Patson Dzamara today petitioned Police General Commissioner Augustine Chihuri over the continued missing of his brother Itai Dzamara and the failure of the Zimbabwe Republic Police to solve the issue. In the petition Dzamara notes that the police have done nothing to solve the issue of Itai Dzamara who has been missing for 17 months.
Part of the petition reads,
To date, you, as the head of ZRP and your organisation at large have done virtually nothing to assist us as a family to at least unearth what happened to Itai and hopefully come to a place of closure. I have interacted with those tasked to investigate Itai’s matter from your organisation several times, including the former CID Law and Order department boss, Assistant Commissioner Makedenge and I have concluded that there is no sincerity on their part.
He also makes a number of demands to Chihuri,
1) That as the head of ZRP sworn to protect every citizen and uphold the constitution you should immediately issue a statement over Itai Dzamara’s disappearance.
2) That as the head of ZRP you order state security agents to release Itai Dzamara immediately, dead or alive.
3) Immediately engage the Dzamara family over this matter.
4) Heed the High Court Order which instructed you to uphold your constitutional obligation to investigate the missing of Itai Dzamara without fear or favour.
