Critics Pan New Zimbabwe Diamond Policy

26 june 2012

Days after the government of Zimbabwe announced a new federal policy for the country's diamond industry, diverse voices are criticizing the plan, saying it will not significantly affect the situation on the ground, reported. Voice of America news reports that local political observers, economists and civil society activists such as the Youth in Mining Council of Zimbabwe have dismissed the new diamond policy, claiming that the militarization of the sector will prevent any real change from taking place.
Critics have countered that the sector should be opened up to private companies instead of the state- and military-owned corporations that currently control the industry.
All Africa also reported that Zimbabwe Deputy Miniter of Mines told the country's parliament last week that although Kimberley Process member countries sell their diamonds on average for between $200 and $800 per carat, Zimbabwe's diamonds fetch an average of between $40 and $100 per carat, and that some diamonds are only sold for about $9 per carat.
