Police Officers Banned From Owning Commuter Omnibuses, Pirate Taxis

In an effort to end corruption and to restore the public’s confidence in the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP), the organisation has reportedly banned police officers from owning commuter omnibuses or being involved in the transport business. Under the tenure of long-serving former ZRP commissioner-general Augustine Chihuri, the ZRP officers were accused of extorting the public through numerous roadblocks. Allegations have also been made that police officers were investing in commuter omnibuses and prirate taxis, and that they would target vehicles which did not belong to colleagues.  The ban on being involved in the transport business was made by Acting Commissioner-General Godwin Matanga.

Sources who spoke to state-owned media said:

He also said there was not going to be any transport business among officers and that members should work towards building public confidence. And that indiscipline and corruption should stop.

He (Acting Comm-Gen Matanga) also said the retirement age is 55 years according to the Police Act, 65 years for Public Service Commission. He said members should prepare for it.
