FULL TEXT: Police Reach Out To Citizens To Report Perpetrators Of Violence

29 JULY 2020


In light of the increase in COVID-19 cases in the country, the Zimbabwe Republic Police urges members of the public not to defy national lockdown measures for the safety, health and security of all.

It is disturbing to note that since the 30th March 2020, a total of 120 023 people have been arrested for various offences related to violations of the national lockdown regulations.

Provinces currently topping the arrests are Harare, Manicaland and Bulawayo.

Meanwhile, it has come to the attention of the police that some unscrupulous individuals and groups are inciting and urging members of the public to engage in acts of violence.

Police will, therefore, take decisive action against such unruly elements.

Members of the public are advised to report such acts of violence or incitement, meant to destabilize the current peaceful environment in the country on the following Police phone numbers which are manned 24/7 throughout the country:

  • HARARE – (0242) 748836/753783
  • BULAWAYO – (0292) 73547/885479

Let us be law-abiding citizens and stay safe from COVID-19.

  1. While looking for perpetrators of violence, The ZRP should look among its own ranks. When politically- and socially-aware citizens by questioning the government and call for better governance, become targets for arrest – sorry, abductions by plain clothes personnel in unmarked cars – how can Asst Commissioner Nyathi speak of a peaceful environment. Peace is not simply the absence of aggression. It is a situation in which persons need not be looking over their shoulders; can go about their normal daily routines with harrassment; can speak their minds without fear; can express their indignation over the high levels of corruption within state departments and para-statals. This sadly is not the case in Zimbabwe.
