President Robert Mugabe urged traffic police officers from engaging in corruption when manning roadblocks. The president was speaking at a pass-out parade for 593 police officers at Morris Depot yesterday.
I am told, while performing your duty, lots of temptation will visit you, especially police officers manning roadblocks. Such temptation, I am reliably informed, is blind to gender or age and is not regional or tribalistic. Be warned.
He also urged the officer to improve themselves through education saying:
Improve yourself in the police organisation through study and research. Aim high so as not to be one of those who are heard boasting, ‘. . . I have 20 years’ experience as a constable’. Uphold Zimbabwe’s reputation of being the most literate country in Africa,
