Zimbabwe's former president Robert Mugabe today again failed to attend a parliamentary hearing where he was due to give evidence on corruption in the diamond mining industry. Lawmakers want to question him over his 2016 claim that Zimbabwe lost $15 billion in revenue due to corruption and foreign exploitation in the diamond sector. The 94-year-old, who was ousted from office in November after 37 years in power, also failed to attend the hearing last week without giving reasons. "We were expecting former president Robert Mugabe to appear before us as a result of a letter that had been written to him," Temba Mliswa, mines committee chair and an independent member of parliament, told journalists. "He is not being prosecuted, it is only a matter of us hearing from him and him contributing whatever he has to us." The committee has offered to interview Mugabe at his residence, Mliswa added. Mugabe ruled Zimbabwe from 1980 until he was ousted from office in November following a brief ...

Former Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe today failed to turn up for a parliamentary hearing where he was due to give evidence on corruption in the diamond mining industry.

Meghalaya’s run of black diamond continues unabatedly 21.5.2018 Meghalaya Times

Staff Reporter
SHILLONG, May 20: Uncontrolled extraction of coal is a reality in the state and the movement of coal laden trucks is only proving this truth, which is something that is coming directly from the horse’s mouth.
It is being alleged that this rampant run of the black diamond is going on unabatedly since the state police at the behest of the political establishment and even the state government is giving the “coalmen” a free run.
 Almost daily, trucks are plying between the coal belts and other destinations in the state with consignments as one can see them openly in the Guwahati – Shillong National Highway, especially in the Ri Bhoi district of the state.
