18 Uniformed Officers Arrested For Taking R2 000 Bribe Denied Bail

18 Uniformed Officers Arrested For Taking R2 000 Bribe Denied Bail

Eighteen (18) special security agents arrested by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) at a roadblock in Beitbridge on Saturday were denied bail by Beitbridge Resident Magistrate Takudzwa Gwazemba on Tuesday.

They were denied bail after State prosecutor Tinayeishe Matenga argued that the accused are likely to interfere with police investigations.

The magistrate also noted that some of the accused ran away from the roadblock into the bushes when ZACC officers were making arrests and this showed that they would likely abscond if granted bail.

Their lawyer Muchihwande Forbes Sithole of Chauke and Associates had requested bail of ZWL$5 000 arguing that the accused are civil servants who are poorly remunerated.

The 18 security members were drawn from the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP), Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA), the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) for the special operation.

The accused were arrested after they allegedly received an R2 000 bribe from a Sable Class Bus at around 6 AM on Saturday.

They had been trapped by police from the Anti-Corruption Unit who were inside the bus and immediately arrested them after they had taken the marked money.

It's the environment that has forced our law enforcement into being common criminals. Look around you, there is a stench of ZANU corruption everywhere. They need to feed their families too. CCC 2023

Corrupt is very rampant in the security sector especially ZRP. They are busy collecting money everyday on these these mushikashika drivers.
