Govt intervenes in Nkomeshya’s mines wrangle

By ADRIAN MWANZA

GOVERNMENT has intervened in the continued mine wrangles involving Chieftainess Nkomeshya’s daughters and a consortium of mining firms which are claiming to be victimised the royal family.

Mines Minister Paul Kabuswe said that he met the two warring parties to ensure that they find a lasting solution to the impasse.

Mr Kabuswe said that he could only give more details after hearing both sides of the story but he was optimistic that a solution would be found.

“I don’t want to say much but what I can tell you is that the two parties are on their way coming here so that we find a lasting solution over this matter,” he said.

A wrangle has ensued where the royal family are said to be victimising small-scale miners in Kanyele area of Kafue, which falls under Chieftainess Nkomenshya.

The miners cried foul over the alleged mistreatment by Chieftainess Nkomeshya’s daughters whose company Chatupalesa was awarded an exploration licence which prohibited them to mine but just carry out explorations.

The matter has been taken court.
