Speaking at Morris Depot while conferring ranks to newly promoted senior officers, Police Commissioner General, Godwin Matanga warned that all officers who don’t report for duty starting from Wednesday next week will be fired on spot.
I would like to take this moment to warn that all those who don’t turn up for duty from Wednesday next week will be fired on the spot. Proper procedures or paper work for their dismissal will follow later but they will have been dismissed.
Matanga also told the newly promoted officers that they should not use their new ranks to settle personal issues. Said Matanga:
Let me therefore remind the newly promoted senior officers that your elevation is not a passport to settling personal scores with those below you; neither is it an opportunity to abuse authority and organisational resources for self-aggrandisement or otherwise. Instead, this an opportunity for you to reciprocate the trust and confidence that the organisation and Government has reposed on you by upholding the virtues of professionalism, transparency and fairness.
