Dangote workers go on strike, after Lungu says they are well paid

Workers at Dangote Cement plant have gone on strike demanding better pay.
The workers who are paid between K800 and K1200 basic salaries also want Dangote to allow them to join labour unions, or create their own.
Dangote employees about 850 workers.

When he was campaigning in Ndola last week, president Edgar Lungu said that Dangote pays its workers very well. It seems the statement from Lungu has triggered the strikes as workers are annoyed by the statement by Lungu who is supposed to protect their interests.

    The CEO himself and other expatriates like Ismat and Victor are fold abusing zambians with insults and detaining zambians after 17 hours and they boast that the zambian government is in dangote’s pocket. Shamenda up to now is still very very fast asleep. Indians are not good people to work with and if the CEO is not careful he will find himself in hot soup. Saudi

    Watchdog is not a liar you are just an ignorant PF Cader just like your Lungu. The price of cement is cheap because Dangate pays the workers cheaply.

    The people around the president are misleading him with false information for them to continue eating as usual Cement is cheap at dangote how does he expect workers to be paid more than what the company is realizing. They have made him look disorganized they forced him to be on that seat, himself confessed to have had no vision for this country because they wanted to continue eating that is why they had him on the seat. Do you think all leaders who have left him are empty vessels. Ingombe illede you never grew up with you grand mother or father to read between lines when some one is talking do you think workers at dangote did not hear what the President said. Cement yes is cheap but how much does it cost for some to have 3 meals a day, him has made k23m already and it works out to be business as usual even if some poor people stay for days without food

    LUNGU HAS ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE ON ISSUES OF GOVERNANCE. LUNGU IS A SERIOUS DANGER TO OUR COUNTRY. HIS MOUTH DIARRHOEA CAN PUT OUR COUNTRY ON FIRE. HIS IS FOND OF MAKING NON-RESEARCHED STATEMENTS WHICH ALWAYS TURN OUT TO BE FAKE. DANGOTE WORKERS SHOULD MARCH TO STATE HOUSE AND BEAT UP LUNGU.

    Watchdogs you’re liars. Lungu didn’t say dangote workers are well paid. He said dangote has managed to bring down the price of cement. Ubufi mwenu won’t make your preferred candidate win. Pabwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaato chabe.
