Diamond Exploration Expected In Matobo

Diamond Exploration Expected In Matobo

An unidentified company is set to conduct explorations for diamonds in Beula, Matobo District, local leaders have told CITE.

The councillor for the area, Madalaboy Ndebele, told the publication that a company that came to establish if diamonds could be found in the area was given the go-ahead by the chief and the headman but the people are yet to return. Said Ndebele:

There are people who came wanting to do research to establish if there are diamonds and we gave them a go-ahead with Chief Malaba and headmen in Ward 5, Beula.

They said they would come and do explorations and then chat the way forward but they have not come back to me.

We are still waiting for them. It’s true that people brought that up at the meeting and I told them that they were exaggerating the issue.

There is no reality in that; diamonds have not been discovered yet. Once it comes true, I will tell them.

The explorers can come anytime. Diamonds have not been discovered yet but they suspect they could be there.

Meanwhile, Headman Edward Ndlovu told CITE that the issue of Beula diamonds was still a rumour to him. He said:

To tell you the truth, I don’t want to lie to you; I haven’t received that information.

I have just heard rumours from people but I don’t have anything concrete. We are however awaiting to see who those miners are because we also have our own children with money to do that work. Those diamonds should benefit us as a community.

Zim never learn same tactic that was used by SA Debeers to mine Diamonds in Chiyadzwa citing they were doing soil sample whilst they were actually mining diamonds and smuggle it to SA. Why can't our own geologists be engaged. Nxa
