Following a visit last week by the police Commissioner General Godwin Matanga and minister of Home Affairs Kazembe Kazembe which exposed inadequacies in the police operations and the condemnation of the Rujeko police camp due to space and lack of ablution facilities, the city council has offered a 1 hectare piece of land for the construction of a Rujeko station.
City of Masvingo Public Relations Officer (PRO), Ashleigh Jinjika confirmed the development and said council allocated 1.07 hectares to the police to construct a new police camp in Rujeko D.
“The City of Masvingo has allocated 1.07 hectares to the Zimbabwe Republic Police for the construction of a police camp in Rujeko D,” said Jinjika.
The current Rujeko police station has been condemned owing to limited space where police officers including the officer in charge are forced to share a single office.
Rujeko police station is currently operating without toilets and officers use a council public toilet close by.
