Police Commissioner, Augustine Chihuri collapsed during a pass out parade for recruits at Morris Depot in Harare this morning.
President Robert Mugabe was also attending the event. Chihuri collapsed while standing next to the veteran leader as they were about to inspect the graduating cops.
He was quickly taken away on a stretcher with deputy commissioner Godwin Matanga taking over his boss' place next to Mugabe.
There was complete silence among the hundreds of recruits and their relatives with most unsure whether to continue using their cameras and smartphones to take pictures as the police boss was taken away.
The event however, continued with Chihuri reappearing some 30 minutes later and causally re-taking his seat as if nothing had happened.
