Dear Editor Please let the powers that be quickly intervene on the happening at Copperbelt Solid Waste Management. Workers have gone for 4 months without salaries. The Managing Director is not concerned because he is busy abusing the little resources available. He tells people that he doesn’t care whether people get paid or not. At one time hired a vehicle which the company paid K23, 000 for only 10 days yet the workers are not paid. We hear that he has kept some money to pay himself if they don’t renew his contract which expired on 31st May. He gets advances every week which is not recovered. We are worried the company is going to close and some of us have nowhere to go, we are going to suffer. Please let the powers that be help us before we die Withhold identity The post Letter: Four Months With No Pay At Copperbelt Solid Waste Management appeared first on Zambia Reports.

MMD National Secretary Raphael Nakacinda has advised fellow politicians to be factual and stop ridiculing institutions of governance for political expedience. Nakacinda, who was responding to a question relating to the statement issued by FDD Deputy National Secretary Antonio Mwanza for accusing MPs of stealing from Zambians with their emoluments when he featured on Pan African radio, said it was important to be factual so as not to bring institutions of governance to ridicule. He said there is need to balance politics with facts. “When we are dealing with matters that have to do with our institutions of governance such as the judiciary, parliament and even the executive you need to be factual because you do not want to bring these institutions into ridicule just for political expedience as it will undermine the integrity of these institutions. “I think Antonio Mwanza was a little bit overzealous when he played to the gallery and started throwing out figures that he had not verified. I think that he over stretched the norminal figures. He needs to balance his politicking with facts,” he said. He lamented the lack of seriousness by Zambians when discussing national issues saying it has become a cancer that needs to be amputated. “We need as Zambians to be more serious on how we debate these issues. I think this is becoming a cancer across the board, as politicians we are invited to radio for example, we start to pop out whatever views some of which are misplaced, some of it is total misinformation. “People are saying things they have not researched, worse still when you open the phone line some people will call without even listening to what we are discussing just because they want to hear themselves speak on radio,” he said.
