Corruption rife in ZRP

Commuter operators and commuters here have accused traffic police in the city and environs of soliciting for bribes and mounting road blocks unnecessarily.

Commuter omnibus drivers say they are often forced to stop at several road blocks and speed traps within a short distance of each other. Not only does this delay trips but also puts commuters at risk as some taxi operators take unsafe routes and speed in a bid to evade police.

The alleged corruption of traffic police officers has not been addressed and continues to escalate despite efforts made by BPRA to have the Officer Commanding Bulawayo Superintendent, Henry Mhlanga, look into the issues and penalize those found guilty. Residents have lost faith in the police force as they say officers pursue personal gains instead of ensuring the safety and security of residents.
