The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) says has taken note of a twitter post by Pedzisai Ruhanya on alleged unprofessionalism by the Police where it is alleged that Police Zimbabwe liked a certain tweet.

“Please note that the ZRP twitter handle is only used for updating the public on crime matters and policing issues in a professional manner and not liking posts and tweets from individuals or organisations with sinister agendas,” says ZRP.

Ruhanya challenged the police to explain their position regarding the tweet.

And in response ZRP says whoever is trying to hack or interfere with the normal police twitter handle will be investigated and the law will take its course.

Meanwhile, ZRP says with reference to their previous tweet on 12/04/22 on a robbery case which occurred at the Council for the Blind Zimbabwe offices in Bulawayo where a Toyota Land Cruiser vehicle, a safe containing US$44 028, ZAR 49 060, PULA 18 610 and other valuables, all worth US$ 96 228, ZAR 49 060 and PULA 18 060 were stolen.
