Police Deploy Senior Officers At Roadblocks

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has deployed senior officers to be in charge of security checkpoints along all major roads in a move meant to tighten the current Level IV lockdown measures.

In a memo to all officers commanding districts, Officer Commanding Police Harare Province said as from last Monday, inspectors should be in charge at roadblocks. The memo read in part:

An inspector should be deployed at busy roadblocks in big cities so that correct decisions are made.

At other checkpoints, a sergeant or assistant Inspector should be in charge depending on the level of activities at that particular point.

This comes as the government doubled fines for non-custodial offences with a person found in public without a face covering facing a penalty of RTGS$5 000.

As of Wednesday, 27 January 2020, Zimbabwe had recorded 32 304 confirmed coronavirus cases, including 23 687 recoveries and 1 122 deaths.
