Kagem Miners Start Protest Over Pay

Unionised workers at Kagem Minerals on Tuesday held a peaceful protest to press government to increase their salaries.  They are also demanding for a 35 percent increase in housing allowance and a 20 percent hardship allowance.

ESMAAZ President Victor Kalesha said as an association, they are optimistic that Kagem will meet this demand on a win-win situation.

Mr Kalesha has since urged the unions to be firm in its negotiations so as not to allow such protests to take off.
