Forensic-Audit On Mines To Be Conducted
The Government of The Republic of Zambia will constitute a team of experts to conduct a forensic audit on the mines to ascertain the impact of low copper prices on the international market and power deficit on their operations.
Minister of Mines and Minerals Development Christopher Yaluma said in an interview yesterday that a forensic audit of the mines is necessary to enable Government to establish the impact of low copper prices and the power deficit.
Mr. Yaluma said Government is sympathetic to the citizens, who have lost jobs in the mines and that it is doing everything possible to keep the miners in employment.
“We are putting up a team to conduct a forensic audit on all the mines to assess the impact of low copper prices and power deficit on their operations. We know that they are facing those challenges, but we need to do our own audit,” Mr. Yaluma said.
