The Patriotic Front in North Western province says Government will solve the problem of illegal mining at Kansenseli gold mine by quickly identifying an investor to operationalise the mine.
This follows the arrest of two illegal miners by Police.
PF Provincial Chairperson Jackson Kungo says the opening of the mine will also provide the youths in the province the much needed employment.
He says it will also give opportunity to the people in the province to benefit as opposed to the people outside the province because those that where engaging in illegal mining had been identified as not coming from the area.
Mr Kungo says the people of Mwinilunga are eager to start seeing the benefits of having a precious mineral resource in their district.
He told ZNBC News in a statement that once fully operational, the economic landscape of Mwinilunga will change as this will widen the revenue base for Mwinilunga Town Council as well as the Central Government.
Meanwhile, Mr Kungo has called on the police to protect the mine site as per the Presidential directive.
He wondered how illegal miners could access the area and continue with mining when officers have been deployed on site.
