Top cops seek SA jobs

JOHANNESBURG - Members of the Zimbabwean uniformed security forces of the rank of Chief Inspector and above are abandoning their uniforms to seek greener pastures in South Africa as poverty bites ever deeper.
Some enterprising officers applied for three months paid vacation leav

e and used their payslips to gain entry into South Africa, reports CAJ News.
Zimbabwean civil servants are exempt from applying for visas, provided they can show their current payslips at the SA side of the border. Our crew came across two former women inspectors who had just resigned and were distributing fliers for a college based in Braamfontein.
“We are paid R25 for the whole day. You cannot look down upon that job because we need something to eat and have families to look after back home,” said Makandiedza Zviripi, a former inspector in the ZRP.
Her colleague, Simangaliso Ndlovu, who was stationed at Bulawayo Central Police as Chief Inspector before going on leave said they were finding it difficult to get formal employment.
“The only organizations that employ people without papers are colleges or traditional healers who make their trade by advertising their businesses through fliers which we give out at street corners,” said Ndlovu.
She said she was aware of many other officers who had quit the ZRP and the Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) who were distributing fliers all over Johannesburg Central.
“Morale is at lowest and it is not surprising that not enough recruits are being found to go into the army,” said a former ZNA captain now changing foreign currency at the Park Station. – CAJ News
