Police spokesman Wayne Bvudzijena said on Wednesday the operation had slashed crime in Harare adding that 42,415 people had been arrested, fined or had their goods seized.
He said 120,000 people were left homeless after their structures were demolished. Aid groups and churches, who have condemned the operation, put the figure at 200,000."We observe that crimes such as plain robbery, murder and theft have declined because we have cut the ready market that criminals had for stolen goods,"
Yup. have the government thugs demolish houses and confiscate their goods will prevent these goods from being stolen by honest criminals...
