Funding Zimbabwe diamond mines risky

Rand Merchant Bank (RMB) a leading South African bank said diamond mining ventures in Zimbabwe are difficult to fund because of the high political risk and uncertainty in the country.

Zimbabwe has of late rescinded the licence of a diamond company and threatened not to renew those of others.

These policies leave mining firms unable to complete the projects the money was borrowed for and hence are unable to pay their financiers back.
