Miner Crushed By Hammer Mill

Zimbabwe Republic Police has confirmed that a miner was last week crushed to death by a hammer mill at Phirip Mine in Mazowe.

Mashonaland Central provincial police spokesperson Inspector Milton Mundembe said that Luke Mugiya (19) was operating a hammer mill when he was approached by Steven Tubuso and his brother with their gold ore.

Steven reportedly entered the mill to separate the ore from the dump and allegedly instructed Mugiya to press a separating button.

Mugiya, unfortunately, pressed the wrong button and crushed him in the process.

Police warned miners to employ qualified operators to avoid such accidents.
