This follows the organisation’s failure to carry out its constitutional mandate due to financial challenges.

The ZPCS says the fuel crisis is expected to normalise this week after securing some financial assistance from the government.

ZPCS spokesperson Chief Superintendent Priscilla Mtembo says Harare and surrounding areas are expected to receive their fuel allocation this Friday (tomorrow).

The fuel challenge had affected the transportation of inmates to court thereby delaying the justice delivery process.

The organisation requires about 18 000 litres of diesel and 5 000 litres of petrol every month in order to carry out its mandate across the country.

The ZPCS is a major partner in the justice delivery system that requires capacity building if the country is to achieve world class justice.-zbc
