Chinese diamond mining company Anjin Investments has agreed to a 25 percent wage hike following a two-day strike last week by workers, according to Reuters.

"We had a strike where workers wanted their pay to be increased," director Munyaradzi Machacha was quoted as saying. "The workers have since gone back to work after they were awarded a 25 percent increase in both wages and salaries."

The company is the biggest miner operating in Zimbabwe’s controversial Marange diamond fields. It employs 1,500 locals and more than 200 Chinese workers.

In past strikes by employees, the management had previously been accused of unfair treatment and underpayment.
