Police To Use Surveillance Drones To Monitor Political Rallies After Bulawayo Explosion

Zimbabwe Republic Police Commander for the 2018 Harmonised Elections Committee, Senior Assistant Commissioner Erasmus Makodza has said that the police will be introducing special anti-terror units as well as drones to monitor political gatherings. This comes after an explosion occurred at President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s Bulawayo rally last week. Speaking to the Sunday News, Makodza said,

There will be increased vigilance and increased police visibility at all rallies. We will also ensure that we deploy more plainclothes police officers among the crowds and we shall be using drones to monitor activities at rallies and capture what is going on.

As of our deadline which is 30 June 2018 (yesterday), we expect to have officially trained 45 000 officers ahead of the elections.

Our training is focusing on management of harmonised elections, the Electoral Act, public order and disorder training, and human rights. We also have a manual that we have produced for all officers involved. It basically contains the key elements of the Electoral Act which the police will be using during the elections.
