Mudzvova's '$15 billion play' comes to Byo

BULAWAYO - Protest actor Sylvanos Mudzvova will take his one-man play titled Missing Diamonds: I Want My Share to Bulawayo on May 5.

Mudzvova, who was briefly arrested two weeks ago just six minutes into the performance of the political satire outside Parliament, is coming thanks to the support availed by Nhimbe Trust in conjunction with  Africalia.

Nhimbe Trust spokesperson Ronald Moyo told the Daily News that the staging of Missing Diamonds: I Want My Share was part of Bulawayo arts education organisation’s cultural decentralisation initiative.

“The aim of the Nhimbe Cultural Decentralisation is to support the craft of both emerging and established writers as part of our commitment to developing new work and audiences for Zimbabwean theatre.

“Come and witness award-winning actor Silvanos Mudzvova as he demands his share of the looted money. This is Mudzova’s first one-man play. He is famed for his hard hitting theatre plays and films,” Moyo said.

The play, which has already received two international invitations, was created after President Robert Mugabe openly admitted that the country lost $15 billion to diamond mining companies in Chiyadzwa.

In the play, Mudzvova asks questions to the government, Chinese embassy and diamond companies to give him his share of the missing $15 billion.
