Mines Minister Hon Chitando said Karo will be fully compliant with the indigenization and empowerment legislation from tge start. Interestingly the deal could have been sealed in 2013.
Tharisa Plc came to set up the project but were frustrated by a number of things including corruption.
In January the Tharisa boss met President Mnangagwa and today they have penned the largest investment deal in the mining industry in Zimbabwe.
Karo Resources Official said that this project has a potential to grow Zimbabwe’s GDP by 20% and employ 15000 when fully operational.
Zimbabwe is getting there slowly and going through a new economic phase. It is attracting more investors since the ouster of the former President Robert Mugabe. The government’s commitment to nip corruption in the bud has also changed the face of the economy which has been spiralling downwards.
The country is rich in natural resources and can only find its economic prowness if it is run by trusted people. Corruption and looting of these natural resources has been the order of the day. It has been eating and shredding the moral fibre of the country.
