Police In Bulawayo Apologise For Spelling ‘Error’

Police in Bulawayo have apologised to members of the public after an outcry stirred by the erection of a signpost at Magwegwe Police Station with wrong spelling.

Police said it was a genuine error that a banner erected at the police station was written “Magwegewe” instead of Magwegwe.

Bulawayo provincial spokesperson Assistant Inspector Nomalanga Msebele said the wrong spelling has since been corrected. She said:

Police in Bulawayo would like to advise members of the public that the spelling error which resulted in the name of Magwegwe Police Station being misspelt has since been rectified.

This was a genuine error by one of our trusted local businessmen who willingly volunteered to print a banner for the police.

The error was discovered during the erection of the banner and immediately removed and corrected. Some members of the public had already taken some pictures and circulated them.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused and we would like to appreciate our local business people for continuous support.

  1. We all make errors. You should see the posts to online pom papers. I shudder, but I then love written English. Poms have had decades of dumbing down. Students are taught spelling is secondary to accuracy.
    Many rely on auto-correct in the misunderstood conception that it is foolproof!
    BTW. Using pom is not racist, I am a pom!
