Peter Sinkamba Threatens to Sue Mopani Mines Over Dust Emissions


The Green Party President Peter Sinkamba has threatened to sue Mopani Copper Mines over their dust emissions in Kitwe’s Nkana West Township.

The politician has expressed concern over the emissions coming from the waste disposal facility, claiming the emissions post a threat to civilians including motorists driving along Kalulushi-Sabina Road.

“We have noted with deep concern that your tailings waste disposal facility, also known as TD5, which is located in Nkana West Area, has for some time been discharging dust emissions in levels which contravene the environmental control laws,” Sinkamba said.

“We now demand that you take immediate remedial action to comply with pollution control provisions failure to which we will have no option but take legal action against MCM, Please take this as the final warning,” he added.
