Post election environment calm- Police


Harare (New Ziana)- Police on Sunday reassured the public, business and visitors to the country that the security situation remains peaceful, calm and conducive for all socio-economic activities to prevail.

In a statement, national police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said Zimbabweans should feel free to go to their workplaces, to conduct family and other activities without fear or any form of intimidation from anyone.

“The Zimbabwe Republic Police reiterates that the situation in the country is very calm and the public should certainly feel free to go about their day-to-day activities. The Zimbabwe Republic Police has deployed police officers throughout the country to maintain law and order,” he said.

He said police have unearthed the opposition plans to protest in the capital.

“The Zimbabwe Republic Police is fully aware of attempts by some political activists to mobilize groups of people to move in small numbers and come to Harare for purported briefing and popcorn demonstrations under the guise of citizen voter audit or verification. “This has even been given credence by some social media posts obtained by the Police where some individuals and groups are openly inciting violence and issuing threats aimed at causing alarm and despondence among Zimbabweans.

“The Police will not hesitate to effect arrests on such criminal elements,” he said.

Police also urged political parties to assist in the maintenance of law and order in the country by avoiding unsanctioned car rallies, processions and other celebratory activities without notifying the local regulating authority.

“Finally, the Police continues to applaud and commend Zimbabweans for the exemplary conduct shown during the pre-election and the voting period,” he said.
