Zimbabwe Consolidation Diamond mining company (ZCDC) is in the process of renovating a laboratory block at Gandauta secondary School right in the heart of the Diamond mining fields of Chiadzwa. It has been decorated with Solar panels. According to the School Head, 30 computers will be donated on the official handover. The President is expected to grace the occasion which might take place probably on the 8th of November 2017 the day of the official opening of ZCDC. Twenty hectares is under rehabilitation according to Headman Chiadzwa who also took part in tree planting. I am reliably told he planted his Munyii tree an indigenous fruit tree. The ceremony took place two weeks ago with EMA present. The Lab is shown below MDT is following the developments with keen interest

This I think is in compliance with our call for rehabilitation on the areas they have exhausted mining and it’s a positive move.
