Former President Robert Mugabe today did not turn up for the ‘US$15 billion hearing’ after being summoned for the second time by the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines and Energy.
The hearing sought to get an insight into the alleged loss of US$15 billion worth of diamonds revenue during his tenure in office.
The committee resolved to write final summons to him asking the former president to appear before it without fail on the 11th of June.
Mr Mugabe was first summoned to appear before the committee on the 23rd of May at 0900 hours. When he did not turn up, the committee wrote him another letter asking him to appear on the 28th of May (today) at 1400 hours.
The Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines and Energy has summoned several former ministers, seating ministers, high ranking security officials and all those who were part of the diamonds mining operations with a view to getting to the bottom of the matter.
