President Emmerson Mnangagwa has promoted 1 089 police officers in wide ranging promotions that also saw eight Assistant Commissioners being promoted to the position of Commissioners.
The eight Commissioners are Charles Musavengana, Bazibi Dube, Stephen Kazingizi, Ndofandaedza Jaboon, Richard Mahoya Basera, Winston Muzah, Nelson Charumbira and Grace Sundirai Ndou.
Police spokesperson Paul Nyathi made the announcement in a press statement released on Wednesday.
The changes saw Mnangagwa promote 24 senior officers to the post of Assistant Commissioner.
The movements come as Zimbabwe Republic Police embarks on routine transfers as a way of strengthening the force’s operation effectiveness, Nyathi said.
Other promotions include 48 officers being promoted to the post of Chief Superintendent, 168 to the post of Superintendent, 232 to the post of Chief Inspectors and 609 inspectors.
Nyathi said the appointments were made in line with Government’s vision 2030 as well as the quest by the organisation to deliver quality service to the people of Zimbabwe.
“The promotions are in line with the Government’s vision 2030 and the Zimbabwe Republic Police’s quest to improve service delivery to Zimbabweans. Vacancies had arisen due to retirement and natural causes,” Nyathi said.
