|Rujeko police station|
Following a visit last week by the
police Commissioner General Godwin Matanga and minister of Home Affairs Kazembe
Kazembe which exposed inadequacies in the police operations and the
condemnation of the Rujeko police camp due to space and lack of ablution
facilities, the city council has offered a 1 hectare piece of land for the
construction of a Rujeko station.
City of Masvingo Public Relations
Officer (PRO), Ashleigh Jinjika confirmed the development and said council
allocated 1.07 hectares to the police to construct a new police camp in Rujeko
“The City of Masvingo has allocated
1.07 hectares to the Zimbabwe Republic Police for the construction of a police
camp in Rujeko D,” said Jinjika.
The current Rujeko police station has
been condemned owing to limited space where police officers including the
officer in charge are forced to share a single office.
Rujeko police station is currently
operating without toilets and officers use a council public toilet close by.
