Villagers close down Chinese mine in Chitipa

Malawi Police were called in on Thursday morning to bring peace and calm at a Chinese owned mine in Chitipa after villagers set ablaze security guard structures at the mine.

Chitipa residents refuse to be ripped off by Chinese miners

Government has since closed down the mine at Mbirima in the district pending talks which are scheduled after the Christmas and New Year festive season.

Chitipa district commissioner Humphrey Gondwe has confirmed of the closure of the mine pending the talks which will be initiated by officials from the department of Mines.

The villagers forced the closure of the mine after Group Village Headman Mbirima told the district commissioner to close the mine because the miners were refusing to honour their corporate social responsibility to the community.

This is good. When an investor come into Malawi, there must be signs of change. People must not come to our country in the name of an investor and fail to assist in building up a small bridge joining too villages, that alone should raise an alarm. Not every Chinese is a serious investor. Our government is failing to do due diligence. These guys have to bring improvements to the lives of the locals otherwise they must stay at home

That’s the way we should be doing from now onwards……..if Karongans had done that, they could have benefited something not the dams and small crater lakes left behind by the Australians at Kayelekera …..
