Why is HH against new mines tax?

Daily Nation Newspaper - - Readers Forum -

Ed­i­tor,

This is the worst be­trayal by Mr Hakainde Hichilema against Zam­bians, and it sets a prece­dent to what would be­come of his gov­ern­ment if at all he would form one. It is an open se­cret that Zam­bia has not been ad­e­quately ben­e­fit­ing from her min­er­als. How could he as a po­ten­tial fu­ture head of the na­tion rub­bish such re­forms which are de­signed to im­prove the wel­fare of Zam­bians? The new tax might bring some short term ad­verse shocks, but it is bet­ter to face it head-on than to keep killing ideas which in the long term would raise the liv­ing stan­dards of Zam­bians. No boss, on this one you has missed the mark. It can’t be busi­ness as usual!
