The Centre for Natural Resource Governance (CNRG) and Chiadzwa Community Development Trust (CCDT) are deeply concerned that government is going ahead with merging Marange diamond companies without consulting key stakeholders.
Government has finally acknowledged that diamond mining companies in Marange have not been transparent.
This means consolidating the same companies into one unit will not improve transparency since the same players will import their corrupt practices into the new entity, says a statement by the two non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
The Marange communities stand to be severely affected by the decision.
