In a groundbreaking move, the non-governmental organization Green Governance has unveiled its latest initiative, titled “Data-Driven Advocacy for Accountability in the Mining Sector.” The project, developed in collaboration with three radio stations, including Yafm, aims to revolutionize transparency and accountability in Zimbabwe’s mining sector.

Brandon Chikomborero Mushipe, Project Assistant Officer, shared the project’s vision in an interview with Great Dyke News. Mushipe detailed how the initiative seeks to propel transparency and accountability by systematically collecting and disseminating data on mining operations.

The strategic use of radio as a platform will facilitate widespread information sharing and public engagement on pertinent mining sector issues.

While the project is currently underway in Zvishavane and Mhondoro Ngezi, Mushipe revealed plans for nationwide coverage. The expansion aims to encompass the entire country, reflecting the project’s commitment to addressing mining challenges on a comprehensive scale.

Mushipe emphasized that the core focus of data collection and analysis revolves around gold, lithium, and platinum mining operations – the three pivotal mining sectors in Zimbabwe. The project’s overarching goal is to furnish detailed insights into the operational, social, and environmental aspects of these sectors.

In addition to its collaboration with radio stations, the initiative, as outlined by Mushipe, will actively engage with residents’ representatives and community leaders. This inclusive approach seeks to gather firsthand information and advocate for heightened accountability in the mining sector. Mushipe underscored the importance of involving communities directly affected by mining operations, recognizing them as those who often bear the brunt of negative impacts.
