30 Jan 2017 - Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) Traffic cops were on Tuesday afternoon allegedly caught burning suspected fake receipt books that they had been using to fleece unsuspecting motorists.
They reportedly fled the scene after they were cornered by the Anti-Corruption team.
Eye witnesses said the incident happened near Mutimurefu Prison Bus Stop where traffic cops operating along Masvingo-Mutare High way were destroying receipt books which are suspected to having been counterfeit.
"We saw them coming out of a Ford Highway Patrol vehicle with receipt books in hand and lit them. An ant-corruption team then arrived and the cops fled the scene and sped off towards Mutare. The Anti-corruption team started to chase them but I don't know if they managed to catch them," said an eye witness.
Efforts to get a comment from Police were fruitless as Masvingo provincial spokesperson Inspector Charity Mazula was not reachable by the time of going to print.news
