6 August 2021

By A Correspondent- The Zimbabwe Republic Police have launched a blitz on Kombies which pick and drop people at undesignated places throughout the country ahead of the Heroes holiday.

In a statement Friday, ZRP said any pirate taxis, mushikashika or private vehicles found to be carrying passengers during the period will be dealt with in terms of the country’s laws.

“As from July 2021 to date, the Zimbabwe Republic Police impounded forty-one (41) buses in Masvingo, ten (10) buses in Harare, seven (7) buses in Mashonaland West, five (05) buses in Mashonaland East and four (4) buses in Manicaland for intercity movements in clear violation of the Government’s directive,” said ZRP.

“Transporters are strongly warned against defying the safety measures put in place by Government. Police will only clear commercial cargo and essential services to pass through checkpoints and roadblocks.
Above all, Police officers will conduct stop and search, blitz and raids to account for people who are contravening the Government’s ban on bars, beer halls and nightclubs. Shebeen operators will also be arrested during the holidays”.
