Addressing hundreds of workers at Danangwe District Youth Mining Cooperative in Chegutu on Wednesday, Zanu-PF Secretary for Youth in the Politburo, Kudzanayi Chipanga said Government should repossess mining claims and tributaries held for speculative purposes by absentee owners now resident outside the country. He said that the claims should be repossessed to create employment and boost the economy.
All mining claims which are not being used because the owners are outside the country should be repossessed by Government so that youths who are unemployed but have shown their abilities through artisanal mining should be given a chance.
