“I feel like sobbing when I think of the students at tertiary institutions, schools, churches and families at large.

“The issue of abstinence from drugs and substance abuse remains a thorn in my flesh. This pandemic needs concerted effort. Unfortunately the transfer is outside my purview,” said Jindu at a farewell party hosted for her by Nyaradzo Group at their offices in Masvingo City.

“Your friendship and encouragement made a significant impact on my personal and professional growth.

“I could embrace the team dynamics we enjoyed together.

“Had it not been because of the submission by the staff members I had, CID Masvingo could not have scooped the Station of the Year award 2023 southern region and the best station in the country when I was stationed at Murewa. It was awesome being here.

“Regardless of different backgrounds, cultures, drinking habits, age, beliefs and attributes, however we went along well through and through. Gender segregation was never an issue amongst the entire team,” she said.
