How to Rob Africa - People & Power - Al Jazeera English

How to Rob Africa - People & Power - Al Jazeera English:

"When these diamonds came, they came as a God-given gift. So we thought now we are going to benefit from jobs, infrastructure, we thought maybe our roads were going to improve, so that generations and generations will benefit from this, not one individual. But what is happening, honestly, honestly it's a shame!"

What is happening is actually something of a mystery because though the mines are clearly in operation and producing billions of dollars worth of gems every year, little if any of it has ever been put into Zimbabwe's state coffers.

More and more citizens from many countries are awakening. They own their country. But somebody else is getting the country's wealth.
