Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's director of research, Thabani Mpofu, yesterday told Harare magistrate Anita Tshuma that the police had frustrated his efforts to surrender his firearm after leaving the employ of the Attorney General's Office in 2003.

Mpofu, who was led by his lawyer Alec Muchadehama in the matter in which he allegedly failed to renew the firearm certificate, said he was given the firearm to protect himself at a time when the AG's Office was prosecuting high-profile cases involving dangerous criminals.
