Zim diamond company boss faces chop as output sinks

14 september 2016
Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company (ZCDC)’s boss Ridge Nyashanu is facing demotion as output remains disappointingly low.
The country produced 972 765 carats of diamonds in the first six months of the year against a target of 6 million carats, a government official has said.
ZCDC had been the sole producer of diamonds in Marange since March this year.
NewsDay reports that the state-owned company was now hunting for a new chief executive officer to turn things around.
However, top mines ministry officials were said to be against the proposal.
“Nyashanu has the minister’s backing, but the board has resolved to redeploy him. He is supposed to be operating from the mine to pave way for another CEO starting this week, but he is still around,” an unnamed source was quoted as saying.
“The problem with ZCDC is that there are a lot of people who were hired, but they do not have operational knowledge. There is also too much interference on day-to-day operations at the mine. There is disunity and internal fights over how the company must operate.”
Should ZCDC replaces Nyashanu this would be the third time the struggling diamond company would have changed its chief executive officer since formation in February.
