Government to evict diamond miners

In an interview with The Herald yesterday, Mines and Mining Development Minister Walter Chidhakwa revealed that Government will evict diamond miners in Chiadzwa who opposed being consolidated into the Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company.

Minister Chidhakwa said when the ministry ordered the companies to stop operations they went to court and it was pronounced that their Special Grants had expired and allowing the companies to resume operations was illegal.

In February he gave the miners operating at Chiadzwa and Chimanimani 90 days to remove their equipment and other valuables from the fields,

But what we did was we decided to put in place a process of eviction after the 90 days expired. The law says after the 90 days that allow them to take their equipment, we can in fact go by way of eviction. So that is the process we are undertaking now.

Government decided to consolidate all diamond mining in Zimbabwe into one company in a bid to improve efficiency and accountability.
