DC denies reports of workers’ protest
REPORTS that Zambian workers employed by a French company rehabilitating Kariba Dam planned a protest if their contracts are not renewed are false, says Siavonga District Commissioner Lovemore Kanyama. Mr Kanyama said claims that employees working for Razel –Bec a French construction company contracted to rehabilitate the Kariba dam intended to protest if their contracts were not renewed were false. He thanked Razel -Bec Company for having employed more local people as well as some individuals outside Siavonga for skilled positions.
