The police officers are reported to have been working in cahoots with illegal gold panners in the area.
The publication says ZRP Officer Commanding Mashonaland Central has approved the transfers, and it also claims to have in its possession a police memo with all the names of those transferred from ZRP Mazowe. Zim Morning Post quotes its source as saying:
When the operation started in January, Mazowe ZRP members’ illegal panning activities were exposed, with accusations that much of the mining tools used in the illegal gold mining activities belonged to them.
The police officers are also being accused of smuggling out of the camp at night confiscated exhibits such as harmer mills.
