registered aircraft avoid the sector. when the show rags to riches ties style at once for son of a fisherman is making millions today. fish on facebook. this is business africa. as well call it a bitter dispute between the government and india mining giant vidanta is raising borys over the nationalization of resources in africa zambia the continent 2nd biggest producer of copper more than 70 percent of its g.d.p. depends on its copper exports it can see zambia's for biggest mines the one that's been making headlines recently is this one here run by com coal a couple mines ok c.n. in may the zambian government decided to liquidate the business saying it had breached its license and sell it to an outside by this dismayed vedanta of course
7:18 pm
which holds an 80 percent states and a stake in k.c. m. compared with the zambian government's 20 percent yet zambia courts have ruled that the indian company cannot take part in the liquidation process that is as shaken the wider mining community driving up fears of resource nationalism and driving down international cup of prices to talk with more about this story joined in the studio a chip on the chin bow. tell us why is this such a big. a dispute over case how did there come about well this is a dispute basically about who holds what money to whom the government says the down to owes that money in taxes and the dentist says does i mean government that money in some of the v.a. t. o. value added tax it has paid on the copper and that is part of the problem but the main problem is the legal proceedings as you mentioned earlier the down one hasn't been involved in liquidation proceedings it was actually started by the minority
7:19 pm
shareholder which is in government and they are the ones who started the insolvency proceedings that led to the coup de should to liquidation of case yeah and that is the major problem so the downs are really has taken issue with the fact that they are not part of the legal process that could see them lose the mine there are fears now that the government is nationalizing its resources is that justified and why would they do that well is it justified most people would say probably not because like we've said the legal proceedings haven't seen the downs i like but it's a pain in them but in terms of what's going on the zambian government is cash strapped they have public debt of over 70 percent of g.d.p. and that's an issue so a lot of experts as saying this could be an effort of the by the government rather to actually raise some cash by selling the copper mining operation which is owned by the down south and that is kind of the worry at this point and this is the major
7:20 pm
the major issue is of zambian government doing this out of desperation. so what's going to happen with zambia's copper riches well there's been government says this is a one off this is an isolated case and it's not about the whole copper mining industry so the glencore as well has the mining operations in the country and so does the canadian company 1st quantum minerals so they the government is saying that they won't be affected by this in terms of case we might see them get a new buyer may be next. next month rather there's i'm going present at said that they might be able to get a buyer. buyers lining up in 5 different countries including canada china russia turkey and it will be apparently everybody everybody wants a piece of copper mining industry is on the at least according the president i we don't know what will happen but maybe the next 4 weeks we'll find out stay on that story of course thank you very much of turning off the internet to

stop students from cheating sounds crazy but that seems to be what happened in field is wheat internet penetration is still low there but the country is rapidly modernizing more and more students are using their smartphones to go online even the growing software developer sector since the government controls the only telecoms provider in the country made it easy to pull the plug to stop students from cheating in the final exams. now let's bring in joy the ring bearer of from nairobi joy switching off the internet for the whole country what did businesses in ethiopia have to say about that. well businesses in ethiopia were quite quite upset you know because of the internet access in ethiopia is pleased that 37 percent we are also looking at the fact that if you be a host some international organizations because it's home to the african union and
7:22 pm
so by extension of course there are so many services that would be affected and so businesses were saying that you know the government needs to come up with better ways to linage the students or come up with better mechanisms to manage the students cheating because this is hurting their businesses the figure is being pleased between paul a $1000000.00 and $17000000.00 a day lost just because of the internet shutdown and these intimate and outages started on the 10th of june all the way into the 19th of june i was in an added suburb or between the 17th and the 1000 on june and i could actually tell the internet during the day was really bad and it only came back in the night when it was business so i have actually closed shop. one of the long term effects on these there of these decisions in the country and one of the fastest rising
