diamonds scam.jpg5 diamond bosses who are facing charges of fraud have been remanded to this Thursday.


Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation’s suspended Chief Executive Officer, Dominic Mubaiwa, John Tichaona Muhonde, Gloria Mawarire, Ashton Sibusiso Ndlovu and Mark Tsomondo were placed on US$2 000 bail each last week.


They were ordered to surrender their passports, report daily at Harare CID Minerals Section, not to travel 40km outside the city centre without the authority of the investigating officer, to reside at their given addresses and not to interfere with the witnesses.

The 5 are accused of conniving to misrepresent to government that Core Mining and Mineral Resources, a company in which one of them is a major shareholder, had the capacity to exploit diamonds in Chiadzwa.
