MURAMBINDA - More than 100 members of Business Against Crime Forum of Zimbabwe (BACFOZ) at Murambinda Growth Point in Buhera are pooling resources together to built a 12-roomed block that will provide accommodation to junior Police officers.
The block is expected to cost about $40 000.
Murambinda (BACFOZ) chairperson, Searchmore Kudenga confirmed the development and said the plan is to complete the building by August this year.
BACFOZ comprises business people from all over Buhera District.
Kudenga said the project was a result of the realization of the acute accommodation problems that particularly face junior cops who have just joined the force as they live in squalor in the growth point's suburbs.
He said such problems would force officers to get late for duty particularly when they are called during emergencies.
"We have discovered that we have few police officers in Murambinda because there is an acute shortage of accommodation. Sometimes crimes take time to be attended to or are left unattended. We realized we need to help our Police by alleviating their accommodation challenges," said Kudenga.
