A lot has been happening on the mining taxes - whose paid what? how much? has the government backed down? A lot of contradictory stories. Not worry, this fantastic Mine Watch Zambia blog has brought it all together.
soooo... Any word on what will be done with the new revenue ?
The money is being kept in a separate account...a policy is being developed..I just hope it is not used to fund a new presidential election which will now take place in the next 90 days...following the President's death today..
Who is develloping it ? Is it discussed publicly ? Why aren't you posting on what to do with the new money ?
Okay...I will post..I thought I had that..but actually I haven't...A quick review of "lessons" learnt from others will be done....
