‘ Police Commissioner-General Augustine Chihuri sings for his supper’

POLICE Commissioner-General Augustine Chihuri yesterday took his bootlicking to new depths in his congratulatory message to President Robert Mugabe on his successful re-election.

Report by Everson Mushava

In a praise-singing message published yesterday, Chihuri described Mugabe as a visionary and steadfast leader who, with the help of God, would steer “Zimbabwe and her people to greater heights”.

“Your Excellency, the Zimbabwe Republic Police renews its pledge and commitment to fulfil your endeavours for a better Zimbabwe,” said Chihuri, whose term of office expires this year.

Mugabe was last week declared winner in the July 31 harmonised elections after garnering 61% of the presidential vote.

MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai and other political parties that took part in the election have rejected the outcome of the poll claiming it was rigged.

The utterances by Chihuri fly in the face of calls by Sadc for security sector re-alignment and for securocrats not to dabble in politics.

Chihuri and Defence Forces Commander General Constantine Chiwenga recently attacked Tsvangirai inferring he was a malcontent who they would not salute in the event he defeated Zanu PF in any election.

Zimbabwe’s new Constitution calls for security forces to be professional and non-partisan and Sadc leaders recently asked security forces to publicly undertake to uphold the Constitution.

“On behalf of the Zimbabwe Republic Police, Deputy Commissioner-Generals, Commissioners of police, senior police officers, officers, and members and indeed on my own behalf and that of my family, I would like to extend my profound congratulatory messages to you, Your Excellency, the First Lady and your entire family, on your landslide victory and that of the revolutionary party Zanu PF in the just-ended harmonised elections,” Chihuri said.

“Of particular interest to the whole nation is your re-election as President of the Republic of Zimbabwe in the face of adversity and concerted effort by the West who are trying to undermine and rubbish the election in their quest to further their interests.”

Chihuri and other security organisation leaders have been accused of siding with Mugabe and clamping down on the veteran leader’s opponents.

“On this particular occasion, allow me to express my admiration of your vision and steadfast determination to economically empower previously marginalised Zimbabweans, a stance which shall definitely set the path to prosperity and well-being of the citizenry. Indeed the people of Zimbabwe have emphatically demonstrated their faith in your revolutionary leadership and your unequivocal pro-people policies which have continually transformed their lives. Your vision, Your Excellency, is shared by all of us,” Chihuri said.

He added: “We are thus optimistic that the Almighty God shall, like He did to Moses, continue to favour you with the divine wisdom to navigate through the imperialist-driven and transient challenges and steer Zimbabwe and her people to greater heights.”

  1. stupid policeman

  2. Do not generalise issues here, just state that MDC T and Makoni have refused to accept the results. as I understand it, Makoni is doing it in his personal capacity, MKD disowned him!

  3. Ahhh, Agasteni anopenga who doesnt know. I think these are side-effects ye mapiritsi, maARV.

    Jst like his very very old master this Militia Commander thinks the ZRP will die when he leaves.

    These people are not answerable to Zimbabweans and reject reforms. Problem is if they die before explaining their wealth, their beneficiaries will lose it.

    Its a matter of time, yes, fast approaching time. Sons pay for the sins of their fathers.

    1. Chihuri is a thief. He should be in jail. Temva Mliswa was right. He used to get money from well known car thieves. From the days of Royal car hire until recently. This idiotic man just knows stealing and thievery

  4. to a certain extent the media has hardned these generals. you always try to find something negative about them why at least he is a zimbabwean what of some diplomats who openly campaigns for certain parties and strategise for them and l have never heard u cal for diplomat reforms. u also sing for your supper

    1. stand up and tell me what you want to say !!

  5. Thieves, we never voted for thieves.You stole this election, you have been stealing before and you have the audacity to congratulate thievery.

    Chihuri, act like a normal personal.Anyway your personality just tells me of a real malcontent capable of destruction.

    We will get there , check this space.Your deeds will haunt your generation.

    Come on you peopleof this great land of milk and honey, this is just a congraturatory message to the winner of the just ended harmonized election held on 31st july 2013.

    Does our new constitution criminalize uniformed forces for sending congraturatory messages to the president elect. If tsvangirai had won the election, and chihuri and others were to send the same messages, would you be complaining or you have written a head line titled “Generals acknowledge and agree to salute the new President elect”

    Reporting should not further divide and cause animosity among peace loving zimbabweans.

Where is the reconstruction everyone was looking forward to c, at least Chihuri knows where is coming from, i m sorry for day dreamers. Muchatsva moyo, kufa muchiridza tsamwa. Maivepi pamaibirwa. Kurara nezamu mukamwa ka?!!!!!?

  14. Chinotimba muParamente…………………………………… joke of my moment. All Zanu Pf Fools, Stop mokin our intelligence, integrity,

  15. Vese vari kucomplaina makavhota here? Sorry you pple, l dont support ZANU bt you disappoint me coz you dont want 2 vote. Neither do you want 2 mobilise your friends & relatives 2 vote. Mobilise one another 2 register 2 vote now for 2018.

  16. for how long has he been the top cop? sine 93 i think. thats 20 yrs now, if u ask me. maybe just like in ZANU Pf there aint any other cop who can fill his shoes. stupid? dont think so. he just knows from which side his bread is buttered. if ever there was one man who has ruined the Organisation, then such is he.

  17. our general heroes are more brightly decorated than those of Burma. ever been there pycho? so many stars and awards decorating everywhere. absolutely marvelous!

  18. I know nothing! Ask Sir Lancelot when he returns. His cook at high school said he fought real war over there. Fierce ol timer I understand.

  24. Everyone has to eat. Singing for your supper hasn’t been outlawed. Will newsday go out of business when Mdc cease to exist.

  25. Prince of lions

    The government says the vote is in your hand, so we chop off your hand. No more hand no more voting. Long sleeve or short sleeve. Chop him. Is this the direction you want?

  26. who doesn’t sing for their supper, even you are mr journalist

  27. its a bit disgusting and nauseating the apetite the Newsday has for reporting articles about the ZRP or Cde Chihuri. interestingly, there were more than 30 congratulory remarks in that newspaper, just wondering how this particular one is newsworthy. its true the Newsday is also singing for its supper. but for how long shall you always be an apendage of mdc. its time you give readers value for money
