Language of the news reported: 

Lucky Mabhiza, a journalist for the Mbare Times reports that the Ministry of Mines and Mining Development has cancelled certificates of registration for mining in Uzumba that had been given to a Chinese company, Heijin Mining Company (PVT) LTD.

The move comes after protests by Uzumba villagers who alleged that they had not been consulted in the allocation of the land to the mine. The Ministry conducted an assessment which found that "the two blocks of claims were registered encompassing peoples’ homesteads and fields in Uzumba without the consent of the occupiers of the potions of that land".
