The Zimbabwe Miners Federation (ZMF) has cautioned its members from falling victim to mushrooming “Miners for ED” organisations soliciting funds across the country.
In a statement the ZMF Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mr Wellington Takavarasha said the groups target unsuspecting ZMF members and other entities.
“It has come to the attention of the Zimbabwe Miners Federation (ZMF) that there are Miners for ED organizations that have mushroomed and are soliciting monies from unsuspecting ZMF members, ZANU PF groups, and other government entities,” the statement read in part.
