Government will not have a direct intervention but will ensure that there is no disruption of the economy on the Copperbelt following an impasse between, Konkola Copper Mines and the Copperbelt Energy Cooperation.
There have been calls from a cross section of society that Government should Nationalize the Mine in view of providing a lasting solution to the challenges that have the potential to negatively affect workers and local Suppliers.
According to the National Democratic Congress K-C-M is facing financial challenges hence it is equally failing to settle debt owed to the Copprebelt energy cooperation which is said to be about 40 million United States dollars.
But Presidential Spokesperson Amos Chanda before going to china last week told journalists that the only involvement by President Edger Lungu was to call on both parties to reach a compromise.
