Green party President Peter Sinkamba has charged people on the Copperbelt have not benefited from President Edgar Lungu’s recent visit apart from PF members.
Mr. Sinkamba says the only thing Copperbelt residents benefited from the presidential visit was that during his visit some parts of the Copperbelt were not load shaded.
Mr. Sinkamba states that President Lungu did not address important issues affecting the Zambian people as evidenced from the way he handled issues affecting the miners and Mine owners.
He says President Lungu’s visit was more of a party visit where he was holding meetings with party members on the ground and holding rallies.
And Mr Sinkamba says the manner in which president Lungu handled the issue of retrenchments at Mopani Copper Mines will not work.
He says this is because Mopani Copper Mines is not answerable to the president and government but to its shareholders Glencore International who have given the directive to retrench workers.
