The four are Superintendent Innocent Makumbe, Inspector Garikai Jiyane [Officer in Charge, Matapi], Inspector Peace Nyarai Gunhe [Duty Officer] and Assistant Inspector Vengai Mupamhanga [Duty Member].

In a statement on Monday, police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said the four have been suspended from duty by the Commissioner-General of Police Godwin Matanga pending disciplinary action. The statement read:

Investigations conducted have revealed that the senior officer and junior members did not perform their duties according to Police set standards and Government’s Covid-19 regulations in handling the illegal Mbare musical bash held by DJ Fantan and his associates on 31st December 2020.

On Saturday, Nyathi said police were keen on interviewing DJ Fantan over the gig which was held in violation of the curfew order and coronavirus regulations. It has not yet been confirmed if Fantan, who was reportedly on the run, has surrendered himself to police.
