  1. This is good Police should continue cramping on these guys because if Chibolya is left un checked then our generation will have nothing good to talk about in that compound thanx to aunt Stella Libongani

    • What is Kambwili doing for he youths? That age group falls under his ministry. I can also blame HH for stopping Kabimba’s plan to send them to Sudan.

  2. this is very good news . the sad part is that they are all youths . what does our future hold if all our youths are involved in such activities .

  3. Thanks for cops job well done. unfortunate the real drug pushers are not arrested. the arrested youths are being used by the big guys. please interrogate the youth to reveal the big fish in this illegal activity of business , which may destroy our future leaders
