Police Concerned As 17 Security Personnel Are Arrested Over Border Crimes

Police Concerned As 17 Security Personnel Are Arrested Over Border Crimes

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi has expressed concern over rampant corruption among police officers.

He singled out Beitbridge as the most corrupt town.

In a statement Friday, Nyathi said 17 corrupt cops have been arrested and brought to court on graft charges in the border town this year.

The Security Services of Zimbabwe are concerned with reports of rampant smuggling at the country’s borders, coupled with accusations of corruption by some deployed members of the services at Beitbridge Border Post.

The security services categorically state that any member who engages in corruption will be arrested without fear or favour as shown in a recent incident where 17 members of the security services were arrested and arraigned before the courts.

Transporters and clearing agents are expected to lead by example and shun acts of corruption and enticing members of the security services through corrupt tendencies.

Critics say the chaos is just the tip of the iceberg of how corrupt government operations have become.

The 17 members of the security forces are part of many others who have been arrested for crimes that include fraud, armed robbery and corruption.

It's a shame talking of corruption on souls that go to serve the nation on an empty stomach. How do you expect them to survive besides curruptly keeping body and soul together? Ppl let's grow up, especially when the nation seconds u to the positions that you are entrusted with. Let's grow up, think the future and stop referring to the past especially when examples needs quoting.

All animals are equal but some are more equal than other. Surprisingly it's only now that someone realises that there is corruption in the force. Joke

Money is the root of all evils varume. Corruption yawandisa muno chero tingawanza mari kana kupihwa $1000 usd. Asi mhere haiperi muno corruption yagara nguva refu yabereka. Kupolice, kuzvitupa, kumacompany. Villages whereever zvakusemesa truth be told.

ZRP must do away with joint operations with the army, prison wardens and custom officials as this brings about the existence of corruption cartels.

Cops are earning peanuts, better to engage in community service assisting the economic suppressed masses crossing the border at an affordable fee. Even the customs officers are doing a splendid job with their assistance, without them unofa urimurombo, for the gvt does not care how much it charges on simple groceries
