THREE Harare-based traffic police officers landed themselves in trouble after they solicited for a $10 bribe from a kombi driver.

Willard Muzavazi, 28, Tapiwa Chingoriwo, 30, and Nyasha Fore, 26, appeared before magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa facing criminal abuse of office charges.

They were remanded to January 30 on $50 bail.

According to prosecutors, the trio are currently attached to the ZRP "No Mushikashika Operation."

The complainant is the state represented by Tacious Bosha attached to PGHQ internal investigations.

On January 6, and acting in common purpose, the trio approached a kombi which was being driven by Figo Machemedze.

Machemedze was in company of his conductor Welcome Zhou.

The two were picking passengers at an undesignated point when the trio threw a spike in front of the wheels and informed the driver that he was under arrest.

They then demanded $20 in order to let the two continue picking passengers at the undesignated zone.

To cover the offence, the trio then gave the driver an already issued national traffic receipt which had been receipted by Southerton police.

They were then apprehended by the internal investigations team and a search was conducted and the $10 note was recovered.

Audrey Chogumaira appeared for the state.
