Six Chinese Die in Zimbabwe Mine Gas Explosion

Seven people, including six foreign nationals, were killed when gas cylinders exploded at the SAS gold mine in Mazowe, Central Zimbabwe.

Fortune Chasi, a Mazowe lawmaker, said that the six foreigners were Chinese.

“When I got there, the police were collecting the bodies. Ministry of Mines officials and other government officials were there trying to establish what exactly happened,” Chasi said on Friday.

The explosion happened at the mine on Thursday evening, police said.

Officers were “investigating the circumstances in which six foreign nationals, as well as a Zimbabwean, died when some gas cylinders exploded at SAS mine,” police spokesperson Paul Nyathi.

Another person was critically injured and taken to a local hospital, Nyathi added.

In 2019, eight illegal gold planners died in a mine explosion at Jumbo, Mazowe.

Two others who were critically injured were admitted to a hospital in the area, the police said at the time.
