Police in Bulawayo yesterday arrested 46 suspected foreign currency dealers in the Central Business District in an operation code named ‘Flush out illegal foreign currency dealers’.
Police were out in full force days after Chief Justice Luke Malaba complained about illegal activities around Tredgold Building which houses Bulawayo Magistrates Courts where most illegal forex dealers operate from. Bulawayo police spokesperson Chief Inspector Precious Simango said the operation will be ongoing until there is sanity. Said Simango:
We yesterday launched an operation code named ‘Flush out illegal foreign currency dealers.’ The arrest of osiphatheleni will be an ongoing operation until there is sanity. We want to sustain our maintenance of law and order and sanity in the city.
