    Let not Barrick mine cheat our government especially our president mr sata, so many contracting companies have been affected, ie Hitachi, Lumwana plant hire. Barrick is terminating zambians employment and only securing jobs for south africans (Boers). Typical example is Hitachi which has made all incompetent Boers cross over to Barrick leaving our brothers in the cold. We voted for PF to come & clean the mess created by MMD. Where is mr Shamenda or do we need to go straight to the President for help?

    Do what South Africans do to others all jobs first priority Zambian citizenship or permanent residence other wise Zamboers shall continue to rule in this newly found colony whilst Zambian skilled manpower and professionals shall play second class citizens in our own country.Remember they finished Botswana, they finished South Africa thousands have lost jobs because of their greed watch out Zambia also see who is supervisor and holding foreman or manager positions.This rings a bell.Kwacha,Smell the coffee.
