VP Mujuru urges police to shun corruption

-

Vice-President Joice Mujuru yesterday urged the police to shun corruption and conduct themselves in a manner that would not put the name of the police force into disrepute.

Speaking at a pass-out parade of 308 police officers at Natabazinduna Training Depot near Bulawayo, Mujuru said as law enforcement agents, police were expected to conduct themselves with diligence, integrity and loyalty to the country.

“As police, let us desist from criminal acts, which may be caused by work-related stress caused by inter-personal issues, such as divorce, alcoholism or alcohol addiction and abuse of power especially at roadblocks,” said Mujuru.

“In the same vein, the public is reminded that they are equally not immune to arrest.

“We are all aware that the consequences of committing crime are devastating and would obviously leave your families worse off.”

She also urged police officers to actively participate in the country’s indigenisation drive.
“Police officers, like every other Zimbabwean, should also benefit from economic empowerment but this empowerment should be done through rightful means,” Mujuru said.

Mujuru said as the country was finalising the draft constitution which would be followed by a referendum and then national elections, it was important for politicians to urge their supporters to cultivate a spirit of tolerance to avoid unnecessary clashes.
