COPS BANNED FROM EATING IN PUBLIC

Cops have been banned from eating and smoking in public. They have also been prohibited from walking around with hands in their pockets. 

The orders were given by Comm-Gen Matanga who also banned cops from spending time on mobile phones.

“Acts of walking with hands in pockets, carrying bags while in police in uniform, are now the norm rather than exception. Some members unashamedly spend most of their time swiping on their phones even in circumstances where a high level of alertness is demanded. That has to be corrected.

“We cannot condone deeds that debase our organisation like that. The onus is therefore upon all of us to collectively take bold steps that put a stop to such disgusting practices which apparently are alien to our police discipline. We certainly cannot continue normalising the abnormal,” Comm-Gen Matanga  told senior police officers at the Police Protection Unit (PPU) in Harare yesterday
