MPs want Mines perm sec fired for alleged abuse of the country’s diamond revenue

Posted by Tayana

The Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines led by Daniel Shumba, yesterday recommended that the Civil Service Commission fires Mines secretary Francis Gudyanga within a month for his alleged abuse of the country’s diamond revenue.

The committee accuses Gudyanga of refusing to give them polygraph test results of Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company (ZCDC) managers when they requested them and for that they say he should be charged with contempt of Parliament.  Other charges levelled against Gudyanga include; abusing $4 million, which MMCZ was instructed to pay to Pedstock, paying himself $35 000 as board fees in violation of the MMCZ Act and handpicking an audit firm to scrutinise MMCZ books, compromising the company’s financial records.
