ZRP has announced that since Sunday it has impounded over 9 000 vehicles (combies and private cars) that are running illegal pirating services because ZUCO is the only one licensed to ferry passengers from point A to point B, The Herald reports.
ZRP further warned that they will also impound cars not displaying number plates and warned citizens about inter-province travelling by saying the country was still in lockdown. ZRP spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said:
Motor vehicle owners who are removing number plates to avoid detection also risk having such vehicles impounded once caught.
People should take note that the country is still under national lockdown and as such, inter-city movements remain banned. We reiterate that we don’t expect any unnecessary movements and that people should abide by the laws.
People should put their safety and health first and should also assist in the maintenance of law and order
ZRP launched an operation that is targeting illegal pirates over the weekend which has resulted in 9233 drivers being arrested for operating mushikashika,
