Case of misplaced priorities.

Another twitter account urged the authorities to install the cameras at the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) saying it is the den of thieves after a video by Acie Lumumba that exposed bosses at RBZ went viral.

Don’t waste money the place that really need cameras is the RBZ. That’s where the people who really break the law are.

A twitter account belonging to one Judith Maponga lamented that traffic lights are not functioning well and there are dangerous potholes in the city yet the council want to embark on traffic cameras.

Then What? Lets start by fixing all the traffic lights that are not working, patch potholes, uninterrupted supply of clean water, fix sewage overflowing in ghettos, collection of refuse, the list is endless and there you are prioritizing cameras
