Chindori Chininga’s report on diamond mining

via Chindori Chininga’s report on diamond mining – The Zimbabwean 22/03/2016

The Committee on Mines and Energy through its oversight responsibility conducted an enquiry into the diamond mining sector for the period 2010 to 2013.

The purpose of the enquiry was basically to hold the Executive accountable for its programs, policies and actions in the sector, taking into account the fact that the financial hopes on revenue proceeds for Government, in 2012 and 2013 have been premised on the buoyant performance of the diamond sector.

The findings and observations of the Committee span over a period of four years. The delay in tabling this Report has largely been due to two reasons. Firstly, there was a contestation of power between the Executive and the Legislature over access to information and entry by the Committee to carry on site visits in Marange.

Secondly, the Committee was compelled to keep pace with rapid changes and developments in the sector, which made it imperative to base the findings and recommendations on relevant and accurate information.

    The report is clear of the liabilities of the mining companies, tax of $43 billion and the royalties of $17 billion. Instead of implementing Mugabe and company killed the chair.

    The report is clear of the liabilities of the mining companies, tax of $43 billion and the royalties of $17 billion. Instead of implementing Mugabe and company killed the chair. There is clear view that ZANU PF gained lots, and one wonders why Mugabe’s figures are way low than what was actually stolen or not remitted. Mujuru alerted that India build a City out of the diamonds. Instead of Mugabe to follow up there was much criticism on those allegation only to acknowledge the theft two years later. It shows Mugabe sensory nerves are like those of a dinosaur. That senses long after the stimulus.
