Own Correspondent| As the army carries out a cleaning up operation across the country, the Commissioner General Of Police, Augustine Chihuri has been accused of attempting to destroy evidence of bribery and corrupt practices through a ticketing syndicate.
In the years running up to the November coup, police officers under him were being ordered into a practice of traffic fining for the mere purpose of fund-raising.
For this reason Chihuri was booed at President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s inauguration last month.
Chihuri has since been accused by officers of ordering “Highway Patrol to take all the Books to Chikurubi where they are going to be destroyed. All books were transported this noon by National Traffic Bus and 2 Scania Lorries.
“Any incident that will lead to those books to be destroyed is mostly likely to happen. Prior to this there is a radio signal that instructed all traffic stations to destroy the books under their possession that were given filing instruction.
Let these criminals come to book,” a police source wrote.
Efforts to get a comment from either Chihuri or the spokesperson Charity Charamba were fruitless at the time of writing.
