Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri Sued By RioZim After Seizing Mining Claims

Mining conglomerate RioZim has sued Minister of Defence and War Veterans Oppah Muchinguri Kashiri after she allegedly seized the company’s chrome mining claims when she declared that they were part of a cantonment area. RioZim alleges that the claims were then allocated over to two other companies, Falcon Resources (Pvt) Ltd and Rusununguko Nkululeko (Pvt) which are linked to the military. In its court papers, RioZim Limited’s chief geologist, Patrick Takaedza, said

This is an application for the review of the first respondent’s (Minister of Mines and War Veterans Affairs) decision in declaring the area described in the schedule to Statutory Instrument (SI) 145/2018 as a cantonment area, acting in terms of section 89 of the Defence Act (chapter 11.02)

…The map shows that the initial cantonment area covered 2 541,4 hectares, and the current declaration extends the cantonment area to 79 300 hectares. The map was prepared after the applicant tried in vain to inspect the map referred to in the schedule…The applicant understands that the two shareholders are, however, nominees of the recently formed Defence Economic Development Directorate.

Muchinguri-Kashiri is yet to respond.
