• Voter paralysis

    With so much tilting voters against change, democratic reason is the loser, says Solly Moeng.

  • The power of perseverance

    True grit is a reliable predictor of who will achieve success in life, says Ian Mann.

  • It's the system

Zim starts own mining firm

Harare - Cabinet in Zimbabwe has approved the draft framework for establishing a company to spearhead exploration of minerals throughout the country, Zimbabwe's Herald Online reported on Tuesday.

The company, to be called the Zimbabwe Mineral Exploration Corporation, would enable the government to know the extent of the country's mineral wealth and reap maximum benefits from the resources.

Mines and Mining Development deputy minister Gift Chimanikire told New Ziana that the Attorney General's office was now drafting the Statutory Instruments needed to give legal effect to establishment of the company.

"We have taken the matter before the cabinet committee on legislation and it has been approved," he said.

"Now we are waiting for the AG's office, which is currently working on drafting the necessary statutory Instruments. Once the AG is done... we will then float a tender for partners because we need a private player to partner us."

Chimanikire was, however, unable to give a timeline when the company would be operational.
