Chihuri collapses

POLICE Commissioner-General Augustine Chihuri collapsed in front of President Robert Mugabe causing panic among several Cabinet ministers, aides and thousands of people present at a police graduation parade at Morris Deport in Harare yesterday.

MOSES MATENGA

Chihuri, a close Mugabe ally, collapsed immediately after Mugabe’s 15-minute speech, forcing aides and other senior police officials standing at the VIP tent into action before the police chief was stretchered off to a nearby waiting room for medical attention.

Chihuri was resuscitated by medical practitioner and Lands and Rural Resettlement minister Douglas Mombeshora and he had to apologise to Mugabe for the “mishap” soon after his return to the VIP tent.

Immediately after his collapse, Chihuri’s deputy Godwin Matanga took over his seat next to Mugabe, while his boss was receiving first aid as several people jostled to try and catch a glimpse of what was taking place.

The Police Commissioner-General only re-appeared more than 30 minutes later and accompanied Mugabe for a group photo with the graduands.

The police boss, who arrived with his wife, had accompanied Mugabe while inspecting the parade for more than 30 minutes and stood while the officers were marching and showcasing different skills.

Chihuri was appointed police commissioner in an acting capacity in 1991 and became substantive Commissioner in 1993.

The Police Commissioner-General has been rewarded with a contract renewal over 13 times since 1997 becoming the longest police chief with 23 years to his credit at the helm of the force.

In his speech, Mugabe warned those threatening to stage demonstrations that the “full wrath of the law” would catch up with them.

Mugabe, making his second public appearance after his recent trip to Singapore for medical attention, appeared fit and calm, telling the police graduates that they should ensure people live in harmony and thwart all forms of violence.

“We want to see our people living in harmony, regardless of their varied social or political inclinations. Of course, we may hold varying views on a number of issues, be they social or political,” the President said. “We may even differ in opinion, but that should never make us resort to the use of violence to settle our differences.”

In apparent reference to threats by MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai and his opposition party to stage demonstrations in protest against allegedZanu PF misrule, Mugabe said the police would deal with them if they dared incite or engage in protests.

“I, therefore, warn all those who perpetrate violence, incite or engage in illegal protests that they should be prepared to face the full wrath of the law,” he said.
Tsvangirai, on several occasions, told his supporters not to be afraid, but to take to the streets against the failure by the Zanu PF government to provide solutions to the country’s deepening economic crisis.
Mugabe warned senior government officials, parastatal bosses and local authority chiefs against engaging in corruption.
“It is sad to note that corruption continues to rear its ugly head among service institutions in the country, thereby militating against our country’s economic and social development,” he said.
“Our people are denied timely quality services in government ministries, parastatals, State enterprises and local authorities where corruption and other underhand dealings have become endemic.”
To this end, Mugabe said Cabinet ministers have been assigned to take full responsibility of parastatals and State enterprises which fall under their portfolios to ensure that those fingered in corrupt activities were brought to book.
He said the police had an “onerous task of plucking out undesirable elements including, if not beginning with those within their rank and file, that are inclined to criminal propensities”.
Several Zanu PF ministers, among them Senior minister of State in the President’s office Simon Khaya Moyo and Presidential Affairs minister Didymus Mutasa, attended the pass out-parade of 651 recruits who underwent a six-month training session.

  1. He only says so if its zimbabweans who are fed up with his government ,if its zanu and war veterans singing praise of him and toy toying no one will touch them people are killed and beaten everyday as long as they dont have a zanu background noone is arrested yet up to 40 people were arrested for the death of one policeman ,ALL NONSENSE.

    1. Mugabe behaves as if he does not know that the Police Commissioner and ministers are the sources of corruption and raves over nothing. Who polices the police and ministers? If Mugabe can attend to this question then we start moving forward, as it is its a talk show and giving time for his ministers to cover their tracks. We need action Mr President.

  2. So,what did Chuhuri say when he came back after the resuscitation? “” Sorry your Excellence, I collapsed. I don’t know what really happened until now. I am sorry my sickness embarrassed you. Look you are as fit as a fiddle while I occasionally collapse into a stump of boneless flesh. I apologise to you, your Excellency, but I am still ready to serve Zimbabwe in the future” I think your Excellency might have said in private of course, “”Its not an issue Auger. You know I have been collapsing and collapsing at home myself until when amai said why don’t we try Singapore?. I feel much better now. I may take you there when I go back, if you wish”

  3. We all have to face GOD s time including those who harass or kill other people not forgetting those who would not let go power.

  4. With Mugabe in power people of Zimbabwe will continue to suffer. So it means even if it will be a peaceful demonstration his dictatorship laws will be enforced to arrest opponents. Chihuri is now a sick man. He took his ARVs and forgot to eat food in morning. This did not surprise Mugabe because he is also a sick man. We need new and fit leaders in Zimbabwe. To hell with Nikuv President.

