Addressing relocated Arda Transau villagers, Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company (ZCDC) officials and Information minister Christopher Mushohwe, Mines Minister Walter Chidhakwa claimed that some diamond companies wanted to assassinate him when diamond mining was stopped in Chiadzwa.
After I stopped them (diamond companies), they reported to other ministers, but the ministers referred them back to me. Some even cried in my office and I had to give them tissue paper. Some even suggested taking me out, but God protects us. I told my security (details) that God protects. I knew that they were going to lose their court cases. You can’t be a doctor without a licence.
