VETERAN theatre producer and actor Silvanos Mudzvova was on Wednesday arrested at Parliament Building in the capital for staging a one-man play titled Missing Diamonds, I Need My Share.
The award winning Mudzvova said the 30-minute play was inspired by President Robert Mugabe’s recent statements that about $15 billion raised from diamond sales was missing.
The missing money from diamond revenue has already caused a storm in the National Assembly, with opposition MPs demanding a probe of top government officials believed to have amassed wealth in suspicious circumstances.
Born in 1978 in Gutu, Masvingo, Mudzvova, a graduate of the Central School of Speech and Drama in the United Kingdom, has participated in several theatre productions, including Waiting for the Constitution that was written by Stephen Chifunyise.
