A Zimbabwe police officer, who has languished at police detention barracks for a month for using a toilet which was reserved for President Robert Mugabe will learn his fate at the end of this week following an appeal to his boss.
The homicide detective, Alois Mabhunu was also sentenced last week for responding to a call of nature at the toilet that was reserved for Mugabe at a trade fair in Zimbabwe’s second biggest city.
The police spokes person, Wayne Bvudzijena said on Monday that the issue of Mabhunu was an internal, purely disciplinary matter on which he couldn’t comment. He said that the law had to take its cause as Mabhunu failed to comply with the instructions.
Mabhunu, who was a part of the security team when he attended the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair last month, is alleged to have rushed to the VIP toilet reserved for Mugabe and Jean Louis Ekra, head of African Export Import Bank, who was participating in the opening ceremonies.
When Mabhunu was stopped by the officers guarding the toilets, he forced his way in. He was arrested the following day and has been in custody since then.
