Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) president Edith Nawakwi has accused Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda of conniving with First Quantum Minerals to loot the mineral resources of the country using the revoked Statutory Instrument number 89.

Ms Nawakwi has told Qfm News in an interview that it is common knowledge that the Kansanshi mine stock pile contains unprocessed uranium, cobalt, and gold.

Ms. Nawakwi explains that it is a matter of grave concern and shock that Mr. Chikwanda had gone as far as conniving with the investors of First Quantum Minerals.

Speaking in an interview with QFM, Ms Nawakwi says Mr. Chikwanda has wrapped himself in his own umbilical cord.

She says by enforcing the SI 89, Mr. Chikwanda turned his back on the Zambian people by allowing the export of copper concentrates.
