POLICE Commissioner-General Augustine Chihuri has indicated that law enforcement agents were set to swoop on expelled Vice-President Joice Mujuru and other top party officials accused of corruption by President Robert Mugabe during the Zanu PF congress early this month.

Speaking at the last passout of 566 graduands for the year at Morris Depot in Harare yesterday, Chihuri said they would heed Mugabe’s calls that corrupt people should be brought to book if the evidence was availed.

Without mentioning names, Chihuri said police would not be deterred in their efforts to arrest anyone implicated in corruption.

“Let me assure the nation that the Zimbabwe Republic Police shall leave no stone unturned in bringing all perpetrators of corruption to book,” he said.

“This stance is in line with the organisation’s constitutional mandate and, more importantly, with His Excellency the President of Zimbabwe’s (Robert Mugabe) sentiments during the official opening of the 6th Zanu PF national people’s congress.”

Chihuri went on to quote Mugabe’s statement during the congress held two weeks ago.

Officially opening his party congress in Harare recently, Mugabe said all Cabinet ministers and top civil servants involved in corruption risked prosecution and dismissal once incriminating evidence linking them to the allegations was gathered.

“All those implicated in corruption cases shall be arrested if substantial evidence is gathered,” Mugabe said.

“Even if you are a minister, deputy minister or senior civil servant, you will be fired. Give us evidence. Evidence, evidence, evidence!”

First Lady Grace Mugabe led a campaign to vilify Mujuru and her allies, accusing them of corruption and trying to topple Mugabe.

Mujuru has repeatedly denied the allegations and the First Family has so far failed to provide substantiated evidence that she was corrupt and tried to assassinate Mugabe.

Mujuru and several of her close allies were fired from government by Mugabe.

These include former Presidential Affairs minister Didymus Mutasa, who was also party secretary for administration, former Labour minister Nicholas Goche, ex-Indigenisation minister Francis Nhema, former Higher and Tertiary Education minister Olivia Muchena, former Zanu PF political commissar Webster Shamu, former Mashonaland East Provincial Affairs minister Simbaneuta Mudarikwa, Dzikamai Mavhaire (Energy minister) and his deputy, Munacho Mutezo.

Chihuri also warned police officers against falling into the temptation of being corrupted by money or power.

He said there was a reduction of general crime between January and October 2014, although there has been an increase in cases of motor vehicle theft, fraud, rape of juveniles and robbery.

“The reduction in general crime by 6% during the period January to October 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013 is highly commendable,” Chihuri said.

“However, it is disheartening to note that cases of theft of motor vehicles, fraud, rape of juveniles and armed robbery recorded worrisome increases of 24%, 4%, 1% and 5% respectively, calling for renewed energy and vigilance in crime prevention and detection by all police officers.”

The police boss admitted that police officers were lagging behind criminals in the area of information technology, hence the inclusion of basic accounting and information technology in the recruits’ curriculum to enable them to curb cyber-crime.

“The ever-mutating technological environment has left the police lagging behind in tracking sophisticated criminal syndicates in the country.”

    • COMMISSIONER CHIHURI SHOULD JUST SHUT UP. HE IS THE REASON THERE IS SO MUCH CORRUPTION AND VARIOUS CRIMES COMMITTED BY POLITITIANS OR THOSE CLOSE TO THEM WHICH HE KNOWS ABOUT BUT CHOOSES TO TURN A BLIND EYE TOGETHER WITH HIS STAFF.

      HOW MANY TIMES HAVE THE LIKES OF KARIKOGA KASEKE AND OTHER COMMITTED STATUTORY RAPE AND THE CASES SWEPT UNDER THE CARPET WITH THE FULL KNOWLEDGE OF THE POLICE, JUST TO MENTION A FEW.

      CHIBVIREI APA!!!!

    • I think Chihuri should keep quite about corruption because he and his office should first get rid of corrupt activities in the police force and then he talk about this cancerous diseases which has made this country broke as it is.

      These big guys when they talk about evil which do at night and pretend to clean during the day they should know that the general public are aware of there practice at night.

      These is no one clean in Zanu (PF) and they all know that.

      Every audit carried in the police headquarters do not end because there is certain areas which are unreachable.

  1. Chihuri went on to quote Mugabe’s statement during the congress held two weeks ago.

    Officially opening his party congress in Harare recently, Mugabe said all Cabinet ministers and top civil servants involved in corruption risked prosecution and dismissal once incriminating evidence linking them to the allegations was gathered.

    “All those implicated in corruption cases shall be arrested if substantial evidence is gathered,” Mugabe said.

    obviously if evidence against the alleged perpetrators is gathered then they must face the music. however am afraid all the statements by the president, his wife and his party were mere politicking and nothing substantial can be deduced in as far as prosecuting members of the team gamatox is concerned.

  2. Suppose Chihuri were to take action in arresting corrupt individuals, then the following will happen: 1. All cabinet ministers and VPs will be arrested 2. All zpf mps will be behind bars 3. The President will find himself alone in his bedroom 4. All service chiefs will be at Chikurubi Maximum Prison 5. More than 70% of the civil servants and parastatal managers and employees will have to be arrested 6. Private sector bosses will not be spared 7. Quite a big chunk of chiefs and village heads will also fall. Thanks Chihuri for the good job you are about to do.
