Brains behind the abductions

from the ZimbabweTimes

The Zimbabwe Times can reveal that Chief Superintendent Chrispen Makedenge, who has been associated over the years with the arrest of opposition politicians, journalists and human rights activists, is the alleged mastermind behind the wave of the series of abductions.

Makedenge is the officer commanding the Law and Order section of the police, The operatives drawn from police, the Zimbabwe National Army and Central Intelligence Organisation have targeted members of the mainstream Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party as well as civic and human rights activists and journalists.

The operation has strangely been code-named “Chimumumu”, Shona for a dumb person.

Sources within the police force also allege that Makedenge is also in charge of the torture chamber at Harare Central Police Station....

The source said a large budget had been allocated to Operation Chimumumu.

Among the benefits enjoyed by Makedenge’s team were access to a variety of new vehicles that had been placed at their disposal, an unlimited fuel of supply and permanent bookings in various hotels throughout the country.

The source said Makedenge had been allocated a commercial farm in the rich Banket farming area and had benefited immensely from the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe’s farm mechanisation programme....

The team is said to report directly to President Mugabe’s office....
