Higher and Tertiary Education minister Jonathan Moyo has picked a fresh fight with top army bosses, challenging them to account for the missing $15 billion diamond revenue, which President Robert Mugabe has claimed could not be accounted for.

Moyo, on Twitter, yesterday challenged Major General Douglas Nyikayaramba to help unravel the mystery surrounding the missing diamond money, after the latter told Parliament on Monday that corruption by senior government officials was a security threat.

The minister's statement insinuated that top army officers could know more about the missing revenue, as the military was heavily involved in diamond mining activities in Marange. Moyo and his deputy, Godfrey Gandawa, are currently under investigation for allegedly defrauding the Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund (Zimdef) of over $400 000.