  5. Yave hari yofadzirofa. Makore afamba asi hapana kwekuenda. Saka vanotofirapo

  6. One was collapsing as a 90 year old Man was standing, Chihuri go to Singapore. Hanzi Chii na Madzibaba Israel? Mugabe the same Ministers you are asking to bring to book the corrupt are the same people who corruptly convined with these bosses to loot. Ask that Councillor in Chitungwiza Mabamba and he will tell you more and you say the same hyenas should hunt other hyenas.

  7. There is no need for Chihuri to apologize – its an ailment and he must start looking for herbal treatments quick – am surprised when he says he is as fit as a fiddle – let us accept our conditions guys

  8. no need to apologise for nature sir

    To completely get rid of è corruption è govt should get rid of all è cabinet ministers and put in a new ministers that comprises of the youth and church leaders. Its futile to recycle same old ministers year in year out.

    1. That’s not much of a deal. My friend’s mother’s sister’s son-in-law’s 1st cousin (on my dad’s side of the family) makes $300 per hour (one hour minimum) and does not even need a laptop. It usually only takes about 10-15 minutes per customer and protection is always used. Please see the link.

  18. chilimhanzi people are killed and beaten everyday as long as they dont have a zanu background.. uri we MDC IWE.. SUPPLY supply the names of those who have been killed and there dates of death. You kill people in the name of politic, wil arrest you one day

  19. hapana zvamunondiita

    That’s wat u get kutora munhu Musango n make him police commissioner, akaudzwa kti kune pass out parade iye akafunga kti vanhu vanenge vachifenda

  20. Musadheerere juju vakomana. Hanzi deputy waChihuri akabva aswedera padhuze na robert. Akazobva here pakadzoka boss wake? Chihuri is now a dead man. His deputy really wants to be acting commissioner-general and eventully commissioner-general like what happened to Chihuri after the demise of Nguruve. Anyway pedzanai.

  21. Chihuri passed out at pass out parade. An apology was not necessary. One does not apologise for being sick. Promising that it will never happen again and making unreasonable excuses is ridiculous. Instead of making an apology, he should have submitted a resignation letter on reasons of poor health.

  22. “I want to apologise for this happening to my officers and to members of the ZRP what has happened and I sincerely apologise to them and I also apologise to my leadership, particularly the President and my Minister of Home Affairs for what has happened and to all of you.

    “I just want to say now finally those people who think the President is not fit they must now ask me because we were together, we went through the same paces and there he was, up and about up until now when something caught up with me so they must take care,”

  23. Mugabe looks strong because of some paining killers he is swallowing every day very soon they will be finished and he be on aplane to singapore to get some.

  24. In his speech, Mugabe warned those threatening to stage demonstrations that the “full wrath of the law” would catch up with them – this from a man who has recently gone to see the Pope pretending to be a man of God, this idiot with a bipolar disorder. Threatening people this man of God!

  25. kufunga kwangu

    muka iwe vanhu vako vari kurohwa kuBudiriro uko aah

  26. I wish he had died. In fact I wish him to die before the end of June, vese nemaShef ake if possible. I hate them with a passion.

  27. Chegore rino, seka hako Tarubva iwe! Mugabe in Singapore for treatment, Didymus Mutasa in India for treatment, Shamuyarira critically ill in Harare, Chihuri collapses, mukati pane achasara imi? Zvepasi pano idandaro, zvinopera veduwe.

  28. People of God, have you ever thought about the feelings of his children. What has happened to our ubuntu? Lets learn to respect each other, even those we hate.

  29. Mr Police Commissioner, wish you well. Just ignore them and forgive them.

  30. My sincere appologies for passing out on this pass out graduation. A lot witnessed my passing out including his excellence the presifent of the Republic of Zimbabwe. And a lot felt sorry for me, saw me talking to the president they thought i’m resigning, BUT I AM NOT.!!!!!

  31. I thought the headline read ” chihuri collapses” not President Mugabe delivers another speech once again , great journalism work you got us to listen/read the President’s speech but all I gotta say about these vintage people is 1.Chisingapere chinoshura and ushe madzoro unoravanwa heya aiva madziva ava mazambuka zimbabwe once the bread basket with a booming economy now is just a shadow of its former self .2 All those in power u will leave it one-day and we await annxiously on that day , these guys are fathers without confidence in there sons . 3 Chihuri shouldn’t hv apologized once you are sick its your body’s way of telling you its too much now so please someone to tell these guys to do use a favor and retire lastly if reports said he collapsed and apologized for it that means he was on something maybe steroids coz it makes no sense really to apologize for your illness and who in the world accepts an apology on wrong doing caused by natural causes I mean this guy must be really scared of the president eish I’m just saying its freaky

  32. Zimbabwe is beyond help.

  33. Now Mugabe the full wrath of Zanu PF caught up with you!! Go you own way!!
