Five Senior Police Officers Retired From The Force

Five senior police officers were reportedly fired on Friday. The retired officers include three deputy commissioner-generals- Innocent Matibiri, Josephine Shambare and Levi Sibanda and two unnamed commissioners. Several high ranking police officers were relieved of their duties since the military intervention in November 2017, the most notable being the Comissioner General Augustine Chihuri. Police Officers who reached the age of fifty or served in the force for over twenty are reportedly being eased into retirement. The dismissals are said to have led to the postponement of a graduation ceremony at Zimbabwe Republic Police Staff College which was supposed to be held last week. A senior police officer said

The commissioner-general had to engage with those who were being relieved of their duties and, also, the speeches which had been prepared before the writing of letters were supposed to be changed, as they were no longer part of the programme since they had been retired… Their retirement letters were with effect from October 31 and it meant that whatever they were going to do afterwards was outside their mandate.

  1. Congratulations Great Citizens. Nevertheless they can still be put to other beneficial use on grounds of experience they have, hopefully no targeting. Suppose they showed willingness to continue servicing, does that not count as a gesture of commitment to national cause?

  2. zrp command is the most corrupt element of the society and regrettably the most cruel one..in 2011 Chihuri came with a plan to swindle my salary .despite that he and his lieutenants earned themselves huge allowances and benefits ,these guys have no conscience at a. they advertised the sale of stand in HATCLIFF where they asked a deposit of US4700.TO DATE NOTHING HAS MOVED ,NO FEED BACK NO WHAT.MAY THE PRESIDENT anti corruption or someone come to rescue.
