Hwange Colliery Company Limited has advised its shareholders and the public to exercise caution when dealing with the company shares following ongoing disputes between two senior company officials on allegations of impropriety.
This comes after the group suspended its managing director, Thomas Makore, on allegations of corruption.
Acting board chairperson, Juliana Muskwe, in a statement said the company has instituted formal investigations into the allegations.

"Accordingly, shareholders and members of the public are advised to exercise caution and consult their professional advisors when dealing in the Company's shares, until the outcome of formal investigations is announced," said Muskwe.
