Norton Member of Parliament and Chairperson of the Mines Portfolio Committee chairperson, Temba Mliswa is being investigated by a parliamentary probe team.
Speaker of Parliament Jacob Mudenda announced the decision to set up the probe team on Thursday. A motion of privilege was moved by Makoni South MP Misheck Mataranyika (Zanu PF) who said:
"During the period that the four MPs allegedly met Goddard, the Mines Committee was doing an enquiry into the operations of Hwange Colliery."
"The allegations are very serious and injurious to the reputation of the MPs, the committee and Parliament, and in that regard, the allegations made constitute breach and contempt of Parliament.
However, in raising this matter, I am not saying that the MPs are guilty, but simply to provide the MPs with an opportunity to clear their names and protect their integrity and that of Parliament."
