EMA Threatens To Sue Highway Chrome Miners, Orders Them To Rehabilitate Pits
The Environmental Management Agency (EMA) has given chrome miners who operated along the Zvishavane-Shurugwi highway a month to fill up the pits they created or to face legal action. This comes after the government ordered the chrome miners to stop their operations citing destruction to the highways and safety concerns for people and cattle.
EMA Midlands Provincial Education and Publicity Officer Simon Musasiwa,
We issued the miners with orders to rehabilitate the pits according to the government directive. The orders are usually for 21 days to a month and we will be making a follow up after the order lapses to check if the miners have complied, if not then we will take legal action.Feedback
Zimbabwe Miners’ Federation (ZMF) chairperson, Makumba Nyenje said,
We will be convening a meeting with mining associations in Zvishavane on Thursday to educate each other as miners on mining safety and responsible mining practices and on Friday we will be convening a general council meeting to address some of these issues from a small scale and artisanal mining sector.
