Police breakdown

No number plates, no red triangle police vehicle

This police truck was broken down on the busy Enterprise Road filter from Samora Machel. The policeman ‘guarding’ the vehicle was not very amused at seeing me snap away and nearly chased me.

What pisses me off is that, the police here can get away with driving unroadworthy vehicles such as this, and cannot afford to buy those little ‘break-down’ red triangles they are always harassing motorists for. I daresay they also didnt have the $3 reflector vest, $15 fire extinguisher, or working brakes in this vehicle!

This is Zim.

  1. well-done for the snap. this is what all zimbas have got to learn to do. we never know what evidence may be required at the Hague one day. our history books will also need this graphic record. keep it up!
