THE Mineworkers Union of Zambia (MUZ) has backed the call by State House for a commission of inquiry into the sale of State-owned enterprises during the privatisation process in the 1990s.
MUZ president Joseph Chewe told a media briefing yesterday that there is need to review the privatisation process to ascertain errors and alleged plunder of national resources.
Mr Chewe said MUZ has compiled a report on the mistakes, lessons and benefits from the privatisation process and will soon present it to Government and the World Bank.
He said time is now ripe to settle the debate on the alleged looting of national assets under the guise of the privatisation policy.
