Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) say they are ready to deal with perpetrators of violence during the referendum and harmonised elections.

Addressing senior assistant commissioners undergoing training on major amendments to the Electoral Act Chapter 2:01 in Harare yesterday, Senior Assistant Commissioner (Operations) Faustino Mazango assured the nation of maximum protection from perpetrators of violence.

This comes at a time when Government has set March 16 as the date for the referendum.
Snr Asst Comm Mazango said the referendum and elections are major national events and law enforcement agents had an obligation to ensure people were afforded an opportunity to exercise their right to vote peacefully.

"Always remember that we are peacemakers for the nation and people regard us as their shield in time of need.

"As peacemakers of the nation, may I categorically warn perpetrators of violence that, no one and I repeat, no one is immune to prosecution, hence all perpetrators of violence should be brought to book regardless of their political affiliation and station in life."




The training programme, he said, mirrored police commitment to selflessly and effectively discharge their constitutional mandate professionally.

National Steering Committee Commander Senior Assistant Commissioner Lee Muchemwa recently said a committee which comprises of 26 officers and one civilian was set up in 2010 to deal with the holding of elections, countrywide.
