Presidential Guard

Three top presidential guards arrested. This comes against reports of the growing indiscipline among members of the security sector who are not being spared from the economic crisis currently bedevilling the country.

In a rather embarrassing development for the authorities, three soldiers from the Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) who are attached to the elite Presidential Guard were recently arrested for allegedly assaulting villagers whilst trying to take over a gold mine in Mt Darwin.

iHarare has established from the Daily News, that Police yesterday arrested three members of the Presidential Guard, as well as a former ZBC staffer-Musorowegomo Mukosi-for violently trying to displace villagers in Mt Darwin whilst laying claim to a gold mine.

Police spokesperson Paul Nyathi confirmed the arrests. Police named Blessmore Tembo (32), Gilbert Charuma (31) and Liberty Munemo (31) as the alleged Presidential Guard members who teamed up with Mukosi and brutally assaulted 15 villagers at the gold-rich Chin Minie in the district.

We can confirm the arrest of Musorowegomo Mukosi on assault charges at Chin Mine in Mount Darwin along with three others. However, we are still investigating the allegations that they are members of the Presidential Guard. They will be appearing in court any day from today (yesterday) after investigations have been concluded.

It has also emerged that Mukosi was wielding an unlicenced firearm while the alleged Presidential Guards reigned their terror on the hapless villagers. Consequently, Mukosi will face charges of unlawful possession of an unlicensed firearm.

iHarare has observed that there has been a surge in the number of alleged crimes being committed by members of the security sector as the country’s economy continues on a downward spiral with no sign of respite in sight for frustrated Zimbabweans.
