Reports circulating online claiming that stranded police officers who could not afford accommodation rentals ended up camping in tents at a police station in Victoria Falls are false, the government has said.
Said the Ministry of Information account on Twitter:
Govt has been made aware of false news circulating regarding the tent pitched in Victoria Falls by the @PoliceZimbabwe. The tent has been pitched purely for operational reasons which have nothing to do with the reasons given by the online publication. Fake News affect our country pic.twitter.com/rYPsDnL6p1
