Rob­bery cases need at­ten­tion

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

ED­I­TOR — In the wake of re­cent rob­bery re­ports which seem to be on the in­crease, I would like to suggest that the Zim­babwe Repub­lic Po­lice (ZRP) set up a task­force that deals with those is­sues specif­i­cally.

It is dis­turb­ing to wake up to re­ports of rob­bery tri­als ev­ery week, it makes it dif­fi­cult to as­sume safety when mov­ing around.

With the cur­rent bank­ing chal­lenges faced in the coun­try, it is easy for one to be­come a tar­get for these rob­bers.

An aware­ness cam­paign needs to be launched, cou­pled with a crack­down on those known to be par­tic­i­pat­ing in rob­beries.

These sto­ries were iso­lated in Zim­babwe a few years back, months would pass with­out one read­ing about a rob­bery in the press.

Greed seems to be in­fil­trat­ing our so­ci­ety as some are look­ing to make a quick buck with­out fol­low­ing the hard work usu­ally in­volved in earn­ing money.

Our coun­try is known as one of the safest coun­tries in the re­gion. It is the cit­i­zenry’s duty led by the po­lice, to make sure that the sta­tus is not lost.

I have faith in our law en­force­ment and be­lieve that this re­cent scourge will soon be a thing of the past. Kumbi­rai Mar­ingwa.
