Chinese now in Chiadzwa


The government has awarded rights to a Chinese company to mine diamonds at Chiadzwa, Marange.

Government sources this week said the Chinese had already descended on Chiadzwa where they were building housing structures and offices.

The sources identified the company as Anjin China – Zimbabwe although it could not be confirmed by officials at the Chinese embassy in Harare.

Obert Mpofu, Mines minister, did not answer his mobile phone. He is on record saying he does not want to talk to journalists from the Zimbabwe Independent stable.

Chris Mushohwe, the governor and resident minister for Manicaland said he has not yet been officially informed about the presence of the Chinese at Chiadzwa.

Two weeks ago over 50 Chinese nationals were sighted at the government complex in Mutare before they proceeded to Chiadzwa.
