The empowerment programme is the ace in Zanu PF’s campaign strategy ahead of polls President Robert Mugabe wants held by March 2013, hence the keen interest from his security sector loyal to him.
A source said: “A number of senior officers from the police, intelligence and military have been approached with an offer to be part of the team and, in return, been promised new vehicles and generous packages. The recruitment is being handled at a very senior level as in the police, for example, Deputy Commissioner-General Innocent Matibiri is the point man.”
