Deal with traffic cops along Chiremba Road

EDITOR — I believe there is a lot of corruption involving traffic police along Chiremba Road on the way to Epworth.

In most cases one can find at least three roadblocks on this road which is only  twenty-something kilometres from the city.

Surely three roadblocks on a 22 kilometre stretch? One can find Hatfield police,the notorious police benz, police motorbike and lately Domboramwari police have just entered the fray.

The sad part is, if one gets a ticket say from the motorbike police,the Hatfield police manning the next roadblock will issue you another ticket and refuse to acknowledge the other.

Do police stations co-ordinate on roadblocks? How many checkpoints should police have on a single road?

We actually have names of some of the most corrupt police officers on this road and  I would like to ask the members in charge of Hatfield, Domboramwari and others to somehow open a channel for us to give them our concerns directly and deal with this scourge

As it is, it takes close to an hour to get from Epworth to the city centre.

I beleive that this guy ari kunyora complaint haazivi mutemo wemuroad and kana aine driver's licence akaita yekutenga. Mutemo unotaura zviri clear kuti kana wapihwa ticket, park your car wotanga wagadzirisa zvawapihwirwa ticket before you continue driving on the country's roads. Kuti mupurisa arambe kuacknowledga ticket iroro is very correct because your vehicle would still be deffective and kuti akusiye uchienda kungonzwisisanawo sevanhu, but anotofanirwa kukupa rimwe ticket. PLEASE ENDAI MUNONZWISISA MUTEMO WEMUROAD MUSATI MATANGA KUCOMPLAINA

Hi there are regulations that police have to follow, they cannot just set up roadblocks anywhere like they do in that road, courts have to approve speed trap locations, road blocks locations and ticket issuing depends on the offence , if the vehicle is dangerous for the road then it should be impounded, if only my fellow Zimbos knew the position of the law we would bring these corrupt and lawless actions by officers to book.

@Jahman u mean if am driving home to Epworth and i get ticket for worn out tyres i should park my car till i buy new tyres before i get home. Hazvina sense zvaurikutaura. This guy is simply complaining kuti we cant have 3 police roadblocks on a 20km stretch. E.g from Kuwadzana you find the following roadblocks 1 at the carve after Kuwadzana 4, 2 at Marimba intersection, 3 at Highglen, 4 just after the robots to glenview daz this make any sense

ah/ you are worried about 3 roadblocks only over a 20 km stretch/ that's nothing . come to mutare. between rowa and mutare city(20 km) there are 8 roadblocks + benz yechi 9. kombis take one and half hours to reach town insteady of 10 minutes. between mutare teachers college and town (only 5 km) there are 3 roadblocks, one at m.t.c main gate, the other 200 metres away at red cross centre and the third at fly over. iri nyaya yema road block, nyarara zvako. its our daily bread. tatojaira bcoz hazvichinje even if you talk talk talk.

Ma pickpockets anotoziva kuti mapurisa arikuroad, vanoba mudzimba vanoziva kuti mapurisa ariku road, vanoba mombe vanoziva kuti mapurisa ari mu road, robbers know the police vari mu road. You sometimes wonder if there are any more police patrols in our living areas except roads. Munodaidzira mbavha from street to street the whole location but you will never see a policeman.

Kombi driver do you think officer's in charge don't know this, they share the loot. Inga wani they say it is not allow to smash a kombi windscreen but has it stopped? What they talk is not what they walk se zanupf yacho square square.
