Sgt Mhara and his colleague, Cst Taison Munhungeyi went home with a bicycle and $50 cash each.
“He has shown commitment, devotion and has become very exemplary among other police officers and he surely deserved this promotion. This should be a living testimony to other members of the police force that the Commissioner General’s instant promotion is not just on paper, but it can truly come to reality. This man is a hero of legendary proportions,” said Snr Asst Com Tayengwa.

“This promotion is an unusual one which I never thought would come my way. What gave me the strength and courage to pursue this alleged rapist until I arrested him was the love that I have for my job as a policeman.

“It wasn’t quite an easy thing to get dive into the sewage, but that was the only chance we had to arrest this suspect. Moreover, the situation was a bit risky as the suspect started attacking me with stones, but I kept advancing for about 2km until I nabbed him. I had no reason to retreat, but to do what I was trained to do. Now I feel honoured and I am personally satisfied with this achievement,” said Sgt Mhara. manica post
