ZRP last week arrested 118 touts in Harare CBD in an operation code-named “Operation No Touts” which is supposed to restore sanity in the sunshine city’s CBD, The Herald reports.
This was revealed by ZRP’s national spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi who said:
A total of 118 touts were arrested around Harare and were referred to court where they were sentenced to between 20 to 30 days of imprisonment or to pay fines ranging from $300 to $500.
Commuters are urged to use designated pick up points in the interest of their own safety. We also urge commuter omnibus operators to allow passengers to board any transport of their choice without hassles and disturbances.
ZRP said it will continue to monitor the situation that is aimed at decongesting the city that is filled with Mushikashika and combies loading and offloading at undesignated areas.
