Introduction The Matabeleland Branch, alongside other branches based in Zimbabwe, used to fall under the wing of the Central Branch until the latter was disbanded and formed into a Central Advisory Committee. The Matabeleland Branch now stands as an autonomous body with its own constitution and serves the interests of former members of the force in the Matabeleland region.
