Mukorokoza shot at Eureka Gold Mine


Mukorokoza shot at Eureka Gold Mine. One of the artisanal miners reportedly wreaking havoc at Eureka Gold Mine in Guruve was last week shot on the leg after trying to attack security guards in a gold ore scuffle.

Chriswell Mushongahande (27) of Muroiwa village under Chief Chipuriro in Guruve is recovering at Guruve District Hospital after he was shot by a security guard Paradzai Nyamutsenga (51).

Police officer commanding Guruve district Robert Torevasei confirmed the incident. “One of the artisanal miners was shot by guards after he tried to attack them using an iron bar. Last week, the police had to use tear smoke to disperse them as they ran amok,” Torevasei said.

He said illegal miners were slowly giving up on the mine after police intervention although the law enforcers were slowly moving away to focus on their core business.

“Illegal miners are now coming in small numbers since our intervention and most of the crashing machines were removed, but we are also slowly withdrawing our services because it is not our core business,” Torevasei added.

The mine is currently under care and maintenance, hence many illegal miners are flocking to the place, prospecting for gold.
