MASHAVA – Mashava Police Station which has been entangled in a number of cases where some cops were accused of corruption both in and outside court has seen nine officers being transferred at once.
Lodwin Chaibva who was the officer-in-charge has also been
transferred to Mvurwi Police Station in Mash Central. It is understood that she had appealed for exemption from the transfers allegedly because she is doing some studies but this was not granted
An Inspector only identified as Phiri who is replacing her is understood to have already gone to Mashava for a station visit and Chaibva has also done the same.
Some of the officers were actually accused of allegedly taking bribes in court. Recently Zimra impounded a truck that contained smuggled goods but was never
taken to court as the investigating officers were said to be unwilling to open a docket.
Chaibva was not taking her calls. National Police Spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba said she was at a funeral when The Mirror contacted her for a comment on Tuesday.
The nine officers were transferred to stations scattered all
over the country.
