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.

  2. TRULY SPEAKING, WHY WAS THIS MAN ARRESTED???

    THESE STUPID OVERZEALOUS POLICE SHOULD GET THEIR PRIORITIES RIGHT. THIS IS DOWNRIGHT DISGUSTING AND SHAMEFUL. THEY CALL THEMSELVES POLICEMEN AND WOMEN WHEN THEY ARE BOOT LICKING IDIOTS WHO HERO WARSHIP MUGABE INSTEAD OF DOING PROPER LAW ENFORCEMENT AND ARREST MUGABE AND HIS SYCOPHANTS FOR RUINING THE COUNTRY AND BEING A THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY!!!!

    THEY MUST BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES!!!!!

  3. What became of Sir Wickednell?

  4. WHICH MEANS THERE IS SOMETHING SMELLING A FISH ABOUT THIS $15 BILLION MISSING WORTH OF DIAMONDS I DO NO THING SILVANOS MUDZOVA WAS GOING TO BE ARRESTED FOR EXPRESSING HIS CONCERN ABOUT THIS MATTER WHICH IS AFFECTING THE WHOLE NATION THAT SHOWS THE President of Zimbabwe Mugabe knows something. that is why he ordered his security police to ARREST SILVANOS MUDZOVA IN ADDITION THE President was just misinforming the nation when he himself told on his birth day party speech that there is $15 billion worth of diamonds which went missing Zimbabwe did not get nothing also to recall the report which was issued to the President by the Ex- FINANCE Minister Mr Tendai Biti he did informed the President in time that the diamonds were being looted but the feed back from the President was that why are you concerned about diamonds what about Platinum. from such a response from some one of his position what does this means to his people who have elected him as loyal leader to lead the whole nation. does not this shows that the President is a corrupt leader and he is not a trust worth man to lead this nation of which if he was a trust worth he should have not even wasted to ask for the investigation to be carried out

  5. No there are theater halls to do your drama , and not somewhere close to a security zone, what if
    you plant a bomb there. Tsvaka mbiri nezvimwe, your drama will not bring the missing money, go hang and all those who support you.

          I think you and your Phyllis (or is it Phallus) know where the $15 000 000 000 is. How can you afford to give people $4140 just for getting on your website?
