MASVINGO – Officer Commanding Masvingo Province, Ass Commissioner Taonei Nyazema has been transferred to Bulawayo barely a year after assuming duty in the Ancient City, this is according to a memo in the hands of The Mirror.
He appears to be taking a less influential post there as he will be responsible for operations.
Taking over from Nyazema is Commissioner David Mahoya who was officer commanding Mashonaland Central Province. Ass Commissioner Felistas Musvipa from PGHQ will head the operations department in Masvingo with immediate effect.
Efforts to get a comment from National Police Spokesperson Ass Commissioner Paul Nyathi were futile.
Nyazema leaves Masvingo at a time when Police Headquarters was extremely concerned with the strained relationship between Police and journalists in the Province.
Nyathi recently issued a public statement expressing such concerns.
Police also effected a number of senior transfers throughout the country.
Assistant Commissioner Onismus Ngavi who was responsible for crime in Masvingo has been transferred to Mat South where he will head the admin department.
Ngavi will be replaced by Ass Commissioner U F Mbengwa who is coming from Mat North.
Newly promoted Ass Commissioner Florence Marume is moving from Mutare Central District and will head admin in Masvingo. She replaces Ass Commissioner Magret Gono who moves to Mash East in the same department. https://masvingomirror.com
