HARARE – The Deputy Minister of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage, Ruth Mavhunga Mabhoyi, Wednesday told Parliament that spot fines for those who would have broken traffic rules are legal and must be paid on the spot hence the name spot fine.

She also said in the case that one does not have the money at hand, they can make arrangements with traffic officers on payment modalities.

This prompted a follow-up question from fellow members of Parliament to ask if negotiating with police officers on payment modalities is not creating a conducive environment for corruption.

Her response was evasive.

The discussion comes when police officers are being accused of abusing motorists at roadblocks where they will be demanding spot fines.

Scores of police officers were arrested in the past for demanding bribes from motorists caught on the wrong side of the law, even for petty offences.
