    Thanks. Am I wrong or 2013-028B decayed only July 28 and 1992-089C
    July 22? Maybe I wasn't too clear in my "report". Sorry for that!
    
    The photographed object (first published by "Citizen Journalist" on
    July 18), recovered near "Mulota Village 4" (or "Turf Village", as
    stated in the July 29 news), Ngezi Mine, Mhondoro, Kadoma District,
    Mashonaland West, Zimbabwe, was apparently found Monday July 15 by
    some Sylvester Manika, after "strange blast that was followed by a
    bang " the day before
    [http://bulawayo24.com/index-id-news-sc-national-byo-33522.html] (a
    better description on July 29 news). The Battlefields Police
    spokeperson was quoted July 22 stating "this was the third time that
    unidentified objects were discovered within a week following other
    objects seen in Zvehama Village in Manicaland and in Chikwanha village
    in Mashonaland East", two other provinces. On July 18, "Citizien
    Journalist" wrote instead that "[he] understands that there are other
    fragments that have been spotted in the Mamina area and somewhere
    towards Mvuma. These areas fall under Mhondoro"
    [http://bulawayo24.com/index-id-news-sc-national-byo-33312.html] (the
    first on Mashonaland West provincie, the second on Midlands one).
    July 29 news added that "Two objects landed in the Mhondoro area at
    the Zimplats Mine [i.e. the one photographed] and at Denya Village in
    Mamina [i.e., the one mentioned by "Citizien Journalist"?] while one
    landed in Unyetu in Chikomba district [i.e in Mashonaland East
    Province, so that perhaps should be the one identified as Chikwanha
    village in the news of 22]. [...] The spherical objects that landed in
    Mamina and Unyetu were said to weigh above 10kg."
    [http://bulawayo24.com/index-id-news-sc-national-byo-33854.html]
    
    So we haven't very precise location data, but all findings seem to
    have occurred in the days following July 14 and before, perhaps, July
    18 or, at least, July 22.
    
    Best,
    Roberto
