ED Pledges To Stop Whites Who “Are Still Siphoning Out Our Mineral Resources”

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has vowed to stop whites who are reportedly smuggling Zimbabwe’s mineral resources out of the country.

Addressing delegates to a Zimbabwe Miners Federation (ZMF) Annual General Meeting attended mostly by small scale miners in Gweru, Mnangagwa said that he had been ignorant of the matter but now sees the significance of coming up with laws which stop the leakages. He said:

During colonialism, the whites looted our mineral resources. We are now independent, and I am hearing that they are still siphoning out our mineral resources right under our nose.

His remarks are in sync with reports earlier made suggesting that the country’s mineral resources were being smuggled through the country’s porous borders causing the country to lose a lot in revenue.

The late former president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, at some point alleged that the country had potentially lost diamonds worth about US$15 billion.

  1. Enough of the white-bashing – you sound like Mugabe! Corruption and poor governance are all your own doing. Until you stand up and take ownership of the governments’ shortcomings, stop blaming others for your incompetence and corruption, we can never move forward!

  2. THE ZIMBABWEAN PRESIDENT THE BIGGEST FOOL IN AFRICA its not white who loot but zanupf officials and Chinese the greatest thief of zim minerals are zanupf including mnangagwa who own loots of mines who is he fooling zanupf has got big bellies by stealing minerals stop blaming whites you did that stupidity on farms and you killed zim you did it on companies and you destroyed the industry i have never seen a fool like zim president

  4. Pindula News should stop this racist headlines. The fight is against leakages not a group of people. What are you guys enjoying in polarising Zimbabweans along racial and tribal lines. If we may ask?? Bad journalism

    1. Don’t shoot the messenger… they are simply quoting what the President said!
      “During colonialism, the whites looted our mineral resources. We are now independent, and I am hearing that they are still siphoning out our mineral resources right under our nose.”

  5. Sadly it whites that you blame for looting built the country reinvested the money in the community and infrastructure, gave thepoor hard done by locals toilets cars a real language law contititutions clothes etc etc
    So what had zanu invested in themselves a cracking chinese stadium and a couple if roads

  6. Any attack on any person if race goes against the values of the liberation struggle but the struggle has been hijacked by zanu pf and its racially charged agenda and unwillingness to listen the people
    Dont you remember the slogan one man one vote ,well these supposed heroes have destroyed that ideal completely

  7. Isn’t it strange that Mugabe alone looted approximately that amount of money from Zimbabwe, which his ‘poor, grieving,’ widow is sitting on now. Think about it, how did he get to buy so many properties around the world? How did those spoilt, rich, brats of his get to buy hotels and properties in Dubai? Wake up!!! Mugabe was a thief, amongst many others around him, who have ALL stolen the diamonds. Don’t blame the whites, like you always do for your failures and sheer incompetence!!!

  8. Smuggling of a country’s assets is criminal whatever the race of the perpetrator may be. And tell me who had control of the Marage and Chiadzwa diamonds when the $15 billion disappeared? Maybe the statement from the president should have read, ” During colonialism, the whites looted our mineral resources. We are now independent, the blacks are looting our resources…”
