Minister of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing, July Moyo has said the search at Silver Moon and Cricket mines in Battlefields will continue until the last miner or body is found.
Minister Moyo visited the scene of the disaster and assured the bereaved families and grieving friends the search exercise will be exhaustive. Said Moyo:
Our system is structured in such a way that it initiates response to disasters from the local level. Teams at the local level are the first point of reaction in cases of disaster. Going forward, while the search for bodies at Silver Moon will continue, concentration is now on Cricket Mine where four people are confirmed to be still underground, according to records on registers. I can also confirm that the names of bodies and survivors from Silver Moon Mine match those on records.
