LOCAL – HARARE (Mining Index) – OUTGOING Zimbabwe Miners Federation (ZMF) vice president Lindi Mpofu says it was a privilege to work and interact with the artisanal and small-scale miners (ASM) in Zimbabwe.
Mpofu wraps up her three-year tenure as vice president of the miners federation, following her resignation earlier this year where she cited ‘business expansion commitments within the region’ as the reason for her exiting the miner’s body.
Mpofu served as the federations vice president since 2018. Prior to her vice presidency, Mpofu was ZMF Secretary General.
‘As I bid good bye to my Vice President position at ZMF, I am filled with great pride at all of the accomplishments that have been achieved by the President of ZMF, The Board and the ZMF Membership during my time there. It has indeed been an honour to serve miners as we have sought to uplift the ASM and Small-Scale Miners of Zimbabwe,’ said Mpofu.
Mpofu said the mark of respect she enjoyed during her interface with the ASM community must continue towards improving Zimbabwe’s mining sector.
‘It has been a wonderful pleasure working with everyone and as I move forward to my next ventures, I look forward to the path that I will be taking. However, I will always continue to champion our sectors causes for the betterment of our industry,’ she said.
She wished the soon-to-be elected ZMF leadership to continue working hard in making ZMF a true steward and formidable force to champion the aspirations of Zimbabwe’s ASM sector.
‘As ZMF moves towards elections I wish all the participating candidates success as they seek to build on Federation’s achievements,’ said Mpofu.
In April this year, ZMF set the dates for General Council and regional representatives elections. According to the federation, the office of the current executive and general councilors expire on 14th June 2021, paving way for elections from 28th May 2021 to 1 June 2021, expected to be presided over by the National Executive.
