Harare (New Ziana) –The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) on Monday said it had re-assigned two senior officers to head the Harare and Matabeleland North Provinces respectively, in an effort to strengthen operational effectiveness.
The two, Commissioner Erasmus Makodza and Commissioner Charles Nhete have swapped roles in transfers made by Commissioner General of Police Godwin Matanga.
“Commissioner Erasmus Makodza has been transferred from Harare Province to Matabeleland North Province as Officer Commanding while Commissioner Charles Nhete has been transferred to Harare Province as Officer Commanding,” ZRP spokesperson Assistant commissioner Paul Nyathi said.
“The public and the media should take note that these are routine transfers meant to strengthen the police’s operational effectiveness.”
In May this year, the ZRP transferred several officers between the rank of inspector and commissioner, in a move meant to improve efficiency in the police service.
This followed the adoption of a new structure which strives to win back public confidence through enhancing efficiency and effectiveness, while eliminate duplication of roles and redundancy in the ZRP.
On top of improving efficiency in the police force, the reforms and adoption of a new structure are expected to help the organisation in its cost-cutting initiatives.
