Cop caged for ‘Mugabe old, Grace prostitute’ slur

By Staff Reporter

A JUNIOR officer with the Zimbabwe Republic Police was on Monday slapped with a 10 day jail term for describing then President Robert Mugabe as “too old to rule” the country and for calling former First Lady Grace Mugabe a prostitute.

This is after Sergeant Thompson Joseph Mloyie had been taken through a police internal trial which found him guilty of contravening a section of the Police Act through his conduct.

Mloyie had been on trial since January for allegedly contravening paragraph 35 of the Schedule of the Police Act (Chapter 11:10).

He was accused of “acting in an unbecoming manner prejudicial to discipline or reasonably likely to bring discredit to the Police Service”.

Mloyie was arrested in March 2016 at Harare’s Cranborne Police Station by his colleagues and charged with undermining the authority of or insulting the President in contravention of Section 33 (2) (a) of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter 9:23.

He was represented by Jeremiah Bamu and Noble Chinhanu of Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights.

It is alleged he uttered the words: “President Mugabe achembera haachakwanisi kutonga nyika ino. Ndiye arikukonzera (sic) kutambura munyika ino uye akaroora hure Grace Mugabe,” which the ZRP translated to mean “‘President Mugabe is too old and incapable of leading this country and is the cause of the suffering going on in this country and is married to a prostitute, Grace Mugabe.”

The ZRP claimed that Mloyie was under the influence of alcohol, when he uttered the alleged offensive words.

In passing sentence after first convicting the police officer two weeks ago, Superintendent Makunike ordered Mloyie to spend 10 days in prison.

During the trial, the ZRP lined up two witnesses namely Sergeant Stanley Makunda and Sergeant Amos Muchenjero, who are both members of the Police.
