Suspension of ZCCM-IH on London Stock Exchange, Banda’s resignation, a huge blow to firm’s credibility


Green Party (GP) President, Peter Sinkamba, says the resignation of ZCCM-Investments Holdings Board Chairperson, Dorika Banda, and the subsequent suspension of trading of shares of the Company on the London Stock Exchange is a huge blow to the credibility of the company.

Sinkamba said with corruption having been cited as one of the reasons for the delisting of the company, this will affect the viability of ZCCM-IH as most investors particularly minority shareholders are likely to pull out their investments.

He has warned that no credible investor would want to hang around when their money is at risk of being abused through corruption.

“The Authorities should therefore go to the bottom of the problem and act against the people who have triggered the delisting of the ZCCM-IH on the London Stock Exchange adding that government should disclose the full reasons why the Chairperson resigned and who the people assigned to control the board leading to her resignation were,” Sinkamba said.

He said that this is a sad development which requires serious interrogation to understand its origin.

“Zambians want to see how the new dawn government will deal with this matter of corruption which has been disclosed by an independent institution thereby denting the credentials of the company,” Sinkamba said.
