Some professionals that lived abroad renounced their citizenship and assumed foreign nationality.
This appears to be the case of a Zambian national and mining expert Dr. Pius Kasolo who assumed South African citizenhip in the 90s.
To this effect OPERATION Young Vote (OYV) has asked the Zambia Consolidated Copper Mines-Investment Holdings(ZCCM-IH) Board to review the appointment of its chief executive officer Dr Pius Kasolo over his alleged South African nationality.
OYV wants to leave his post to allow for independent investigations and to give Kasolo time to normalize his citizenship or reclaim it now that the country’s constitution allows dual citizenship.
But Dr Kasolo says this is an old issue that is only meant to bring him down.
On October 5, 2017, the Operation Young Vote (OYV) wrote Minister of Home Affairs in a letter referenced “Proof of Dr Pius Kasolo’s South African citizenship”.

First Quantam Minerals, the owners of Kantanshi and Sentinel (Kalumbila) externalised $1.4billion in 2007.
ZCCM-IH owns 20% and this was done without their authority.
Mediation attempts to recover the money failed so Kasolo took FQM to court and also sued the powerful directors in person.
Kasolo took similar action against Vedanta who have since paid $100million
