THE proposal by Minister of Finance Alexander Chikwanda that ZCCM-IH will offer 25 percent shares to the public is good.
However, the minister should explain in simple terms how the ordinary Zambian citizen will take part in this offer.
Time has come for Zambians to benefit from the national resources.
It is also important for the Minister of Finance to shed light on the wage freeze imposed on civil servants in 2014.
The harmonised salaries implemented in 2013 have since lost purchasing power, hence the need to revisit the wage freeze.
