Four Senior Police Officers Suspended From Duty Over The Mbare Concert.

Four senior police officers have been suspended from duty after failing to perform their duties in handling the illegal Mbare musical concert which was held by DJ Fantan

The event which was held and was going against Covid 19 lockdown restrictions has received criticism from many. The Musical concert attracted a huge crowd of people.

According to iHarare, the police have been roundly criticised for failing to stop the event, even though Matapi Police Station is located close to where the “2021 Welcome Passa Passa” concert was taking place. Following the criticism, Zimbabwe Republic Police boss, Commissioner-General Godwin Matanga had to take action thus suspending four senior police officers at Matapi.

This was revealed in a statement issued by ZRP national police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi on Monday. The statement reads,

The Zimbabwe Republic Police confirms that Superintendent Innocent Makumbe, Inspector Garikai Jiyane [Officer in Charge, Matapi], Inspector Peace Nyarai Gunhe [Duty Officer] and Assistant Inspector Vengai Mupamhanga [Duty Member] have been suspended from Police duties by Commissioner General of Police pending disciplinary action.

Investigations conducted have revealed that the senior officer and junior members did not perform their duties according to Police set standards and Government’s Covid-19 regulations in handling the illegal Mbare musical bash held by DJ Fantan and his associates on 31st December 2020.
