The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has broken its silence over the image police vehicle that has gone viral.

Many took the image as a mockery of what has become of the country’s law enforcement agency. And others made it a subject for ridicule.

Apparently, ZRP in a statement set the record straight and thanked Zimbabweans for showing concern over condition of service.

In a thread of tweets, ZRP said:

The ZRP has taken note of the image of a ZRP Karoi Traffic motor vehicle registration number 358R which has gone viral on social media with the damaged windscreen covered with a black plastic sheet.

The public is advised that the vehicle was damaged while attending a scene in Karoi on 03/03/23. The photo was taken while the vehicle was parked at the station covered with the black sheet as it was raining.

The vehicle was subsequently repaired on 06/03/23.

The ZRP sincerely appreciates the public’s concern over the image.
