Mugabe Could be Off The Hook on Missing U.S.$15 Billion

Former Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe will not appear before a Mines and Energy Parliamentary Committee investigating the looting and loss of diamond revenue amounting to U.S.$15 billion, the head of the committee, Temba Mliswa has said. On two occasions, Mugabe failed to appear before the committee without giving any reasons, prompting Parliament to write him a final letter.
