Description : In 1996-97 an unknown number of landmines were laid during fightings. So far, six villagers stepped on landmines. Four of them died on the spot, close to their own houses.

A team of mine-clearing experts has now the task to clear a 30.000 square meters area. So far eight mines have been deleted by Handicap International deminers and 1813 square meters are now safe again. From the beginning of 2014 a dog unit (with 3 dogs and one dogleader) and a special machine should support the deminers in Mukuwanyama. Besides mines, the Handicap International deminers team also found ammunition, hand grenades and mortar grenades.
