BACK­GROUND

The East African - - NEWS -

Last week, Tan­za­nian Pres­i­dent John Magu­fuli or­dered a re­view of a con­tract be­long­ing to Pe­tra Di­a­monds and also the allegations of un­der­de­clared di­a­mond ex­ports. Pe­tra’s suspension comes barely a week after Aca­cia min­ing an­nounced that it will be cut back op­er­a­tions at its largest mine, Bulyan­hulu, that will see un­der­ground ac­tiv­ity cease and pro­cess­ing of un­der­ground ore stopped in the next four weeks.
