Police warn protestors

HARARE - Police yesterday warned motorists from taking heed of a circulation on social media calling on them not to stop at roadblocks in protest.

In a statement, Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) through its spokesperson Charity Charamba, described the calls from the protest group going by the name “Tajamuka” as “offensive and alarming”.

“Members of the public are being informed that the law will take its course on an individual or gangsters who intend to cause alarm and despondency by encouraging motorists not to stop when they are approached by police officers on traffic enforcement points and roadblocks,” Charamba said.

The group going by the name Tajamuka had, according to ZRP set July 1 as the date to start the protests.

“We want to strongly warn these individuals who are well known for their machinations not to interfere with police operations,” said Charamba.

The endgame protests do not need police clearance. They are the same police people who are failing to arrest ZANU PF thugs who are looting and destroying the economy. This Charity should know that they have presided over confusion and it is time to reap what they sowed. It is the people who give police legitimacy and it the same people who pay the policy, so when we are in the endgame, police game is over.

I totally agree with Tajamuka mvmnt. Charamba and his fellows should put their house in order first before they get to the part of stealing our money on roads, they have always done that. its time we stop them we tired of the regime police. anything zanu pf smells and we saying atichada. once we stop paying those stupid funds at roadblocks then you will understand what we mean by saying there is no money in the country. By the way where do you expect fines to come from when there is no money in circulation? Charamba close your arm pits and keep pleasing your boss. we as citizens we shall figure out whats best for us to survive.

When is a roadblock a roadblock? When it is advised by road signs ahead of it & manned by at least thee officers.Think about it.

Threats will never work. Ian Smith tried it and it never worked.You can't oppress people for decades and expect people to keep quiet.A time is coming when even the coward will see no difference.

Police do actually disrupt the smooth flow of traffic by mounting roadblocks inside traffic circles. This is ridiculous, but still, responsible citizens should stop when asked to do so by the police. It is stupid to defy police, as it brings more disorder, and gives criminals a chance to pass through security roadblocks without being scrutinized. I suggest we obey police instructions at roadblocks.

Law takes its course, what course Charity Charamba do you know. How many times have you willfully broken the laws as enshrined in the constitution not prosecuting ZANU PF thugs. How many times has ZANU PF abused the finances and other resources involved into corrupt money laundering and you never siad a word. CHINAMASA's guy was caught at BEITBRIDGE BORDER POST WITH over $7 000 000 crossing into South Africa by road. Was that money not surrendered back to the guy. Was that money ever went to the bank. Is that money still in Zimbabwe. WHAT DID YOU DO. was Chinamasa asked or ever questioned. GO TO HELL CHARITY CHARAMBA

Police please leave us alone we want to save our monies and that is true. Please attend serious crimes and levae us as we don't want harrasment please. People are hungry and fuming while some police men request cash payment at road blocks for some rather unclear crimes hence when we complaint we don't hate police but let them be humane when they visit our pockets
