Riots In Luanshya – Miners Furious With Management.
All hell broke loose earlier today in Luanshya after miners charged up when they discovered their account had only been credited with K900 for their salaries.
The aggravated miners took to the streets and expressed their displeasure towards the way management is running its affairs.
During the climax of the revolt, the angry workers blocked the road from Roan to Mpatamato Township. According to a report, police raided the scene and managed to restore peace and order.
This has just occurred a fortnight after Information Minister Chishimba Kambwili addressed a multitude of miners in the area and assured them they would obtain their full salaries.
Mining fraternities have threatened massive job cuts as a result of the fall of copper prices.
Chishimba Kambwili’s reputation is currently on the line as he is most likely to lose his seat as an MP for Roan constituency.
