Augustine Chihuri

Twelve more properties linked to former police Commissioner-General Augustine Chihuri have been identified and the State wants them added to the list of Chihuri’s frozen properties.

This is in light of pending investigations into allegations that Chihuri diverted over US$32 million of public funds into family companies.

Below is the list of the newly-identified properties:

  1. 10 Stafford Road, Mt Pleasant, Harare
  2. 1 Bure Close, Stathaven, Harare.
  3. 8 St Aubins Close, Chisipite, Harare.
  4. 29 Carsberg Avenue, Alexandra Park, Harare.

  12. 5346 Mufakose Township in the name of Beaular Billie. (a co-director of Rewstand Enterprises (Pvt) Ltd and already listed as a respondent).

The list of newly-discovered immovable properties has since been added on the already identified properties through an amended draft order.

Initially, the State had identified the following immovable properties which Chihuri and his family acquired during his 25-year tenure at the helm of the police:

  • Seven residential stands at Police Heights on Gletwin Farm in north-east Harare;
  • 9 hectares at Fishponds in Lomagundi district (Deed of Transfer 3177/90);
