Chipimo predicts massive job cuts in mines

National Restoration Party (NAREP) president Elias Chipimo has predicted massive job cuts in the country’s mining sector.
Mr Chipimo told Qfm News in an interview that this is because of the current economic conditions prevailing in the global economy resulting in low copper prices.
He said the increased cost of production in the mining sector as a result of the PF government’s introduction of new laws and regulations without consulting is another factor that will lead to job cuts in the sector.
Mr Chipimo noted that the combined effect of the PF policies and global the economic conditions are impacting negatively on Zambia’s copper mines.
The NAREP leader said the looming state of affairs is sad noting that instead of more jobs being created, people are expected to lose jobs.
