Police Chiefs Instruct Their Juniors Not To Reveal Their Poverty

Police Chiefs Instruct Their Juniors Not To Reveal Their Poverty

Senior Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) officers have instructed junior officers to avoid being photographed in situations that display their poverty.

In a leaked internal memo dated 7 May, police chiefs said that officers who are pictured using unconventional forms of transport would be acting irresponsibly.

This comes after police officers have been photographed while riding scotch carts and travelling in Honda fit boots. Read the memo in part:

It has come to the notice of this command that officers are taken pictures whilst commuting in scotch carts, back of trucks laden with vegetables and on top of buses whilst in police uniform. These pictures are broadcast on social media.

The memo came from “DCG Admin” – believed to refer to Deputy Commissioner General in charge of Administration, Stephen Mutamba.

He warned police officers who are pictured in such situations that they face disciplinary action. The memo read:

May this type of behaviour which is irresponsible be discouraged as it is not in keeping with good taste and propriety.

Such conduct is some form of gross indiscipline and a breach of the law. Those that will be identified will face disciplinary action.

The memo was addressed to middle-rank police officers in charge of police stations across the country.

It directed them to “lecture their officers on the proper conduct of uniformed police officers”, adding:

Commanders at all levels should take this warning seriously as it will certainly have implications on their ability to supervise their subordinates.

Zimbabwe’s police officers are poorly paid and poorly equipped and this forces them to travel in public buses and commuter omnibuses.

At times, they ride on the back of trucks or ask well-wishers for free transport to move from one place to another.

We also want to make sure that they will not be able to cast their votes on voting day. I will transfer them to places where they will not be able to register or vote because we already know that they are not going to vote for us come 2023 so we can safely say that we have removed 35 000 from the opposition to the dust bin kkkk

l fail to see reason why a police officer can't get a loan and start a project or a small car....isn't it the civil servants who are first choice for all banks in Zim.....a cousin of mine who is at zpcs already has two house and a crv through that ...take loans,start projects and buy properties and resign simple

*@major Seer1*NOMORE LENDING NO RETREAT NO SURRENDER,NO RETRATING THE STATEMENT VANHU VANONZWA NEZVIMBADZO VACHIBATIRWA MIDZIYO* Finance and Economic Development Minister Mthuli Ncube has said the ban on bank lending announced by President Mnangagwa at the weekend is aimed at combating indiscipline in the financial services sector driving inflation and weakening the local currency.
On Saturday, Mnangagwa announced a raft of policy measures to stabilise the exchange rate and deal with runaway inflation.
Among the measures was the ban on bank lending and the tightening of trading of shares on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange (ZSE).
Inflation rose to 94.6 per cent in April from 76.1 per cent in March this year while the exchange rate is now roughly US$1: ZWL$400.
In an interview with ZTN, the Mint Special programme on Wednesday, 11 May, Ncube blamed the currency depreciation on rising global inflation due to the war in Ukraine and market indiscipline by local economic players. He said:
Indiscipline is something that we need to deal with and we will make sure that we enforce the measures that we have put in place to deal with this indiscipline.
These are temporary measures, what we are trying to do is to prick the speculative bubble, which has emerged in the forex market as well as in the equities market.
We have information and we know some of the perpetrators that were using banks to borrow cheap liquidity; cheap in the sense of negative real interest rates, to the speculate and take positions on the parallel market but also root some of the proceeds on to the equities market and then just keep playing around the equities and parallel markets.
So, we had to prick that bubble and this is how we decided to do it.
As I said, it (the ban on bank lending) is temporary and we will get to a point where we can loosen up and open up.
Ncube asserted that the fundamentals for a strong Zimbabwe dollar, that is, reserves of US$1 billion, strong fiscal position, tight and strong monetary policy stance and growing exports, are in place. He said:
The fundamentals for a strong currency are in place and yet we see this situation, which has to do, as I said, histories, indiscipline (and) rent-seeking behaviour, which is inherent in any situation where a population has come out of hyperinflation.

the army chiefs are busy bargaining for 37% allowance increament for their subordinates and u are busy telling your subordinates to pretend always as if everything is good with them. u drive to work in land cruisers and Hilux GD latest which u were given by the gvt so u can join the praise and worship team, you live in houses rented by the gvt, you dont pay school fees for your children, you earn bigger salaries as well a lot of allowances. Dont ever think police will vote for the current gvt, see wht happened in Chikurubi, lets meet in 2023.

Pay them a decent salary first. Yu mutamba yu drive top of the range car, fuel.,airtime allowance which is more than the salary of a constable. Surely with the peanuts yu pay them how do yu expect them to pay for fares. Vote Chamisa vote CCC. Pasi ne zanu pf. Eddee out and his clueless satanic corrupt party
