In a statement the Zimbabwe Miners Federation Chief Executive Officer Mr. Wellington Takavarasha said ZMF officials had travelled to Kadoma to attend an accident that occurred in the early hours of yesterday.
In a statement ZMF said,
“Due to circumstances beyond our control, the weekly meeting between ZMF /Ministry of Mines and Mining Development that was pencilled for today was not held as ZMF team travelled in the morning to attend an ASM disaster in Kadoma. The meeting has been deferred to next week. Meanwhile, all issues and concerns tabled by yesterday 20:00 hrs were captured for presentation. The Ministry will then advise on the way forward,” read the statement.
It was earlier this week announced that the Ministry of Mines and Mining Development and the Zimbabwe Miners Federation (ZMF) officials will be holding weekly meetings on issues and concerns affecting artisanal, small and medium-scale mining operations.
