The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has with immediate effect banned the use of hand held spikes by Police officers whilst performing traffic enforcement duties throughout the country.
‘’Any police officer who will defy this directive will be arrested and face both criminal and stern disciplinary action,” said General Commissioner of Police Matanga.
‘’No Police officer is will be allowed to move around whist carrying spikes under the guise of traffic enforcements.’’.
‘’The Police also appeals to the drivers to stop whenever directed to do so by the police officers on the roads.
‘’We have observed that in major cities like Harare and Bulawayo some kombis and private taxis especially those with no number plates do not stop at police roadblocks.’’
