Dont Be Photographed In Situations That Display Poverty, Police Officers Ordered

12 May 2022

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.

Kenya, Zimbabwe excluded from Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers – Sportstar

Kenya and Zimbabwe have been booted out of qualifiers for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations finals after failing to have their FIFA suspensions set aside by this week’s deadline, the continent’s governing body said.

The football associations of both countries have been suspended for “political interference” and were only included in the draw for the qualifiers on the proviso they would be cleared by FIFA to compete.

“The two associations; Football Kenya Federation and the Zimbabwe Football Association will be considered losers and eliminated from the competition,” the Confederation of African Football (CAF) said in a statement on Tuesday.

“Groups C and K will be composed only of three teams and the order of the matches will be maintained in accordance with the match schedule.”

The top two sides in each pool advance to the finals in Ivory Coast next June and July.

Kenya had been included in Group C along with Cameroon, Namibia and Burundi. It had been scheduled to travel to Yaounde on June 4 for its pool opener.

Zimbabwe was  in Group K with Morocco, South Africa and Liberia.

Morocco, who has also qualified for the World Cup, was scheduled to play back-to-back games against Zimbabwe in September and will now be able to set up friendlies against tougher opponents to boost its preparations for Qatar.

Both Kenya and Zimbabwe’s associations were dissolved by their respective governments last year and subsequently suspended by FIFA in February.

Kenya’s sports ministry disbanded its football federation as president Nick Mwendwa was charged with multiple counts of fraud, while the executive committee of Zimbabwe’s association was dissolved amid allegations of the misappropriation of funds.
