Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Obedingwa Mguni has revealed that the government is going to introduce an electronic ticketing system to replace spot fines due to the corruption of Zimbabwe Republic Police traffic officers. Mguni said this during parliament’s question and answer session on Wednesday. Said Mguni:
There is a new company which has come to change the way in which the police are operating so that they do not carry any receipt books.
We now have a machine which will enable a vehicle’s number plates to be scanned. The machine would state the owner of the vehicle, a slip will be printed to enable the person even though he does not have cash on him, to approach the nearest police camp and pay.
We will be having such machines. We are leaving old ways. We want to stop corruption which is there.
