In a new corruption clampdown initiative initiated by police chiefs, police officers who became vehicle owners in 2019 are to answer to their bosses how they bought those vehicles, ZimLive reports.
This was revealed in a memo to all police stations dated 6 January that was seen by the publication. The memo said:
Dispols (police district commanders) are required to compile and submit a list of officers and members under their command who purchased and own personal vehicles. Consider period 01/01/2019 to date. The information must be at this office by 21/01/2020. Treat this matter with the seriousness it deserves.
Unconfirmed rumours say police officers own most vehicles used in pirating short distances called Mushikashika.
