Government acquires more vehicles
worth $1 million
The Zimbabwe Republic Police has acquired 2
buses, 25 Ford ranger single cab trucks and 28
traffic enforcement vehicles Ford Fiesta B-
Vars worth $1 million. This acquisition has
been described as a “move to bolster
effectiveness against merchants of violence,
errant motorists” by the Herald report.
The newly acquired vehicles were
commissioned by the ZRP boss, Chihuri and
the Minister of Home Affairs Chombo amongst
other government officials present at the
ceremony.

This comes in when Zimbabwe has been
facing uprisings, and it seems the government
is more prepared to crush any uprising than
to ensure that civil servants have their
salaries at the end of the month.
The priorities of the government are being
questioned again by this act, as there hasn’t
been any need to acquire such vehicles,
especially when it means the state funds had
to coffer more than US$1 million.
Zimbabwe is currently having an ailing
economy with salaries for civil servants being
constantly delayed, while a good number of
companies terminate contracts of employment,
leaving millions of Zimbabweans jobless.
It seems the woes of Zimbabwean people will
not end anytime soon.
