A widely shared photograph of a lone man, Fargio Marowa standing outside Zimbabwe’s parliament with a placard demanding answers to the country’s missing diamond billions has sparked anger after he was exposed as an intelligence operative working with dreaded CIO handlers.
Marowa, a retired police officer who runs a Tax Consultancy business ,Faggy Networks with his wife in Harare is also a know Makandiwa church member.
He was snapped on Wednesday wearing a green T-shirt and holding up his placard in front of police officers at the entrance to the parliamentary precinct in the capital, Harare.
His placard , professionally done mentioned the US$15 billion that President Robert Mugabe recently said had been lost to diamond firms mining in the Chiadzwa diamond fields. “Iripi?” the placard asked in Shona, meaning “Where is it?”
Both his Placards and T-shirts have been confirmed as printed by the Ministry of Information Department. Not only that they resembled the templates previously used at Zanu PF rallies but he, Marowa has produced songs and sang praises for ageing 92 year old Mugabe .
Zimbabwean activist, Itai Dzamara, who mounted a one-man protest metres away from parliament in Africa Unity Square, was abducted in March 2015 and has not been seen since.
