THE Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) and Harare municipal police officers engaged in running battles with vendors and scores of people who sought to defy the government's call to stay at home as the country entered its second day of a 21-day lockdown aimed at curtailing the spread of the deadly coronavirus (Covid-19).

Scores of people had to be pushed out of the city centre by the police after failing to produce the relevant documents warranting them to be in the CBD.

Only police and municipal police officers were seen patrolling almost every corner of the streets, ensuring people were not loitering for no apparent reason.

National police spokesperson Paul Nyathi yesterday confirmed that while many Zimbabweans took heed of the call to stay at home, there were others who had defied the call.
