POLICE ACQUIRE $1M VEHICLES

Police have acquired buses, utility trucks and traffic enforcement vehicles worth $1 million to be used to maintain law and order countrywide. The vehicles include two buses, 25 Ford Ranger single cab trucks and 28 traffic enforcement Ford Fiesta B-Cars.Speaking at the commissioning ceremony of the vehicles in Harare yesterday, Home Affairs Minister Dr Ignatius Chombo, said the two buses were outstanding from the previous delivery commissioned by President Mugabe in May last year.

President Mugabe officially commissioned a fleet of 97 vehicles at a ceremony held at Morris Depot in May last year. The fleet included 77 trucks and 20 buses.
Said Dr Chombo; “So, today (yesterday), we are in essence commissioning 25 operational Ford Ranger single cab trucks and 28 traffic enforcement Ford Fiesta B-cars, which were purchased at a cost of $948 250.

“It is no doubt that this new fleet of vehicles will go a long way in enhancing your efforts in maintaining law and order, in particular, enforcing good behaviour by road users,” Dr Chombo said.
He said due to the high carnage on the roads, road safety was a matter of national urgency. Police Commissioner-General Dr Augustine Chihuri, said the force’s visibility was a deterrent measure and essential ingredient to the prevention of crime.
