Police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba told journalists in Harare that unscrupulous elements within the force are erecting illegal roadblocks and using spikes to extort motorists.
Of late we are noticing a disturbing phenomenon where some individuals have gone on the overdrive trying to paint a gloomy picture about the police.
We are fully aware of the machinations of some unscrupulous elements that have formed the fifth column that masquerades as police, conducting illegal roadblocks using spikes and collecting money for them.
We are however investigating the exact nature, composition and scope of this criminal group.
