough resources to even feed, the aged, street kids and loafers. Ba PF urgently come up with a plan. Sure should we bring in foreign investors to do our roads?

    How much does Nchanga Mine produce. How much goes to the artificial owners (share holders)and how much do the real owners (Zambia) get. What are the annual profits in the Mines and how does Zambia benefit. Minerals are wasting aserts. When the minerals are finished foreigners will laugh the loudest. Lets get maximum benefit and invest in production. Think of a Zambia without copper. We need a policy shift as regards Zambia and its benefit from the mines. It can no longer be business as usual.
