ARMED ROBBERS STEAL DIAMOND ORE FROM MARANGE RESOURCES
01 January 2012

Ten armed robbers reportedly stole 400 kilograms of concentrated diamond ore potentially worth millions of dollars from Zimbabwe's Marange diamond field.

The robbers, armed with an AK-47 assault rifle and slingshots, pounced on a truck belonging to Marange Resources, overpowered two security guards and disappeared with their loot, reports the state-run Herald.

Manicaland police spokesman Inspector Leonard Chabata confirmed the robbery to the newspaper, saying that it happened after the truck transporting the ore to the miner's processing plant broke down.

The newspaper also quoted Manicaland Assistant Police Commissioner David Mahonya as saying that the police's minerals unit was investigating the robbery.

"This is a serious case in which the State has lost revenue through theft. Our mission is to recover the looted diamonds and make sure that what belongs to the people of Zimbabwe is brought back," said Mahonya, as quoted by the Herald.

According to Voice of America, Deputy Mines Minister Gift Chimanikire said he was not aware of the reported armed robbery and believed that such an incident could only be an inside job.
