Zimbabwe-Joins-the-World-in-Observing-Earth-Day

As the world observes Earth Day, experts warn of the detrimental impact of mining activities, particularly illegal gold mining, on communities and organizations. Zimbabwe is renowned for its abundance of natural resources, including precious minerals and wildlife, but the country's economy is causing several issues such as deforestation, soil erosion, and reduced water supply due to the filling of rivers and dams. 

Farai Maguwu, the head of the Centre for Natural Resource Governance, stresses the significance of observing Earth Day and educating Zimbabwe's children about the importance of responsible mining practices. 

Maguwu concurs with the opinion that mining is destroying forests and communities in various parts of the country. Lawyer and natural resource consultant, Mr. Nqobizitha Ndlovu, notes that Zimbabwe has clear environmental protection laws, but the critical issue is whether or not these laws are being enforced. 

The Environmental Management Authority (EMA) spokesperson, Ms. Joyce Chapungu, mentions that the EMA collaborates with various government agencies and organisations to safeguard the environment. The destruction of forests and communities, particularly by illegal gold miners, was raised as a concern at the annual meeting of chiefs held in Bulawayo in the previous month. 

Mr. Pfungwa Kunaka, the Secretary General in the Ministry of Minerals, pledges that the revised mining law will address these issues. However, the minister of natural resources and tourism, Mr. Nqobizitha Mangaliso Ndlovu, was yet to respond to questions sent to him at the time of writing. 

Earth Day is commemorated on 22nd April every year as a reminder of the significance of environmental protection.
