A diamond cutting and polishing school based in Harare, is set to open two additional schools in Bulawayo and Mutare before year-end, reports the Herald.

"We opened our learning centre in Harare last year with the co-operation of MMCZ and due to the demand of such institutes we have decided to open other centres in the two major cities by September. We felt that it is better to equip the youths in Zimbabwe so that they learn about the uniqueness of local diamonds and be able to distinguish them from those found in other countries. The institute is keen on equipping youths with skills that they can use to get jobs," says Braitwood group chief executive officer Mr Bernard Mutanga.
