Zimbabwe Police Yet To Serve Summons on Lawmaker Probing Diamond Operations


Lawmaker Mare said he was encouraged by Prime Minister Tsvangirai’s statement to Zimbabwe International Trade Fair Participants that corruption and smuggling in the mining sector are hindering economic recovery

Though Zimbabwean police said Wednesday they were seeking to serve Chiredzi South Member of Parliament Moses Mare with a summons related to his panel's probe into Marange diamond field operations, the lawmaker had yet to receive the summons on Thursday.

Mare told VOA that he spent Wednesday at his Chiredzi home, but no officers came to serve a summons.

He said he was encouraged by Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s statement yesterday to participants in the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair in Bulawayo that corruption and smuggling in the mining sector are hindering the national economic recovery.

Political analyst Farai Maguwu of the Center for Research and Development in Mutare said the prime minister should take stronger action against corruption or history will judge him and his government harshly.
