Police Will Not Hesitate To “Shoot To Kill” Armed Robbers - Matanga

Police Will Not Hesitate To “Shoot To Kill” Armed Robbers - Matanga

Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) Commissioner-General Godwin Matanga said that people who possess unregistered firearms shall be deemed to be planning to commit serious crimes.

Matanga said police officers will not hesitate to kill all perpetrators of serious crimes such as armed robbery.

He was speaking at the funeral wake of Inspector Maxwell Hove, who was killed in the line of duty in Hwedza by Jaison Muvevi, a former police officer. Said Matanga:

I wish to categorically state that those with unregistered firearms shall be deemed to have criminal intent.

Furthermore, as police officers, we will not hesitate to shoot to kill all perpetrators of heinous crimes such as armed robbery, which are making society apprehensive.

He said police have also noted with concern an increasing number of unregistered firearms recovered at crime scenes.

In August 2022, President Emmerson Mnangagwa granted a presidential amnesty on the voluntary surrender of firearms and ammunition.

Police assured those who surrendered their firearms that no criminal charges would be preferred against them during the period (8th August to 30th September 2022) as long as they complied with the provisions of the Presidential Amnesty. | The Sunday Mail

Matanga is talking nonsense. Doesn't he know are armed robbers are his employees and zna guys? Saka vachangupfuranaka ndipo. Vanhu vose vanofara nepfuti mapurisa nemasoja, only a few vanenge vasiri mapurisa. And a few ivavo pfuti vanopiwa nemapurisa vachito robber vose. Uyu muvheyi was a police man. Saka pfuranai ikoko, isu hamione ipapo.

It's you the security personnel who are robbing us... Very few individuals who doesn't have police or solider background are able to us those guns.

The COMMISSIONER seems to be talking common sense. However my thought goes this need to be deliberated in e parliament. For instance starting from the cause making comparisons w yester years. Apart from that scrutinising who are mostly e offenders of this type of crime and why is this so. It is very unfortunate e fingers are pointing at Xpolice and soldiers.

One is recruited as police officer at 18-20 yrs, after serving 20 yrs he is forced to retire at 38-40 yrs, with these govt pensions you expect him to survive and send his kids to school.... They resort to robbery because the next employment available to these guys is being a security guard, for which they don't like to downgrade themselves

We will not hesistate to shoot to kill, says the police which was outgunned by a lone gunman not once but twice. In the first of the incidences losing a loaded pistol and rifle as they bolted for dear life. Hanzi "the gun jammed", so if a gun jams do you abandon it kana unomhanya wakaibata

Goodwin Matanga should address the issue of loose guns in the country, serving or retired soldiers, cops and cio operatives with the assistance of few civilians feature most in armed robbery cases, who is deploying them out to commit crimes. The problem of armed robbery comes direct from Matanga's doorstep and his counterparts.
