Addressing a Zanu PF campaign rally at Chizanga Primary School in Mutoko, at the weekend, President Mnangagwa confirmed diamond deposits have been discovered in Mashonaland East. 

Mnangagwa said he had since ordered Provincial Affairs minister David Musabayana not to encourage people to look for the diamonds. Said Mnangagwa:

He (Musabayana) explained on the issue of diamonds and I said on that issue, slow down. We will deliberate on that in August after coming up with a new law on diamonds. As for now, stop encouraging people to look for the diamonds. But we will have a clear picture on how to mine diamonds in August.

NewsDay could not get the exact location of the mineral from Musabayana, but reports that diamond deposits were discovered in Chihota, Marondera West.
