The Zimbabwe Republic Police says the atmosphere is calm nationwide even if there is little activity in the city centre.

Police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba  told ZBC News that they have not recorded any incidences of violence countrywide.

She added that there were instances whereby some people barricaded roads along the Harare-Bulawayo road near the Kuwadzana round-about and in Ruwa.

She, however, said the barricades which included stones and burning tyres, were removed.

Senior Assistant Commissioner Charamba added that police will continue patrolling the roads to maintain peace and order.

She urged commuter omnibus operators to release their vehicles as a number of people who want to go about their businesses are stranded due to lack of transport.

Meanwhile, some civil servants have ignored calls to engage in an illegal strike this Wednesday.

At government buildings such as Mukwati, Kaguvi and Chaminuka among others, it is business as usual.

The situation in the central business district in Harare shows that people are now going to work after delaying due to transport problems.

Some banks in the CBD are also open and a number of grocery retail outlets and some supermarkets are operational except for furniture outlets and shops that sell other commodities.

Commuter omnibus operators at the Fourth Street and Copacabana rank who spoke to ZBC News said business is low as there are few commuters.

Fruit and airtime vendors are trading as usual and there is no heavy presence of police in the CBD.
