Members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) have been banned from buying mealie meal while clad in their police uniforms. This follows numerous complaints that the police officers are abusing their uniforms to gain an unfair advantage and jump the queues for basic commodities such as subsidized mealie meal. Police officers have subsequently been accused of hoarding basic commodities which they would have managed to purchase using their uniforms

As a result of this, the police officers have been banned from buying mealie meal while clad in uniform. Below is a letter from the Bulawayo Provincial Police Headquarters advising of the new regulations:
