Police Launch Operation Targeting "Mushikashika"

Police Launch Operation Targeting

Police in Harare Metropolitan Province on Wednesday, 27 April launched an operation targeting pirate taxis and illegal kombis (mushikashika) and illegal vendors.

The operation will also target unregistered cars, street kids controlling traffic and vendors at intersections.

In a statement, Harare Province Deputy Provincial Police Spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Webster Dzvova said:

The Zimbabwe Republic Police, Harare Province, will conduct an operation to restore sanity and decongest the Harare Central Business District and greater Harare.

The operation will include our stakeholders, including ZINARA, VID, Ruwa Local Board, Chitungwiza Town Council, Epworth Local Board, Harare City Council and the Department of Social Welfare.

The operation will be conducted in all Harare Police districts.

Asst Insp Dzvova said Mushikashika vehicles are contributing to congestion during peak hours in Harare’s central business district. He said:

As Harare Province, we are worried about the congestion during peak hours, and a number of criminal cases emanating from these mushikashikas, and non-ZUPCO commuter omnibuses and buses.

He also warned members of the public against boarding Mushikashika as they may fall prey to robbers. Said Asst Insp Dzvova:

A number of robberies, rape and theft cases have occurred in which victims fall prey to these illegal transporters who misrepresent themselves as transporters, through mushikashika.

We have declared war against these mushikashikas.

We will continuously impound the mushikashika and arrest the drivers. We, hereby, appeal to commuters to avoid mushikashika. Only ZUPCO buses and omnibuses are allowed to operate.

Those with private vehicles are encouraged and warned against picking up strangers as passengers as they may end up being robbed of their motor vehicles.

Motorists should adhere to the rules and regulations of the road like stopping at traffic lights.

had u trained by Moh or u get your qualifacation from other relevent bodies which is not MoH
unoshaya graft sei zvaukutaura ukuti gvnmnt yokuita train yokusiya isirikuku employer?
what i know when th gvnmnt trains you ie EHT,nurses,police,army,zpcs ,ganners they will employ you
why wasting resources to train some1 who dnt help them or who wont offer the service to the state in return

This is purely a waste of valuable resources and time. Police shall never get rid of Mushikashika off the road because ZUPCO buses are in short supply. Mushikashika is filling the gap. May those Policemen be deployed to hunt down armed robbers instead of deploying them on the roads where they will be too happy to fatten their pockets with khaki envelopes

[ VOTE CCC FOR REAL CHANGE ].

we heard your valid contribution citizens
its not that we are surely on duty to remove mushikashika on our roads but the deal is we are raising money for Zanu pf projects,the coffers are dry,Harare province was instructed to raise certain amount which wud be surrendered to the Party

look as usual most Mushika shika business are done by Hwindis ,but the cars who are piraring 90% of thesd cars are owned by ZRP officers
