President Robert Mugabe has warned his political opponents that he has a comprehensive intelligence system at his disposal that allows hi to know well ahead of time what people will be plotting against him. He added that he was always in a state of constant vigilance despite the fact that people had voted for him in order, to be a step ahead of his enemies.
Speaking at the burial of the late senior intelligence officer, Zenzo Ntuliki, at the National Heroes Acre, Mugabe said
I mentioned the protection of the leaders. Isusu zvatiri pano, hatingomhanya–mhanya tichingodauka–dauka zvisiri mugwara rinoonekwa nevaongorori vedu, nyanzvi dzedu dzine maziso, nyanzvi dzedu dzine nzeve, nyanzvi dzedu dzine ruzivo rekuti apa patsvene, apa pane nyoka. Musafambe nepapa, pane nyoka mungarumwe.
[We do not just move around or take any action without deliberation. Our experts [CIO] have ears and eyes. They have information and tell us where to step to avoid snakes [enemies] which can bite us.]
We are given experts with eyes that see things which are too far and ears which hear all what is being said. This is how we live as leaders. Haungovhaira uchiti zvandakasarudzwa kucongress zvakwana [you do not just boast and relax on the strength of your election at congress]
