Two fake cops arrested while ‘enforcing’ lockdown measures

By Nompumelelo Sibanda

POLICE in Matebeleland North have busted two men who masqueraded as cops while extracting bribes from local businesses.

Lucky ran out for the two when they were fished out by one businessman who called in the police. POLICE spokesperson Paul Nyathi confirmed the arrest.

“The ZRP has arrested David Ndlovu (29) and Posent Nyathi (32) on 22 February, at Lupote Business Centre, Dete for impersonating police officers.

“The suspects went to the business centre clad in police uniform before enforcing COVID-19 regulations and accepting bribes from shop owners,” he said.

Nyathi added that an alert shop owner noticed an anomaly on their dressing and confronted them leading to their arrest and recovery of stolen property.

Early this month, an Epworth man was arrested when he tried to extract a bribe from Harare lockdown violator right infront of Harare Central Police station. The man was presenting himself as a police officer. – Zimbabwe Voice 🔺
