Government says it is important for Immigration Department Officers to conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times.
Home Affairs Deputy Minister Gerry Chanda said the Immigration departments manning border posts have serious responsibilities due to the nature of their work.
Mr. Chanda warned officers manning border posts at Immigration department to avoid all forms of corrupt practices or risked being suspended or dismissed from work.
He said their role is to manage the border areas in a professional manner on behalf of the Zambian government.
Mr. Chanda said this in Kazungula yesterday when he familiarized himself with the operations of men and women in uniform at Kazungula border post.
He also said the influx of people going to Kazungula is likely to increase because of the Kazungula Bridge project which will soon be commencing hence the need for officers in the area to prepare adequately.
Earlier, Immigration Officer in charge at Kazungula border post Michael Banda assured the Deputy Minister and his entourage that his team was ready for the coming bridge project.
Meanwhile, Kazungula District Administrative Officer Gorretti Bballo highlighted on the number of developmental projects currently going on in Kazungula such as the construction of housing units for police officers among others.
