Illegal money changers and pirate taxis are coming back into Masvingo Central Business District (CBD) in droves in defiance of the stay-at-home order.
Police officers are reportedly abetting the illegal activities by taking bribes from the forex dealers and Mushikashika operators.
National Police Spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi told Masvingo Mirror that the Zimbabwe Republic Police is taking the issue seriously and it will be discussed by the police commanders at the Police General Headquarters.
The illegal trade in foreign currency is rampant along Hofmeyer Street and places around large shopping areas like Pick and Pay and N. Richards.
The corrupt police officers are allegedly taking ZWL$10 from pedestrians and cyclists getting into town or going to visit patients at Masvingo Provincial Hospital.
