Police have been urged to shun all forms of corruption by exhibiting high levels of discipline and integrity on and off duty. Speaking at a graduation parade of 82 Support Unit recruits at Shamva Battle Camp last Friday, Officer Commanding Mashonaland Central Senior Assistant Commissioner Mucharwei Mathuthu said engaging in corrupt activities would only discredit the police force.
“I urge you to always avoid polluting your good work with elements of corruption at all times,” he said. “Corruption is both a social and professional ill and is one single factor that has the potential to erode all the public confidence earned over years of excel- lence.
“The eagle emblem that you are going to put on from today onwards is a mark of distinction that should be mirrored by distinctive performance, hence conduct yourselves in a way that befits a member of an elite unit.”
