Minister Musukwa, Mopani lies exposed

Minister Musukwa, Mopani lies exposed

MUSUKWA IS LYING MOPANI HAS MOVED THE OFFICE TO SOUTH AFRICA, TOP 25 SUPPLIERS AND CONTRACTORS AT MOPANI 2016-2019.

Dear Editor.

Mr. Musukwa Richard (Mines Minister) should NOT think someone or Suppliers and Contractors in Zambia are trying to throw mud at his white suite and shirt. Contrary, they have NO political agenda and this is not propaganda but facts.

Local Indigenous Suppliers and Contractors to mines in Zambia just need the following;

A fair share of Business slice from our Local Mines compared to Foreign Companies and foreign Owned companies but resident in Zambia.
Enactment of Local Indigenous content for Mining companies in Zambia because we believe this is the only way Zambians will get a fair share of Business , We want him to be patriotic like the name of his party and not put his selfish interests first and ahead of the Citizen as a leader.

Instruct Mopani to reverse the Decision of awarding tenders from Johannesburg South Africa and bring back the FPA buying office back to kitwe.

In short, they need his help and the help of the president of Zambia.
Can the Minister deny that he has no Company registered and doing Business with the mines? Let him try, we will publish the name, the orders and his phone conversation soliciting for business from Supply managers in almost all mines. This is conflict of interest and that is why he is not able to act in favour of Zambian Suppliers and Contractors nor been Patriotic
The minister says, Mopani has NOT moved the Buying Office. Facts are that Mopani has moved the Long term Contracts Office for Goods and Commodities from Kitwe to Johannesburg. See below the tenders that has been issued and adjudicated from Johannesburg. Local Indigenous Suppliers and Contractors in Zambia, do not be blinded by the minister, you will lose out or you have lost out already.

Does, the minister (Musukwa) with due respect think Indigenous Local Zambian Suppliers and Contractors are benefiting enough from the Mining Business available? Let him see the List of Top 25 – 30 Suppliers and Contractors at Mopani from 2016 to 2019 as an example. The evidence is overwhelming. These are facts on finger tips. How can some deny this?
Is the minister of mines denying that Local Zambian suppliers and Contractors are being denied registration whilst foreign companies mainly from South Africa are been registered at Mopani? We can publish a list in the past three to four months. Again, these are facts that can be verified.

Its absolutely ridiculous and a shame for the minister to defend his position and yet only foreign companies mostly benefits from Business at Mopani and most Mines in Zambia. As Minister of Mines, he should be doing something specifically favorable to Zambians than just denying the truth. And Does the president of Zambia get this information?

As Zambians, we just need the Government to enact a mining Indigenous local Content Law that should force these multinational companies to partner or form Joint ventures with Zambian companies and individuals. The ministry of Labour should also localize the position of Chief commercial Officer, Commercial managers, Supply Managers and Head supply In Zambia by law. ZICA and ministry of Finance Must also enact a law to localize the CFO position because Supply reports to CFO in most Mining companies. Then the Ministry of Home Affairs must also stop issuing work permits and Business permits to Suppliers and Contractors unless they show that they have a Zambian Partner and active shareholder with NOT less than 25% in such a Company.
Zambians, we are too docile, we need to act and wake up. How can we be dominated in our back yard, our homes, our own Country by South Africans, Indian and Peruvians?
Secondly, it is true, we want the Zambian Buying office at Mopani to be fully kitwe functional, locally based fully controlled by local professionals. Zambians did not steal the money from Mopani or Glencore. South African management did by forming South African Companies and inflating prices to take money into their pockets back home for too long. They do not even pay tax here in Zambia. How can we develop? Money goes to Johannesburg, Mumbai and shanghai to build the best infrastructures and we only remain with IFILONGOMA (pits and trenches curving).

This is why you can see that the TOP 25 companies are Foreign dominated by South African and Peruvians. It is because they have positioned themselves well to beneficiate themselves. They have put their own people in those positions whilst Zambian mgt is fighting one another. Are Zambians this blind and stupid?
Those foreigners like Sneha Deepthi (Indian) must go back to Mumbai. Susana Chequin Must also go back to Peru. The South Africans must also reduce; we cannot have them in huge numbers at Mopani like they are, they favour their fellow South Africans. Reduce even Chinese to reasonable numbers. Zambians Must take charge of these Positions. We have too many graduates roaming the streets without Job.

Suppliers and Contractors, our Copperbelt economy is crushed because of these selfish people (Indians, South Africans and Peruvians) and the Government especially a Minister who cannot work or be patriotic like his party name. If they Government do not act, let us make sure we take away the votes. Let us try someone else. It is too much. Zambian Business for Zambians. Zambian lives matters too!

Find hereto the Top 25 companies ranking by earnings performance per year. 99% of Top 25 to 50 Companies in Mopani accounting for 90% of annual expenditure on both Goods, commodities and Services are foreign owned companies. These are facts and the information accurate. If the Mopani FPA buying office is left in Johannesburg, as it has already been re-located, this expenditure percentage will go to 98%. Copperbelt will be a dead economy. South Africa (Johannesburg), Peru and Indian cities will be the only beneficiaries. We need to stop this situation.
