CITY of Harare Mayor, Jacob Mafume, has warned that some municipal officers could face severe sanctions as he ordered  an investigation into allegations that they brutally assaulted a vendor in the capital this week.

Video footage showed municipal police officers attacking a vendor and Mafume wants a thorough probe into the incident.

“We have called this meeting so that we can deal with some issues that are both housekeeping and of national concern.

‘’We once had a similar meeting with traffic police at a time when residents were complaining about the way some of our officers were enforcing by-laws.

‘’We need to be careful in our method, we are the primary police force in our country.”
