Hwange Colliery board must resign: ZIMCODD

Zimbabwe Coalition on Debt Development (ZIMCODD) has demand that the current board of the Hwange Colliery Company must resign with immediate effect.

ZIMCODD held a press conference yesterday where they addressed the government concerning Hwange Colliery Mine workers who have not been paid since 2014.

They have also demanded for a commission of inquiry to look into the issue of Hwange workers, an immediate forensic audit of the Hwange colliery company limited and a payment of five years  with a lump sum of 10 000.

The press conference follows a group of women who have been demonstrating since the 26th of January 2018.

In an interview with ZimOnline News, one of the women who have been demonstrating against the company, Thobekile Shoko said:

“The reason why there is a prevalent rate of commercial sex works in Hwange is that people are looking for a way to survive since the company has not been paying our husbands.”

She also indicated that in Hwange poor living standards prevail, diseases are spreading and there are food shortages as well.

The issue has been forwarded to the courts but no court ruling has been made.
