Pedzisai Sakupwanya, popularly known as Scott, has been elected chairman of the Gold Buyers Association of Zimbabwe (GBAZ).
The elections were conducted following a meeting held at the Zimbabwe Miners Federation (Z.M.F) Head Office in Msasa, Harare on Friday.
The meeting was attended by licensed gold buyers across the country. Said Sakupwanya:
My association will be working with gold buyers across the country to ensure that all buyers are taking their productions to Fidelity Printers Refinery.
We hope that the prices around the country will be on par to eradicate bogus buyers.
The association’s Treasurer General Raj Skorus said the formation of the association will help in the eradication and elimination of leakage sponsored competition which was prejudicing small scale and artisanal miners.
He added that the establishment of one union will improve the quality of communication within the gold buyers’ community.
