The Parliamentary portfolio committee on mines is set to carry out a situation assessment of mining activities in Penhalonga and Chimanimani this month, in an effort to monitor compliance to laws governing mining operations and environmental activities.

Committee chairperson Edmond Mukaratigwa told Diamond Fm that the main target in Manicaland is Redwing Mine following numerous complaints of air pollution by residents in Penhalonga.

He added that during the national exercise they will make recommendations for the Environmental Management Agency to close down mining companies failing to comply with the laws and polluting the environment.
