JUST IN CASE YOU MISSED THIS ONE
WHO ARE THE BENEFICIARIES OF GOLD AT KASENSELI???🤔🤷‍♂️

FROM RAGS TO RAGS

Having discovered gold in the Kasenseli area of Mwinilunga in 2019, the youth who did so would be entitled to think that the rags to riches fairy-tale stories were now about to become a reality for them, but over two years down the line, they are still in their rags.

About 15 youths are said to have discovered the gold in Kasenseli area in Chibwika’s chiefdom on June 18, 2019.

While a discovery of such nature should have meant instant millionaires in town, it has not been the case for the youths.

“We are shocked about what is happening because we the people who discovered the gold have not been considered for jobs at the mine and we have not benefited anything https://enews.daily-mail.co.zm/welcome/home

  1. Greed of a few people has taken over the mine from true owners.

    Is this not obvious. How can outsiders claim ownership to a land which for years belonged to the community.

    Sadly the institutions making and entering into agreements on behalf of our citizens are not doing a good job.

    Clearly the community needed to have shareholding to the mine. The investors to the mine needed to partner with the local community company with a reasonable shareholding ration. For instance the bare minimum is 51% – 49% in favor of the local company. And preferrably 60% – 40% in favor of the local company.

    Rational is the mine owners contribute more, which is the whole mine assets. While the investors contribute a fraction.

    It’s only fair the we start to use the assets we have to our advantage and government can help us to achieve this.

  2. These are resources that Government needs to look into quickly – the Zambian people have been on the losing end left, right and centre, it is time for change, and for communities to benefit.
