Anti-riot police get army training



Anti-riot Police

BULAWAYO

Zimbabwe’s anti-riot police are undergoing military-type training at army barracks around the country in preparation for unrest after the June 27 election.

In Bulawayo, anti-riot police from the Fairbridge police camp have been in training at Llewellyn barracks on the outskirts of the city since last week.

According to police sources, the officers will be deployed a week before the run-off.

The sources said the head of the military junta, Robert Mugabe, could not use the army to quell unrest in cities and towns for fear the international and regional community who would accuse him of a military coup.
