Chihuri explains his absence at parliament


Police Commissioner-General Augustine Chihuri was expected in Parliament yesterday to answer questions about the heavy presence of cops on the roads. But he chose to head to State House instead, claiming he was giving Mugabe a security briefing.

Transport Committee chairperson Dextor Nduna said : “The Commissioner-General has apologised for his non-attendance today (yesterday) and we have interrogated the issue with Parliament administration,” he said.


Augustine-Chihuri-policeWe will have to schedule another day for the hearing because Chihuri gives briefs to the Head of State President Robert Mugabe every Monday morning and so he could not attend the committee meeting.”

The issue of spot fines has become an emotive one, with motorists complaining that they are charged for frivolous road crimes, while others say the heavy police presence on most roads was distracting traffic flow.
