The late former Zimbabwe Republic Police Deputy Commissioner, Cde Moses Griffiths MPOFU who died last Friday has been declared a National Hero.
This was announced by the ZANU PF National Spokesperson Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo at the post- Politburo media briefing in Harare this Wednesday.
The family of the late national hero has already been informed about the hero status. Burial arrangements are yet to be announced.
Cde Mpofu, whose Chimurenga name was Matswata Witness Mhlanga, died last Friday at United Bulawayo Hospitals at the age of 66 after a long illness.
Police last week described their former Deputy Commissioner as an astute and disciplined officer.
He rose through the ranks to Deputy Commissioner in 1999, a rank which he held until his retirement in December 2003.
