By MacDonald Dzirutwe HARARE (Reuters) - Signs that Zimbabwe is relaxing its black economic empowerment drive could see a rise in British investments in the southern African nation, according to an embassy report, following an exodus of investors in recent years. Known as "indigenisation" in Zimbabwe, the empowerment policy aims to redress colonial-era imbalances by forcing foreign companies to sell majority domestic stakes to local black investors.
