We want to thank Treasury for availing funds to acquire fuel, communication equipment, transport, stationery and uniforms. We are going to put these resources to good use and all commanders in the ZRP will be on the ground monitoring deployed personnel. We want to thank the Judiciary for setting up special courts to deal with criminals during the election period. We have 75 well-seasoned magistrates and five experienced judges of the High Court.
