Senior govt officials, including Zim VP 'to appear before Parliament' about $15bn diamond scandal.

Several senior government officials have reportedly been summoned by Zimbabwe's parliamentary portfolio committee on mines and energy over the missing $15-billion diamond revenue.

According to reports, former President Robert Mugabe, announced in 2015 that $15-billion of diamonds were spirited out of Marange, the dusty fields more than four hours' drive from the capital Harare which were the site of a bloody military clampdown in 2008.

The privately owned NewsDay newspaper reported that the mines and energy portfolio committee which was chaired by independent lawmaker, Temba Mliswa, had summoned Vice President Kembo Mohadi – a state security minister at the time – finance minister Patrick Chinamasa and former police boss Augustine Chihuri to give evidence before it.
