Prominent Harare gold dealer Pedzai Sakupwanya, popularly known as Scott, has been elected chairman of Gold Buyers Association of Zimbabwe following a meeting held at the Zimbabwe Miners Federation (Z.M.F) Head Office in Msasa on Friday.
The game changing meeting was attended by licensed gold buyers across the country.
“My association will be working with gold buyers across the country to ensure that all buyers are taking their productions to Fidelity Printers Refinery,” said Sakupwanya.
“We hope that the prices around the country will be at par to eradicate bogus buyers.”
The association’s Treasurer General Raj Skorus said the formation of the association was the first step towards the eradication and elimination of leakage sponsored competition which was prejudicing small scale and artisanal miners.
He added that quality of communication within the buyer’s community would improve.
“The first thing we want is solidifying good network place and avoiding any confusion and inside competition. The idea behind this association is not only to have a community that is heard but also to provide outreach to the people that are not capable as others. Having one solidified union, having inside competition will definitely help in improving the quality of community and the quality of communication” Skorus said
