Bindura Mine Disaster Update: Rescuers Have Retrieved First Body.
Nick Mangwana Government Spokesperson announced that the rescue team have retrieved one body from the mine shaft in Bindura.
30 illegal gold miners are believed to be trapped underground in the mine that belongs to Ran Mine. The mine collapsed last week Wednesday after Bindura had received heavy rains on Tuesday.
The actual number of trapped miners is not yet known though official estimates put the figures roughly between 20 and 40 miners. It is reported that 6 miners were retrieved within hours of the mine collapse.
In an interview, a representative of Ran Mine, Mr John Murehwa last week said rescue efforts can only be carried out after the mine has been de-watered.
We are going to de-water but given the circumstances, we hope to see that after de-watering experts get in to assess if the surface is safe without endangering that outside
Government spokesperson Nick Mangwana tweeted, reporting that one male body was retrieved
