Auditor General’s Report: Accountability Issues For The Diamond Company

IntroductionThe quest to bring improved transparency and accountability in the management of Marange diamonds – scandalously known for “missing $15 billion” birthed the Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company (ZCDC). As the Zimbabwe Environmental Law Association (ZELA), an organisation with solid interest in resource governance, we are compelled to sift the latest Auditor General’s report to have a better understanding of how well or bad is ZCDC managed for the benefit of all Zimbabweans.  After…See More

Knitting Sustainable Development from Mineral Revenue

Revenue generated by government is consumed by recurrent expenditure. leaving little resources to invest in health, education, clean and portable water. These struggles…See More

"Great work Mukasiri. It’s encouraging to see that work is being done to formalise the ASM sector which has been operating along large scale mining in Zimbabwe for as long as I can remember."

Mining Nuggets Of Wisdom From An Artisanal Miner

Introduction According to the Africa Mining Vison (AMV), Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining (ASM) is an integral part of mining.  The sector is critical for optimal exploitation of mineral resources because some deposits are not economically viable for large scale mining.

Cholera outbreak – a mediaeval disease, severe foreign currency shortages, inferior tax revenue inflows and high levels of corruption are all signs that mineral benefits are not shared with citizens.
