ZIMBABWE SENDS STUDENTS TO CHINA FOR DIAMOND TRAINING; LOCAL COLLEGE CLAIMS NO ACCESS TO ROUGH FOR TRAINING
27 July 2016
The owner of Zimbabwe's local college for diamond manufacturing training, Lovemore Kurotwi, has reportedly sent a letter to Zimbabwe's Secretary of Mines, Francis Gudyanga, questioning the government's commitment to developing the local industry, reports NewsDay.

Kurotwi is quoted by the news source stating that "We feel you have turned a blind eye to the local industry and are behaving as if the local industry does not exist." He further chastised the Ministry of Mines for making the effort to visit Chinese factories, while not making any efforts for visit Zimbabwe's local cutting and polishing companies.  

An agreement forged between China and Zimbabwe allows for training of 300 Zimbabwean students over a period of three years in diamond cutting and polishing in China. A Chinese company which took in a batch of 25 students from Zimbabwe for training has reportedly been allocated 10,000 carats of diamonds annually for three years by the Zimbabwe government for training purposes.

In his letter, Kurotwi reportedly complained that his request to government for 15,000 carats of diamonds to facilitate the training programmes at his Zimbabwe Diamond College was turned down, and that the college was struggling to access diamonds for that purpose.
