ZRP Officers in hot soup after being asked to explain how they bought new cars on low wages. The demand comes as concerns mount over how some police officers are living lavish lifestyles yet they earn very little.
Alarmed by the levels of corruption in the Zimbabwe Republic Police force, the police bosses have demanded that police officers should explain how they bought new cars on their government wages in the last year.
The police have since issued a memo to all police stations with the directive. The memo instructs all station commander to list down all the privately owned vehicles that belong to police officers under their command.
An excerpt from the memo reads…
Dispols (police district commanders) are required to compile and submit a list of officers and members under their command who purchased and own personal vehicles. Consider the period 01/01/2019 to date. The information must be at this office by 21/01/2020. Treat this matter with the seriousness it deserves.
According to the memo, the information which will be submitted includes the name and rank of the police officers, the vehicle type, registration number, the vehicle’s value, date purchased and details about the seller must also be provided.
Police officers have long been suspected of owning a good number of commuter omnibuses and pirate taxis that operate in major cities.
