Green Bombers fed up with cops

Several graduates of the infamous Border Gezi Youth training centres who were incorporated into the Zimbabwe Republic Police as special constabularies have complained about poor working conditions within the force.

More than 15 former Border Gezi trainees here said they had been promised permanent jobs in the regular force, but have been waiting for a long time.

“I joined the police in 2007 after completing my national youth service training at Eagles Youth Training centre. I opted to join the police after I was promised employment. But I am still doing voluntary work for the police force,” said the former graduate.

Said another graduate: “I joined the police as a special constabulary in 2005 towards the parliamentary elections after I was made to understand that I will be eventually sent to Tomlinson Depot for proper training. But up to now I am so frustrated and bitter that nothing has happened.”

The special constabularies told The Zimbabwean they had sent their names and plight to Zanu (PF) controversial minister of Indigenisation and Youth Empowerment, Saviour Kasukuwere for consideration.
