ZRP taken to court for using “spikes” on motorists

The Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) has taken the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) to court challenging their use of spikes against motorists. ZLHR wants the practice stopped.

Last month, Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Obedingwa Mguni said that government will charge police officers who throw spikes at moving vehicles. According to the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter IV, Section 38 the officers face up to 10 years in prison or a fine of $3 000 or both. He also urged members of the public to take pictures and videos if they witness officers throwing spikes.
