An employee at Bikita Minerals lost his life on Wednesday night after being trapped in a conveyor belt that he was trying to adjust.
A security guard who witnessed the incident and confirmed the deceased as Kudzai Manjonjo said he was trapped in the conveyor belt and sustained severe head injuries that led to his death.
Meanwhile, the mine management led by the Chief Operating Officer Dave Saunders has since met with the Manjonjo family to express their condolences.
The incident comes as a shock for Bikita Minerals as the mine has a largely unblemished safety record for over a decade.
