Central Province police commanding officer Brenda Muntemba has complained that ZESCO power outages are adversely affecting the operations of the police service and compromising security.

Ms. Muntemba made the complaint at the meeting of provincial heads of governement departments addressed by permanent secretary Mr. Denny Lumbama in the boma conference hall in Kabwe today.

She also complaiend of poor water reticulation system in police camps such as Chowa, Kasanda and Milika Tembo saying this was not encouraging to the officers in these camps.

Her complaint on ZESCO power outage was echoed by the provincial director of health Dr. Dickson Suya who said the power outages were making medicines/vaccines stored in fridges to go bad.

And addressing the provincial heads, Mr. Lumbama who was flanked by his acting deputy permanent secretary Mr. Luke Mankapi announced that governemnt would this year construct four boarding high schools in the province at a cost of K24 billon.

He urged them to concentrate on implementing government development programmes so that people could see what government was doing.

Mr. Lumbama was informed that the Road Traffic and Safety Agency (RTSA) had impounded 25 pirates taxis in Kabwe some of which were owned by governemnt workers.


  1. Point of correction she is not ms muntemba she is a married woman.Mrs……………….. or maybe in the police service when a woman is married she remains a ms please make me understand this.

  2. Bwana Mapenzi Mudenda, in trying to make a viable correction you have ended up confusing yourself further. Nevetheless, the usage of MS does not mean one is not married. According to gender classification, MS means one is either married or not. follow closesly now. the word MISS means in gender terms one is missing something and not that one is single. And when the word MRS is used it means one is owned by MR.
    Now lets put this way again.
    MS = married or not.
    MISS = has none
    MRS = owned by MR
    So in conclusion the best is to use the word MS. I hope wanvela naiwe uphunzise banzako.
