Police launch campaign against Mushikashika

The Zimbabwe Republic Police, in conjunction with the Harare Traffic District Consultative Committee, have embarked on a campaign to raise awareness against boarding Mushikashika.

They believe this could reduce the crime rate.

The campaign comes at a time police are trying to reduce robbery cases among travellers who are losing their valuables while some have been raped.

As a way to reach out to the public, the team moved around Harare on Friday, addressing commuters to board the Zupco-registered buses and kombis.

Harare Province Police Spokesperson, Chief Inspector Tendai Mwanza, said:

It will be a continuous process to reduce crime.

“It’s a continuous awareness where we are going to be educating members of the public in and outside Harare.

“We are receiving complaints from members of the public, after they would have boarded Mushikashika.

“Some end up being victims of robbery and others end up being raped.

“So, we want to make sure members of the public are educated on such matters in order for them to safeguard their lives and valuables.

“As police, we promise to continuously engage members of the public on such issues.”

Added Mwanza:

“I am sure on a daily basis newspapers are reporting that commuters are losing their valuables.

“As police, we are raising awareness, those with concerns of buses visit Zupco offices and get assistance.

“The Government is bringing in many Zupco buses to solve the challenge and we don’t want crime to increase.

“We are urging you to board registered public transport like Zupco.”

The chairman for Harare Traffic District Consultative Committee, Nomore Phiri, said members of the public should use registered transport.

“If you use unregistered vehicles, without number plates, it’s difficult to trace. We are concerned for you commuters, use designated pick-up points like ranks.

“People are being raped in Mushikashika, let’s use registered transport if you want to travel safely.

“People are losing their property in Mushikashika,” he said.
