Zimbabwe Republic Police has warned that it will soon be offloading redundant senior officers ‘who adopt a lackadaisical approach’ to their work once they have attained higher ranks in the force.
Police Commissioner-General Dr Augustine Chihuri said commanders at Police General Headquarters were keeping a forensic eye on all activities taking place in all the provinces.
He was addressing senior police officers attending an Assistant Commissioners’ Seminar 1/2016 in Harare today.
“I am however aware of some senior officers who are in the habit of passively resisting directives and a penchant for adopting a ‘wait and see’ attitude hoping that we will not follow up on our expectations.
“Let me stress this and make my stance abundantly clear; the Command at Police General Headquarters is keeping a forensic eye on all activities taking place at your (assistant commissioners’) respective provinces. There are those who decide to adopt a lackadaisical approach towards work, either thinking that they have gotten the ranks they aspired for, or that they have seen it all in their current ranks,” he said.
“If there are such people among this group, they will have no one to blame but themselves should they suddenly find themselves offloaded.”
