Chihuri collapses in front of Mugabe

Police Commissioner Augustine Chihuri today collapsed in front of President Robert Mugabe during a police graduation at Morris Depot. The Herald said he was attended to by Lands Minister Dr Douglas Mombeshora and returned to the podium after about 20 minutes. Chihuri has been at the head of the police force since 1993 and was appointed amid controversy because of charges he had faced. His contract has been renewed no less than 13 times. Chihuri is one of the top service chiefs that form the Joint Operations Command that some have said runs the country. The others are Defence Forces chief Constantine Chiwenga, Intelligence Chief Happyton Bonyongwe, Air Force Chief Perrence Shiri, army boss Phillip Sibanda and Prisons Chief Paradzai Zimondi. Chihuri has openly stated that he supports the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front and would step down if another party took over.
