Diaspora Kapita (DK) was formed in 2014 as a vehicle to enable investments by the Zimbabweans in diaspora in partnership with those at home. DK has investments in financial services, mining contracting, construction, and health services.
DK is an example of how the partnership of the Locals and the Diaspora can be harnessed. To create value for the two groups and develop Africa by creating jobs and contributing to solving Africa’s problems. The African Diaspora remit more than US$48 billion to their countries of origin and save about US$53 billion annual in the countries they are based. Tapping into this potential is a game changer for Africa. Zimbabwean Diaspora remit more than US$1,5 billion annually and in the last 15 years, they have remitted more than US$12 billion to Zimbabwe. The role of DK is to create a platform where Zimbabweans in the diaspora and those back home can co-invest and execute projects for the benefit of Zimbabweans.
