Three miners have been electrocuted at Mopani Copper Mines in Mufulira. The three – Ali Sichone, Levy Chisapa and Christopher Lamba – were working with water pumps 1,440 metres underground. Last week, Thomas Mulenga died after falling out of a lift cage at Mopani’s central shaft in Nkana, Kitwe. The mining firm therefore suspended all operations at Mufulira, Nkana and Mindola for two days to investigate the accidents. Miners would also be re-trained on safety, according to the Post.
