Zimbabweans will never be safe with Chihuri as Police Commissioner – MDC-T
HARARE – Police commissioner general Augustine Chihuri is a risk and Zimbabweans can never feel safe as long as he remains at the helm of the police force, MDC spokesperson Douglas Mwonzora has said.
“We have experienced an upsurge of violence perpetrated by Zanu PF but there has been no meaningful reaction from the police,” said Mwonzora while addressing a press conference at the party’s headquarters at Harvest House yesterday adding that his party can no longer rely on the police force to deal effectively with politically-motivated violence in the country.
Mwonzora told journalists that several members of the infamous Chipangano outfit have been attacking businesses owned by people perceived to be aligned to the mainstream MDC party but none of the members of the vigilante group had been arrested.
“In dealing with issues of violence in Mbare we can never rely on the police. We all know that Chipangano is being funded by Zanu PF’s Tendai Savanhu. He even confessed that if he had his way, his group would murder honourable (Ian) Kay but the police never acted,” Mwonzora said adding: “We do not find the Zimbabwe Republic Police reliable. The people of Zimbabwe will never be safe as long as Chihuri is police chief.”
