ZESA Switches Off Police Camp, Officers Threaten to Impound ZESA Cars

Chitungwiza Police Camp has reportedly been without power for two weeks after power utility ZESA switched it off over non-payment of bills.

NewsDay reported sources at the residential flats for police officers, most of whom work in Harare, saying residents have gone for days without water as the boreholes that supply water to households are not functioning.

The police officers said they were not happy with their superiors for failing to act and with ZESA for disconnecting them. A police officer is quoted as saying:

There are now political connotations to it. It is reportedly said that police are blocking demos and the people are saying they should also suffer and feel what everyone is going through.

This is the first time in all these years and we now wonder whether it is not to embarrass the President (Emmerson Mnangagwa).

Police have reportedly threatened to impound unroadworthy ZESA vehicles in retaliation.

National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said he would check with the relevant authorities.
