Zimbabwe Republic Police vs. NewsDay (7 February 2018)

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) registered a complaint with the Media Complaints Committee (MCC) over a story published by the NewsDay on 6th February 2018 headlined, “ZRP Masvingo Projects Collapse”.

The ZRP raises the following issues in their letter of complaint:

 

  • That the NewsDay story in question is recycled from an article published by the Masvingo Mirror in April 2015 headlined, “Junior Cops up in arms against forced contributions”.
  • That the story is designed to continue denigrating the integrity and image of the ZRP and represents unethical and unprofessional conduct.

 

Status: Pending

 The NewsDay Editor, Wisdom Mdzungairi, is yet to respond to the complaint.
