The Zimbabwe Republic Police has dismissed as fake and doctored press statement issued about the security situation in the country.
The fake statement is dated October 16,2023. The police dismisses this fake statement with the contempt it deserves. “For the record the Zimbabwe Republic Police is not preparing for fresh elections,” said Senior Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi.
“Enquiries have revealed that the fake press statement was photo-shopped, edited and endorsed with fake details for political reasons.”
The ZRP urged the public to focus on the development of the country and avoid using social media to commit criminal offences under the guise of political activism.
“The law will take its course on these criminal elements who want to promote anarchy in the country,” said Ass Comm Nyathi.
He concluded by saying the ZRP is now conducting investigations with a view of arresting this criminal syndicate which issued the false and fake statement ynder the name of ZRP.
