Youth in Nyanga however expressed great concern at the rate at which diamonds were being siphoned to smooch the personal interests of a few in Zanu Pf at the expense of thousands peasantified locals who are reeling under a myriad of challenges.
Great worries were expressed over the Minister of Mines, Mpofu’s wealth which has since been exponentially ballooning and have called for him to be thoroughly investigated.
The locals also expressed concern over the exploitation of diamond resources to construct a Zanu Pf conference center in Gweru while their children lack adequate educational infrastructure.
