ZRP has revealed that they have arrested 65 people who had gathered at a place in Borrowdale for a Pyramid Scheme event ignoring government-imposed COVID-19 containment measures, The Herald reports.

ZRP also suspects the premises where the 65 were arrested from are being used to operate a pyramid scheme. Speaking about the arrests, ZRP National Spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said:

They were arrested in Borrowdale for violating Covid-19 regulations. They were found gathering and there was no social distancing. However police have also launched investigations to ascertain the legal status of the place where the suspects were arrested.

few months ago ZRP arrested 2 brothers who were believed to be operating a Pyramid Scheme in Harare where people lost varying sums of money. Schemes like Amalant and Crowd1 have become popular on social media with some people claiming they are now making a living out of them.
