The six – Dominic Mubaiwa, Tichaona Muhonde, Gloria Mawarire, Ashton Ndlovu, Mark Tsomondo and Lovemore Kurotwi – are still in police custody as investigations continue.


The six are reported to have been arrested on Tuesday this week.


Diamond mining in Zimbabwe has drawn a lot of attention worldwide as reports of illegal activities meant to prejudice the government continue to be unearthed at the diamond fields.


Recently, another mining company, African Consolidated Resources (ACR) dragged the government to court after the cancellation of its license which was reportedly acquired through misrepresentation of facts.
