The mining sector is very important in South Africa. Diamonds and gold made South Africa a rich country. However, everything has its own price…
I’ll quote this short text from Wikipedia and leave it without a comment:
“The mining and distribution of natural diamonds are subjects of frequent controversy such as concerns over the sale of blood diamonds or conflict diamonds by African paramilitary groups. The diamond supply chain is controlled by a limited number of powerful businesses, and is also highly concentrated in a small number of locations around the world.”
If you haven’t watched it yet, I can recommend here a movie from 2006 – Blood Diamond.
