Some have said that the whole system needs thorough reforms as it has over the years been corrupted that the citizenry has in the long run lost trust in the ZRP. The ministry of finance, however, said that the rebranding process was meant to address the trust deficit.

One @drbennie13 posting on twitter argued:

A name change without a corresponding change in dispatching of duties & rebuilding people’s confidence is nothing short of buying a new whip for a dead horse or putting lipstick on a pig. A change in name and professional conduct is desirable

Others clarified that the move was a mere alignment with the national constitution, section 219 which does not recognise ZRP but ZPS.
