Dismissed Patriotic Front Deputy Chairperson of elections Kelvin Bwalya Fube is not going down with a fight accusing superior Jean Kapata of being pressured to fire him. Fube, better known as KBF, was dropped as PF chairperson of elections for having issued media statements without the blessing of the party. KBF came down heavily in opposing the contracting of a South African company Parkrite to man all the public parking spaces in the City of Lusaka. He argued that the contract would deprive youth feeding off income in bus stations of income. However, Kapata has come out strongly showing KBF the door. While accepting his dismissal KBF said that Kapata had initially been in agreement with him but backtracked after being pressure by ‘higher forces’. The tricky natured lawyer has however been linked with an undercover operation working league with Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili to destabilize the party.

The government is slowly moving to the reality that something must be done about the infamous Black Mountain in Kitwe. Some youths publicly known as jerabos that has traditionally fed off the Black Mountain staged a demonstration with some of them arrested. The Black Mountain is one of the old heaps of waste rock which piled in Kitwe’s Wusakile Township by the ZCCM before privatisation. In 2011 information has surfaced that the PF Government had decided to sell the dump site to Chinese investors who extract copper from the waste. Ownership of the mine has been a subject of controversy with the matter having been taken to court. Mines Minister Christopher Yaluma said that government is awaiting the opinion of the Attorney General. The youth reckon they have a right to be formally bequeathed ownership and control of the copper laced mountain. Government has previously toyed with the idea of leasing it out but the presence of illegal beneficiaries makes the subject highly sensitive.
