Police To Be Deployed On Highways & Suburbs Over Easter Holiday4 years ago
The Zimbabwe Republic Police says it has deployed officers across the country to curb road traffic accidents and crimes during the Easter holidays.
Police details have been deployed on all the country’s major roads and in residential areas.
They will be working in tandem with the Vehicle Inspection Department (VID) and the Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe (TSCZ).
A statement issued on Tuesday by the national police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi reads:
The recent fatal road accidents in Gweru, Mutare and Wedza are a stark reminder to all drivers to be cautious and ensure that vehicles are roadworthy before embarking on journeys.

It is disturbing to note that drivers are overtaking in situations which do not allow them to do so safely and in the process get involved in collisions.
On the other hand, potential passengers are discouraged from standing in large numbers on the verge of the road whilst waiting for transport.
… The ZRP has deployed officers on all the country’s major roads to account for defective motor vehicles and errant drivers who may endanger the safety of others through bad driving conduct.
He called on members of the public to secure their homes and those travelling to avoid boarding Mushikashika vehicles.
The ZRP wishes all Zimbabweans and visitors a momentous Independence anniversary and blessed Easter holiday.
