Statement by the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) national spokesperson Assistant CommissionerPaul Nyathi on the holding of braai parties and beer drinking sprees at bars, beer halls and restaurants.
The Zimbabwe Republic Police reiterates that the holding of braai parties and beer drinking sprees at bars, beer halls and restaurants is banned under the Government’s COVID-19 regulations.
In this regard, all operators who continue to defy COVID-19 health and safety measures will face severe penalties as outlined by the Government and should not cry foul on arrest by the Police.
The Police will also name and shame the errant operators. Members of the public found drinking beer at bars, beer halls and restaurants will also be arrested by the Police and made to face the due processes of the law.
In the same vein, the Police warn members of the public who include college and university students who are holding parties at homes in open contravention of the COVID-19 curfew order that the law will take its course.
Some of the parties are turning violent with revellers attacking innocent members of the public.
The Police applaud citizens who are raising concerns with regards to the alleged activities by some community members and in the process posing as COVID-19 super spreaders.
