by Victor Adetimilehin

A Zimbabwean police officer has received an outpouring of support from her colleagues following the birth of triplets and the tragic loss of one of her sons. Constable Linda Nyoni, 33, delivered triplets at Masvingo General Hospital in February 2024. Sadly, one of the boys passed away five days later.

ZRP Women’s Network Steps Up to Help

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) Women’s Network in Masvingo province rallied around Constable Nyoni during this difficult time. Recognizing the challenges of caring for newborn twins, the network provided a heartwarming gesture of support. They donated essential supplies, including food, baby clothes, and other necessities, to assist the Nyoni family.

The ZRP Women’s Network is an initiative within the police force dedicated to improving the lives of female officers. They address issues faced by women in the force, including sexual and gender-based violence. The network also empowers women to excel in their roles as both police officers and mothers.

Leadership Praises Act of Solidarity

Assistant Commissioner Florence Marume, the Masvingo police officer commanding operations, commended the ZRP Women’s Network for their compassion. She described their actions as a “demonstration of love and togetherness,” reflecting the core values of the network.

Marume, who spearheaded the initiative to assist Constable Nyoni, highlighted that the network’s support extends beyond duty. Their actions are driven by a deep love for children and a desire to ensure they have the best possible start in life.

Masvingo Women’s Network’s provincial chairperson, Chief Superintendent Senzeni Maphosa, emphasized their commitment to supporting female officers. The network strives to equip women with the resources and support they need to overcome challenges and thrive both professionally and personally.

Family Expresses Gratitude

Constable Nyoni’s husband, Mr. Andrew Mubatapasango, expressed his sincere gratitude to the ZRP Women’s Network. Their generous donation significantly eased the burden on the family as they adjust to caring for their newborn twins.

Constable Nyoni’s story exemplifies the strength and resilience of women, particularly those juggling motherhood and demanding careers. It also shines a light on the positive impact of supportive communities, like the ZRP Women’s Network, in uplifting and empowering women during challenging times.
