Nampula: Heavy Sand Explorers Fail to Fulfil Their Social Responsibility

Community leaders accuse companies contracted by mining company Haiyu Mining in Angoche and Moma, Nampula province, of failing to fulfil their social responsibility.

Haiyu Mining has been mining heavy sands in the Angoche and Moma districts of Nampula province since 2011. When it arrived, it promised to carry out social actions, but this is not the case, according to the chief of Morrua, Lopes Chocotela.

According to Lopes Chocotela, it was planned to rehabilitate access roads and two football pitches between 2017 and 2022, but this didn’t happen.

In addition to the mining company, community leaders also blame the contractors for not meeting the targets set. ‘All the contractors are slow, which is to the detriment of the population who expected to see everything that was promised fulfilled,’ said Chocotela.

As a way of overcoming this lack of fulfilment of promises, community leaders suggest that the mining company change contractors, as they believe it is necessary to look for companies with better machines.

Momade Artur, head of the town of Mpago, added that the contractor responsible for drilling 16 boreholes was unable to finish the job, which is why they are all dry.

However, the company responsible for the projects points to the contractors’ difficulty in reaching the community as the cause for the failure to meet targets. Haiyu Mining is responsible for building schools, health centres and providing electricity, among other things.
