Speaking at the ceremony, Chief Superintendent for Harare Suburban, Takayiteyi Chitekwe, said the acquisition of a new vehicle would help ZRP Ruwa’s capacity in entrenching peace and security in the country.

“The donation came at a time when the ZRP operations were hamstrung by inadequate resources.

“As you may be aware, ZRP Ruwa had no vehicle to use, it relied on the assistance of other stations.

“The gesture which is set by Petrozim Line as an organization will go a long way in enhancing the station capacity to fight crime.

“More importantly, the donation will immensely improve our operational efficacy in peace and security which is a vital ingredient for economic development and prosperity of our country.

“Fighting crime is not only reserved for police alone, everyone can play a part in this regard,” he said.

He added:

“At the same time, I must acknowledge that ZRP Ruwa has been benefiting a lot from different stakeholders who have been extending a helping hand in one way or another of note Ruwa local board sacrificed two of their houses which are used as a police station.”
