Charity Charamba moved from police press department

HARARE – The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) is set to have a new national spokesperson after Commissioner Charity Charamba was redeployed to the Staff College as Principal.

Charamba is among 11 top ranking police officers who have been moved from their different stations to occupy other influential positions within the force.

The latest reshuffle is the third major shake-up since President Emmerson Mnangagwa took power in a military coup in November 2017. He immediately set about purging senior officers in the police, the Central Intelligence Organisation and the military who were believed to be loyal to former President Robert Mugabe.

One of those appointments was the elevation of Commissioner General Godwin Matanga to become the police chief, after Augustine Chihuri fled into exile.
