Norton Member pf Parliament Temba Mliswa has condemned the abuse artisan number in a fight between one Mr Steward Luckford and Breckridge company over a Gadzema Gold Mine located in Chegutu.

The Youths are organized under a banner called Danangwe District Youth in Mining.

"There's no political will on behalf of ZANU PF_ to deal with this, it's CORRUPTION, there's no rule of law, we may as we'll forget it. This is going to turn full circle  injure them one day. No one will invest whilst unlawfulness is rife."Mliswa said. "The poor young boys don't realise they're being used, the diamond mining saga is nothing compared to this, it's very sad."

The youths were recently reported to have overpowered police officers who had come to evict them from the mine.

Luckford is said to have told the youths that President Mnangagwa instructed them to takeover all mines that were lying idle across the country so that they can benefit the youths.

"We are working under a government direct that all idle mines should be taken over by capable miners especially the youths," Luckford is quoted saying.

There has been a renewed zeal among ZANU PF officials to takeover mines and mining claims in the recent past.

The Minister of State Security in the Office of the President Owen Mudha was recently fingered in a mine wrangle in Kwekwe.
