Debate continues to rage with the call for a shakeup while others have been pushing for the company to be privatized.

Former Information Minister Chishimba Kambwili joined Patriotic Front Secretary General Davies Mwila on his tour of the Copperbelt province on party mobilization. Kambwili has stayed on the low since his high profile dismissal and has stuck to his word of being available for party activities. He has repeatedly emphasized that he will stay loyal to President Edgar Lungu despite being fired. And Mwila said that the party will weed out some underperforming party functionaries who were responsible for the loss of some local government by-elections. Mwila said that the loss of the Mukuba ward in Kitwe was a sign that the party had gone to sleep after the August 11 elections. He said that the party will not allow their comfort zone be snatched away by the opposition. Mwila is on the Copperbelt as part of the tour for party structures across the country.
