Zimbabwe’s security firms are calling on the government to stamp out bogus operators who are allegedly reaping off clients of their hard earned cash by offering poor services.

The Security Association of Zimbabwe annual general meeting held in the capital this weekend saw operators expressing concern over the rise in bogus security firms that have in most instances failed to provide relevant services in line with stipulated regulations.

Security Association of Zimbabwe incoming president Mr Bernard Nhepera says the security firms are now in talks with regulatory authorities to stamp out the bogus security companies while focus is  also being put in place on quality services.

“Indeed we are now doing our best to focus on the good quality systems,” said Mr Nhepera.

Some of the issues that were under spotlight at the meeting included the rise in registered local operators, compliance to requirements,  provision of adequate facilities, increase in volume of services as well as the need to monitor and review operating systems.
