Missing diamonds I need my share’ This week Theatre in The Park brings you one -man play titled Missing diamonds I need my share’
The play is by veteran actor and playwright Silvanos Mudzvova and first stage at Parliament Building last week on Wednesday and stopped by state agency.
Mudzvova was later arrested by law enforcement agencies together with three journalists.
The four were detained at Harare Central Police station where they were profiled, have their identification numbers and address recorded.
The actor said he had invited Members of Parliament to come and watch his play which he also intends to stage at the Chinese Embassy and Mbada diamond company in Harare respectively.
Mudzvova’s one man play comes after head of state President Robert Mugabe’s statement that $15 billion worthy of diamonds revenue had gone missing from mining activities in the Marange and Chiadzwa districts.
The actor said he chose Wednesday to stage his play at Parliament Building because it is Question and Answer day but surprisingly the MPs have chose to go mum about the issue.
“I have seen it fit to stage my play politely to remind our policy makers (MPs) that $15 billion missing is a lot of money. It should be talked about until those who stole it are brought to book. “I have been arrested on several occasions and locking me up actually give me strength to stand up for human rights giving the voice through theatre.
Mudzvova is not new to police detention cells, two years ago he was arrested when he released a satirical film Kumasowe that talked about how the Zimbabwe Republic Police officers who wanted to ban the apostolic church sect church in Budiriro’ shigh density suburb were battered and ran for their dear life.
Four years ago he was arrested for his play The Final Push.
