Parliamentary Committee on Mines dissolved

By Business Reporter – Tuesday 19 February 2019

HARARE (Mining Index) – THE Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines and Energy was yesterday dissolved following allegations of intended corruption involving a $400 000 bribe.

Norton legislator Temba Mliswa together with three other members of the committee are alleged to have demanded a $400 000 carrot, that is $100 000 each, from James Ross Goddard, a local businessman seeking to mine in Hwange.

Parliament’s Committee of Standing Rules and Orders chaired by Speaker of the National Assembly Jacob Mudenda is set to unveil a Privileges Committee to investigate such allegations.

On February 7, 2019, Mliswa stepped down as the Chairperson of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee following these accusations. ENDS//
