Revival Of David Whitehead Under Threat

Revival Of David Whitehead Under Threat

The revival of David Whitehead Textile Limited (DWTL) is reportedly under threat from gold mining activities on the company’s properties in Chegutu, about 100 kilometres west of Harare.

Business Weekly reported sources as saying a special mining grant issued to Task Mining Syndicate encroaches David Whitehead’s properties.

The special grant (number 8934) issued to Task Mining Syndicate by the Secretary of Mines and Mining Development measures about 10 hectares. It expires on 7 February 2024.

Agri Value Chain Zimbabwe (AVCZ), a local company with diverse interests in agro-processing owns about 70 per cent stake in the company formerly owned by Lonhro plc.

AVCZ also runs a cotton ginnery, a cooking oil refinery and soya chunks processing plant within the vicinity of the mining grant. A Business Weekly source was quoted as saying:

The major concern is that the mining operations have the potential to interfere with AVCZ operations and this threatens the revival of the textile company.

There has been a lot happening in terms of investments by Agri Value Chain Zimbabwe, not only the textile business but also in (cooking) oil refinery, brick manufacturing and soya chunks and concerns are that the mining operations could threaten all these investments.

AVCZ also operates a cooking oil refinery as well as margarine and washing soap plants in Harare, and a cotton ginnery in Checheche.

The resuscitation of David Whitehead is being slowed due to pending legal issues.

AT ONE PARLIAMENTARIANS DEXTER NDUNA WAS VERY VOCAL ABOUT THE RESUSCITATION OF DAVID WHITEHEAD. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY HAS FISSLED OUT. DAVID WHITEHEAD IS NOT ONLY ESSENTIAL TO THE PEOPLE OF CHEGUTU, BUT TO THE GENERAL CITIZENRY OF ZIMBABWE.

THE SITUATION WHICH IS OBTAINING IS THAT ALL OUR CLOTH MATERIALS ARE BEING IMPORTED FROM THE FAR EAST OR THE MIDDLE EAST. THAT MUST BE CORRECTED BY OPENING DAVID WHITEHEAD.

Blame it to the sitting gvt. We have seen wet lands destroyed in that manner, we have seen game parks invaded I the same manner. Mnangagwa must act. Now
