Zimbabwe security services warn against criminal behavior  

HARARE, (Xinhua) -- Zimbabwean security services on Monday warned Zimbabweans to abide by the country’s laws and desist from criminal behavior following the deposing of former President Robert Mugabe.

“Let us all remain united and peaceful and respectful of our national laws and by laws. Law enforcement agents are already receiving reports of looting and illegal occupation of other people’s properties, particularly farms and houses,” said Zimbabwe Defense Forces spokesperson colonel Overson Mugwisi at a joint press conference with the police.

“This behavior is criminal and against the spirit of non vengeful retribution and will be met by the full wrath of the law,” Mugwisi said.

Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) spokesperson Charity Charamba said the situation in the country had returned to normal following the inauguration of Emmerson Mnangagwa as interim president on Nov. 24.

She said police were therefore resuming their normal duties after stopping them when the military launched an operation on Nov. 15 that culminated in the resignation of Mugabe on Nov. 21.

“We wish therefore to advise the nation that the ZRP is now assuming its role as stipulated in the Constitution of Zimbabwe,” Charamba said.

“You will soon notice the ZDF and ZRP members conducting joint patrols especially in Harare’s central business district. We urge you all progressive Zimbabweans to respect the country’s laws and cooperate with our officers as they perform their duties,” she said.

Unconfirmed media reports last week said a wheat farm belonging to Mugabe’s daughter Bona had been burnt down by unknown assailants while the homes of some cabinet ministers targeted by the military operation had been raided.
