Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines and Energy chairperson Temba Mliswa said they are prepared to meet former President Robert Mugabe at his Blue Roof residence in Borrowdale so that he answers questions on the missing $15 billion diamond revenue.
Mliswa said it was now up to Clerk of Parliament Kennedy Chokuda to make a formal request to Mugabe. Said Mliswa:
Parliament is prepared to give the former Head of State respect and to meet him at his Blue Roof mansion because he is old. It is now up to the Parliament administration to get communication to Mugabe because his evidence will be critical in terms of us concluding our report.
