Environmental Management Agency EMA says continuous pollution of rivers in Manicaland that flow into Mozambique, mainly through illegal alluvial gold panning could strain relations between the two countries. EMA Manicaland Planning and Monitoring Officer, Ernest Marange said Zimbabwe is expected to keep clean rivers that flow into other countries under the International Water Law. Alluvial mining has become a cause for concern in Manicaland with activity dominant in Penhalonga, Nyamukwarara, and some parts of Chipinge and Chimanimani.
