DINDE COMMUNITY FIGHTS TO STOP COAL PROJECT

DINDE community members are locked in stand-off with a Chinese investor over the latter’s proposed coal exploration operations within their community, with villagers fighting to stop the operations. Villagers argue that the Chinese investors are in breach of environmental and customary laws of the country as they have not produced any documents granting them permission to work in the area nor engaged the community for a social license. The Chinese investors operating as Beifer Investments today (the 5th of February 2021) moved to Dinde to start the work. Dinde village is in Ward 13 of Hwange Rural District, Matabeleland North.
