Zimbabwe's president kicks out private diamond miners, nationalizes industry: Watch out for screams from Wall Street press about how Mugabe (Zimbabwe's president) is a 'dictator'

HARARE, Zimbabwe, Feb. 22 (UPI) — Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe on Monday ordered the expulsion of eight foreign diamond mining companies and turned over all mining operations to the newly formed, government-run Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Co.

Several companies abandoned their equipment, including: Anjin Investments Ltd., the Diamond Mining Co., Jinan Mining Ltd., Kusena Diamonds, Marange Resources Ltd. and Mbada Diamonds. These organizations were invited to nationalize their assets but they chose to stay as private entities and give up whatever little political capital was built up.
