HARARE, April 17– The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) have warned they they will maintain a strong presence on the roads during the upcoming Easter holidays and will impound all vehicles which are not properly registered.

ZRP Spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner (SAC) Charity Charamba said here Wednesday that the police were targeting unregistered vehicles because most of them were used in various criminal activities, including armed robberies.

Speaking during an operation here Wednesday which senior officers conducted in Harare’s central business district to familiarize themselves with challenges the traffic police faced, SAC Charamba said: “Such vehicles without number plates the police will immediately impound them. We have an operation which is ongoing to impound vehicles without number plates because such vehicles are used in armed robberies.

“We are saying if you do not have registration please leave your car at home and use public transport because the police will be out there in full force.”

She urged motorists to exercise caution during the holiday period which begins on Friday and ends on Monday next week. The Easter break, like other public holidays, is usually characterized by an increase in road traffic accidents.

ZRP chief staff officer for human resources, SAC Justice Chengeta and chief staff officer for crime SAC Angeline Guvamombe participated in the operation, together with Harare province assistant commissioner for operations, Isaac Tavengwa.
