Simba Chikore, President Mugabe’s son-in-law is alleged to have taken control of President Mugabe’s close security unit (CSU). This development has not been welcomed by the security chiefs as Bona’s husband does not have any known training in VIP protection.
Sources who spoke to the Zimbabwe Independent said:
During the president’s birthday celebrations hosted by staff in the Office of the President and Cabinet, Chikore took a leading role in protocol. This did not end there; he was also a key member of the security team when the president visited Matopos to celebrate his birthday. What is creating headaches for many in the system is that he has no training or experience in such duties.
We want things to be done properly because if there is a security lapse he won’t take responsibility. That’s the major concern
Chikore may have taken a leading in the President’s security as the president has become increasingly sensitive to security matters due to intense factional fights in ZanuPF.
