Bikita Residents At Risk Of Crocodile Attacks

Bikita, May 17, 2010 – Bikita residents are at risk of being attacked by crocodiles after Zanu PF youth and boisterous war veterans here vandalised and ransacked a crocodile breeding project run by lithium mining giant,
Bikita Minerals.

The war veterans accused mine manager, Nigel Macfail, of being sympathetic to the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T) party under Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai.

Mcfail was once abducted and beaten by Zanu (PF) youth who left him for dead in the run up to the bloody June 27 run-off elections.

Villagers under Chief Marozva area told Radio VOP  they were benefiting from the Mine’s crocodile project as many got employment.

“For the past four months, our lives had changed because of this project by Bikita Minerals. Then came the fighters of the liberation struggle and some over zealous Border Gezi youth and destroyed everything. They politicised everything. Now, we have no income and some of the crocodiles have eaten our livestock,” said Marvelous Rupiya, a villager.

Mcfail confirmed the project had been sabotaged but refused to shed more details, referring all the questions to the mine’s company lawyer, Roderick Makause, of Chihambakwe, Makonese and partners.

“I know that the project has been abandoned…I do not know why, talk to the mine,” Provincial governor and resident Minister, Titus Maluleke said.
