ZANU PF Disown Uzumba Protestors

ZANU PF officials in the Uzumba constituency have disowned party supporters who recently demonstrated against Chinese miner, Heijin’s granite mining operations in the district.

The supporters threatened not to vote for the ruling party in the elections expected in 2023 if the government does not put a stop to the operations which they said would displace nearly 100 families.

Following the protests, President Emmerson Mnangagwa ordered Heijin to stop the mining operations in the district saying the communities have the power to decide whether or not they want mining projects on their land.

Meanwhile, Simbaneuta Mudarikwa (Uzumba MP ZANU PF) Tuesday said those who denounced the ruling party were hired hooligans. Mudarikwa said:

Those who appeared on those videos saying they would not vote for Zanu PF are not part of us. They are people who were hired by some negative elements. Uzumba belongs to Zanu PF, and our members are disciplined,.

Mudarikwa said the Chinese project was welcome in the area as long as investors followed all the necessary procedures.

He said the decision to bar the Chinese company was welcome as it had disregarded guidelines in the Mines and Minerals Act.

Uzumba is traditionally known as a Zanu PF stronghold.
