Politics and Society President Magufuli tightens security around tanzanite mine with a 24km wall

Tanzanian President John Magufuli inaugurated a 24km wall built around the country’s tanzanite mines to prevent the smuggling of the precious stones. Magufuli has made moves to secure and protect the mining industry. Last year the Tanzanian government seized diamonds worth $15 million because they were undervalued.
