ZRP has said it will deploy officers to arrest and maintain order at these underground parties if the need arise:
The Zimbabwe Republic Police Bulawayo province would like to conscientise members of the public on the dangers and effects of Vuzu parties where school going children, youths and school leavers meet and abuse drugs and alcohol while indulging in sexual activities.
As police we will deploy police officers to monitor youth activities in and around the city to try and deter them from organising and taking part in Vuzu parties. At these parties some indulge in group sex thereby exposing themselves to sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies.
VUZU parties are teenage parties usually organised by teenagers during the school holidays and school-leaver. They have over the years amassed a very bad reputation as drug abuse and other adult stuff is rumoured to take place at these parties.
