Crime rate increases in Mufulira – Muulwa

Economy Crime rate increases in Mufulira - Muulwa

Mufulira District Commissioner (DC) Dyford Muulwa has expressed concern at the increasing cases of crime where residents  are being reportedly  beaten and attacked by suspected criminals in Kamuchanga Township in the border town of the Copperbelt Province.

And the Mufulira DC has meanwhile called for increased patrols and deployment of
more security officers on the ground following the reported incidents of attacks on residents in Kamuchanga.

Mr Muulwa says his office has been overwhelmed by reports of people being attacked
late at night, adding that he has so far received three cases of assault which happened last Friday alone.

And Mr. Muulwa last evening (Saturday) paid  a surprise visit to Kamuchanga Police
Station at around 18.30 hours so that he could speak to officers there in the wake of  numerous reports of residents being attacked.

But the Mufulira DC was disappointed to find that only one police officer was on duty at the time of his visit.

Mr. Muulwa wondered how the officer could respond to an emergency since he was only
manning the station alone.

And when asked why he was alone, the Constable who was on duty had no definite answer.

The police officer said he did not know why he was on duty alone, saying the station
inspector could be in a better position to answer.

Later Mr. Muulwa complained to a ZANIS reporter who had accompanied him that it was
surprising that there were too many officers manning road blocks and wondereed why
such officers could not be deployed on the ground.

Over the last few weeks two employees from ZAMTEL in Mufulira were beaten by
suspected criminals in Kamuchanga.

Kamuchanga Township is highly populated with over one thousand residents.



  1. Muulwa obviously unable to control his district, maybe he should change to police commissioner and do his job!
