‘Municipal police demanding bribes’

485 People Arrested For Violating Lockdown Restrictions

City of Harare municipal police is reportedly demanding bribes from vendors, tuckshop owners, and beer outlets found wanting during their COVID-19 lockdown operation.

The accusations are that in high-density areas, a number of vendors, tuckshops and beer outlets illegally operating during the 21 days of lockdown have become targets of municipal police individuals soliciting bribes.

A number of vendors and tuckshop owners in Kambuzuma suburb, who preferred anonymity, opened up to H-Metro and revealed that the council officers demand a minimum of US$5 for one to get away with a penalty.

However, Harare City Council’s corporate communications manager Michael Chideme said such reports have not come to their attention.

“So far, we haven’t received reports of that nature. Council does not condone such behavior and urges members of the public to make reports if any member of our municipal police is found demanding bribes.

“There must make reports to the office of the Town Clerk along with the evidence, be it pictures or names of the perpetrators.

“We encourage the fight against coronavirus and if this is happening it would be a case of concern.

“We also appeal to the public to bring forward those tuckshops paying bribes because it takes two to tangle,” said Chideme.
