ZRP To Recruit 1000 Police Officers, After The COVID-19 Pandemic – Matanga

According to Police Commissioner General Godwin Matanga, ZRP will receruit 1000 Police officers after the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is over, ZimLive reports.

PG Matanga was speaking during a “discuss the security situation in the country” news briefing he jointly addressed with the Home Affairs Minister Kazembe Kazembe.

Matanga said:

We last recruited in 2018, but I have been given the green light by the Police Service Commission through the Home Affairs ministry to recruit 1,000 men and women to train as police officers.

The Covid-19 pandemic came unplanned and we ended up having too many roadblocks, so the army ended up collaborating with the police.

If you read the Constitution, depending on the situation on the ground the army may be called in to assist. It’s not about shortages (of police officers) but it’s about the public order situation where you will see we have roadblocks all over. Any department can be called in to assist.

Matanga commended the work of the police officers who work for his department and said even though they were not adequately funded, they have done a good job in dealing with dangerous criminals.

During the same briefing Kazembe Kazembe urged fugitive politicians to voluntarily surrender themselves to the authorities to clear their names.
