Minister clarifies on Mberengwa Police District Office establishment
Published: 16 October 2018 (229 Views)
THE deputy MINISTER of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Mike Madiro has clarified the government's position of the establishment of Mberengwa district Police offices.

"Let me from the onset point out to the Hon. Member that ZRP Mberengwa is a station that falls under the purview of Zvishavane district.  This district already has its own Officer Commanding whom the member correctly refers to as the Dispol.  May it please the Hon Member to note that Zvishavane district has four operational stations under its command and these are Mberengwa, Zvishavane, Buchwa and Mataga," he said.

"ZRP Mberengwa is only 31km from Zvishavane and in this regard it is not feasible to establish yet another district, given the distance that separates the location of ZRP Mberengwa and ZRP Zvishavane district.  Madam Speaker, in short, there is already Dispol or Officer Commanding District which is ZRP Zvishavane District Headquarters and this is the district where ZRP Mberengwa falls under."

He said indeed, it is true that in the past three weeks, three cases of murder were committed in Mberengwa.

"These murders emanated from disputes during beer drinks.  In order to curb such crimes, the Zimbabwe Republic Police has since increased patrols in Mberengwa.  Additional manpower has been seconded to the area to intensify patrols and at the same time raise awareness on the effects of engaging in criminal activities.  The ZRP is also currently intensifying community engagement processes to find a lasting solution to this problem.  These strategies are also being employed throughout the country," he said.
