Commissioner General of Police, Augustine Chihuri says Zimbabweans must remain united and guard against imperial hegemony by Western countries who want to undermine the countryâ€™s self rule and the various economic empowerment initiatives meant to benefit indigenous people.
Commissioner General Chihuri says Zimbabweans must be unified in safeguarding the gains of the liberation struggle and fight against neo-colonialists who masquerade as champions of democracy.
The police chief said this at a Police Pass Out Parade at Morris Depot in Harare where he was the reviewing officer.
He said Western countries have caused untold suffering to ordinary Zimbabweans by extending illegal sanctions in their attempt to effect regime change in the country.
Commissioner General Chihuri also warned some misguided elements in society who have started propagating politically motivated violence that they will face the full wrath of the law.
He said the ZRP will not hesitate to arrest perpetrators of violence regardless of their political status as it is the mandate of law enforcement agents to guarantee peace in the country.
â€œI urge all political parties to refrain their supporters from engaging in acts of violence…. some political parties have started causing chaos in order to disturb the referendum and the elections to be held this year,â€ said Commissioner General Chihuri.
