The Minister of Home Affairs Kembo Mohadi says the Government will use technology at police-roadblocks to transmit details of transactions directly to Police General Headquarters in Harare as part of measures to reduce corruption in the police force.

Addressing heads of Government departments during a meeting to unpack the Zim-Asset programme in Beitbridge Mohadi said Government has adopted a zero tolerance stance on corruption.

He said police will soon be having gadgets that will be recording every transaction at road blocks with the view of reducing cases of rent seeking and wheeler-dealing at these points.

Minister Mohadi said it is morally wrong for police officers to compete with members of the public by operating pirate taxis and omnibuses as this breeds corruption.

Mohadi said his ministry has fired a lot of police officers after they were found engaging in clandestine activities.

"We need to bring back confidence in the police force by getting rid of bad apples among us. We will continue dismissing those found on the wrong side of the law while others will be taken to the courts for prosecution," he said.
