CSOs Demand Termination of Diamond Mining

Civil society groups demand the immediate termination of diamond mining operations in Marange for audit of all companies operating there

Civil society groups demand the immediate termination of diamond mining operations in Marange, Zimbabwe to allow for an independent and comprehensive audit of all companies operating there, whose findings must also be made public.
 
The groups state that they are appalled that government has, for the past six years, parcelled out and shared such a strategic national resource to individuals and fly-by night investors in deals that have not helped the country's struggling economy or communities around the diamond-rich area.
 
Centre for Research and Development, Zimbabwe Natural Resources Dialogue Forum and Marange Development Trust state that, "It also dampens our spirit to realise that government ... covertly parcelled out national resources to negative entities who have no interest in the socio-economic upliftment of the Zimbabwean people."
