According ZPS disciplinary court charge sheet, on July 31 last year Ndlovu and some of his juniors were having drinks at Khami Prison Officers’ bar whilst watching Sabina Mugabe’s burial at Heroes Acre on Zimbabwe Television (ZTV) which was being beamed live. Ndlovu who was in a drunken state started shouting on top of his voice saying that “Sabina was a useless woman of loose morals who was not supposed to be buried at the National Heroes Acre.”
This did not go down well with some junior prison officers who reported the matter to ZPS Matebeleland region headquarters based at Mhlahlandlela government complex in Bulawayo the following day. Ndlovu was dragged before the ZPS disciplinary committee several times since last year in August but was denying the charges and making appeals.
However on Tuesday he received a letter from ZPS national headquarters in Harare notifying him that he had been fired and should leave the Khami Prison Complex in the next seven days.
When contacted for comment ZPS national spokesperson Priscilla Mthembo said “she needs questions in writing and will only respond to them when back in office as she was out of Harare.”
Sabina who was 10 years junior to Mugabe, served as a Member of Parliament (MP) for Makonde East in 1985 and later became the legislator for Zvimba South constituency between 1990 and 2008.She was also a member of the Zanu (PF) women’s league serving as its national secretary for production and labour. She died at Harare’s Avenues Clinic on July 29n where she had been admitted complaining of stomach pains.
