Zimbabwe: Column: When The Law Is Much More Than An Ass

Sun, 09 Sep 2012 07:00:00 GMT

Wed, 10 Mar 1999 08:00:00 GMT

The Zimbabwe Standard, 10 Mar 1999 - Harare - A crackdown on drug traffickers has been promised by Zimbabwe's Criminal Investigation Department, following the donation of $500 000 worth of drug fighting equipment by the United States on Thursday. CID Commissioner, Zacheas Nyathi, told the gathering during the handover ceremony that the donated equipment had come at a critical time. He predicted that newspaper reports would soon appear giving details of successful drug busts made with the use of these new items. The donated package included faxes, computers, printers, two sniffer dog trailers, and funding for two CID narcotic unit officers to attend a two week training course in South Africa, after which they would return with strategic information for fellow officers. American Embassy regional security officer, Jeff Horkey, said his offices had benefited from the services of the Zimbabwe Republic Police, and wanted to make a donation in return.

Harare's cavernous tobacco auction floors, usually a hive of activity, fell almost silent on Monday as the 5,300 growers withheld their leaf in a week-long protest at low prices.
