Chief Chibwika of the Lunda tribe in Mwinilunga area has urged the new government to restore order at the Kasenseli gold mine.
Chief Chibwika claimed that the mine is not being handled transparently because there is a lack of understanding of the operations.
Chief Chibwika stated that the mine began operating in 2019 and that the host community has received no advantages since then.
The traditional leader told the media that the mine has no proper documentation but that it went ahead into mining without any engagement.
He called on the government to engage an investor that will operate the mine in a transparent way.
The traditional leader also congratulated the Head of State on the election victory and wished them success as they execute national duties.
