Marange Resources Names New Chair

06 march 2012

Marange Resources has appointed Tshinga Dube, a former chief executive officer (CEO) of Zimbabwe Defense Industries (ZDI), as its chairperson, with immediate effect, Rapaport reported.
A Russian trained former soldier, Dube is a senior ZANU-PF politician and is a member of the party's supreme decision making body between congresses. He is also the director of several non- listed companies, according to the Financial Gazette.
Dube is not new to mining, though his past involvement in the sector was restricted to an advisory role where he served as a board member of the Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation (ZMDC) for eight years.
"Given the important role diamonds are going to play in reviving our economy, I consider this appointment to be an important national responsibility which I shall try to execute diligently with my colleagues and my seniors," Dube told the Financial Gazette.
Marange Resources is owned by the ZMDC and operates one of four concessions mining at Zimbabwe’s Marange fields.
