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.
