Movement for National Transformation (MNT) president Daniel Shimunza has called on government to seriously consider re-introducing windfall tax in view of the recent happenings in the mining sector.

Shimunza has however, commended Mopani Copper Mines and the Copperbelt Energy Corporation for reaching an agreement leading to the resumption of full power supply to the mine.
