THE Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines and Energy has raised concern over the "careless manner" in which Government has handled the mining and marketing of the Chiadzwa diamonds. This was after it emerged yesterday that Mbada Diamond Mining Company wanted to clandestinely auction diamonds mined at Chiadzwa without the Minerals Marketing Corporation of Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation and the Police Minerals Unit’s knowledge.
Submissions made by various Government officials before the committee also indicated that the Mines Ministry granted Mbada diamond marketing rights.
