KCM management has totally failed to run the mine, there should be safety on the human beings working for KCM. I believe KCM do make alot of profit and why is it that KCM is failing to provide safety to the workers and must of their workers are Zambian people, do they want to kill the all Zambian people, remember what happened in a Kafue river KCM polluted the water and they refused until they were found guilty by the courts of law. If the indians who runs the management of KCM have failed they should come openly and say we have failed. This is not the first time KCM is doing this.
