CHIREDZI – The Zimbabwe Republic Police has allegedly not acted against a cop that the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission (ZHRC) wants prosecuted for alleged kidnap and torture.
ZHRC recently submitted a report to the Police General Headquarters and the Zimbabwe National Army alleging that one member from each of the two organisations ganged up, kidnapped and tortured a labour activist in Chiredzi.
However, there has been no action from either and ZHRC chairman, Elasto Mugwadi is now seeking audience with the Commissioner General of Police Augustine Chihuri over the matter.
Kariborn Nyemba brother to former Zimbabwe Sugar Milling Industry Workers Union president Simbarashe Nyemba was allegedly abducted and tortured by Senior Detective Inspector Henry Dhowa and Army Captain Faster Gono last year. ZHRC investigated the matter and recommended that the two be charged for the abuse. 
Mugwadi confirmed the development to The Mirror. He said the human rights body is extremely worried by the slow response being exhibited by police in implementing the recommendations made by the Commission. He also said the commission`s secretariat had approached the Commissioner General and set Friday November 12 as the date which they should meet but they are still waiting.
"Our secretariat has organised a meeting between us and the Commissioner General of Police so that we hear problems they are facing in implementing our recommendations. We are just worried as a Commission with the slow response from Police over this matter. Tentatively we are supposed to meet this coming Friday but we are yet to get a confirmation from the Commissioner General`s office if that date is possible," said Mugwadi.
