ZVISHAVANE – The just opened Sabi Gold Mine in Zvishavane has been forced to get reinforcements from the Zimbabwe Republic Police after illegal gold miners attacked their internal guards with petrol bombs.
Senior administrator at the mine Dr Wesley Sibanda confirmed the development and added that the move was also aimed at reducing the number of casualties at the mine as many illegal gold miners have died in the shafts due to lack of safety measures.
Sources told The Mirror that the illegal gold miners have become so violent that they were openly attacking mine security personnel.
Dr Sibanda said guards at the mine are going to undergo further training so that they match the illegal miners.
A fortnight ago a group of the miners understood to be from the Mazvihwa area sent mine guards retreating under attack. Some of the guards escaped death by a whisker when they were attacked with petrol bombs.
 The notorious miners are understood to be from the Mazvihwa and Masunda area.
"We have roped in the services of the Police in order to reinforce security at the mine. Illegal miners have been our greatest challenge and their violence has forced us to upgrade the level of security. We are also going to intensify training of our very own risk officers so that they can manage the situation," said Sibanda.
The illegal miners from the two areas also have vicious fights against each other.
Sabi was reopened at the beginning of the year after Chandiwana Mining took 49% stake from the Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation.
