PARLY CONCEDE DEFEAT AS CRAFTY MUGABE PULLS A NO SHOW AGAIN
Parly yesterday decided to recuse former President Mr Robert Mugabe from being in the hot seat over the missing $15 billion worth of the Marange mined diamonds. Mugabe already failed to show up to the hearing twice and the third time was no charm.
Presenting a committee report in the National Assembly last week on the diamond sector in Zimbabwe for the period 2009-2016, Mr Mliswa said after consultations, it had been resolved to excuse Mr Mugabe from attending.
“The former President, His Excellency Cde RG Mugabe, was unable to attend at the appointed hour and the committee was due to meet to consider summoning him as a measure of last resort but after consultations with the Honourable Speaker, he was recused from attending,” said Mr Mliswa.
The committee then resolved that the next Parliament should pursue the $15 billion and summon Mr Mugabe to explain himself.
