Zimbabwe police this weekend launched raids in Harare and Shamva to arrest a former Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) deputy director over an alleged plot to topple the government
Tadzingaira Tachiveyi, a former Deputy Director in the CIO, lost his job in a purge that followed the ouster of former President Robert Mugabe in a military coup last November.
An associate of the former Deputy Director of Counter Intelligence said the former CIO boss had been arrested at his Musinje Farm in Musana, on the road to Shamva.
We could not be able to get more details of the alleged plot against President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government, but the plot is said to involve the current wife of Robert Mugabe former First Lady Grace
The Zimbabwe National Police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba was not answering calls when we tried to inquire what charges Tachiveyi was facing.
Tachiveyi, according to his associate, is a regular visitor to Mugabe’s Blue Roof residence in Harare.
