FORMER Prime Minister, Morgan Tsvangirai has been stripped of his police security.

The police officers were withdrawn on Thursday shortly after President Robert Mugabe was sworn in for a seventh term, ending a shaky coalition government with Tsvangirai.

“To us it means nothing because he never expected anything good from Zanu PF especially that the inclusive government is gone,â€� Tsvangirai’s spokesman Luke Tamborinyoka said.

“The president (MDC leader) is not concerned about police officers not being there at his house. He has God on his side and his protection will never be compromised through and through.”

Tsvangirai was given a state convoy which was operated by security operatives, while his residence had round-the-clock armed police officers.

Tsvangirai joined the inclusive government in 2009 following a disputed poll which saw Mugabe being trounced by the former trade unionist in a March 2008 election, before violence was unleashed on MDC supporters in the run-up to a June presidential run-off.

The uneasy coalition government supervised by Mugabe, saw the production of a new constitution, which led to polls on July 31.

Mugabe won the presidential vote by 61 percent amid allegations of vote fraud and massive irregularities.

He was on Thursday sworn-in at the National Sports Stadium.
