In an interview with The Chronicle, Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines and Energy chairperson Temba Mliswa said they have summoned Vice President Kembo Mohadi in his capacity as former State Security as well as Home Affairs Minister, former Defence Minister Dr Sydney Sekeramayi and former State Security and Presidential Affairs Minister, Mr Didymus Mutasa to answer questions on the alleged disappearance of $15 billion worth of diamonds from Chiadzwa. The three are expected to appear before the Committee on Monday next week.
Mliswa said the summoning of current and former high ranking government officials does not mean they are guilty, but is only part of investigations. He also said the Committee is working to conclude investigations and come up with recommendations. Said Mliswa:
So we have asked for the former Minister of Home Affairs now Vice President Mohadi, former Minister State Security as well as Presidential Affairs Didymus Mutasa and the former Minister of Defence Sydney Sekeramayi. We are not saying that they are guilty but we would like to find out whether they knew about the concessions and who was running the concessions because all this information is very necessary. They have been summoned, they have received letters already and its done. VP Mohadi, Dr Sekeramayi and Didymus Mutasa have received their letters. They are definitely coming.
