Bulawayo Police have arrested scores of Bulawayo residents who travelled to the CBD  on Friday. The citizens were accused of violating lockdown regulations.

Zimbabwe is currently under an indefinite Level 2 of the National Lockdown.

Online publication CITE spoke t Bulawayo Police Spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube who said, "This is not an operation but we are continuing efforts to abide to the lockdown regulations. We had given people the leeway to see how they reason but clearly they did not follow the regulations. We are still under Level 2 of the lockdown and any movement without purpose is not allowed.

"The letters are supposed to show why someone is moving from point A to B but pedestrians were disregarding the regulations and social distancing. When people were moving about, it didn't mean we had reneged on our duty, no, but we were giving them time to reason. Now we are ready to show them that their movement is illegal."
