Zimbabwe Republic Police Prohibits Carrying Firearms In Public Gatherings

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has urged individuals and firms authorised to possess firearms to stop carrying and displaying firearms in public places as envisioned in the Firearms Act. In a statement seen by Pindula News, police national spokesperson Assistant Inspector Paul Nyathi said police will revoke licences of those who violate the law. The statement is issued against the backdrop of rising cases of armed robberies across the country. Reads the statement:


The Zimbabwe Republic Police urges members of the public and organisations who are licensed to possess firearms in terms of provisions of the Firearms Act, Chapter 10:09 for various reasons which include cash-in-transit, crop protection, and business premises security to religious comply with the law and stop carrying or displaying such firearms in public gatherings, shopping centres, service stations and other public places.

The Police will not hesitate to enforce the withdrawal of the firearm licences, besides effecting arrests on anyone who abuses the privilege of legally owning a firearm.

The public is therefore reminded to take this warning seriously. Meanwhile, all licensed firearm holders should ensure that firearms are properly and safely secured at all times to curb cases where they end (up) in (the) wrong hands.

I personally, am happy with the laws concerning possession of firearms in our country. Basically there are two main reasons for which one may apply for the possession of firearms in Zimbabwe. These are for cash protection and farm produce protection.

In our country firearm licences are applied for through the mother station or local police station who will check in the station Crime Register for any breach of violent crimes. The local station will also check the gun cabinet, take fingerprints of the applicant and forward them to CID fingerprints.

If the license is issued, the mother station keeps the record of the use of the bullets. If a bullet misses from the comparison with the previous visit, police demand an update of how the missing round was used. Our gun control is watertight.
