by-election.

Inspector General of Police Stella Libongani says her service has sent a reinforcement comprising 120 police officers to Samfya District ahead of the Bangweulu constituency by-elections to forestall electoral violence.

Ms. Libongani said the presence of Police officers in the district will help prevent acts of violence which have been happening in the recently held by-elections around the country.

The Inspector General of Police said this in Samfya District when she addressed her officers.

Ms. Libongani said the Zambia Police Service intends to deliver a violent free election and would not want to see the violence which happened in Mulobezi by-elections repeat itself elsewhere.

In this regard, check points will be mounted on all roads to ensure that no one from outside brings weapons which could be used for violence.

She however warned police not to infringe peoples’ rights and urged the police officers who will be on check points to effectively search people and vehicles and confiscate any offensive weapons found.

Ms. Libongani cautioned members of the public not to take the law in their own hands but instead report any forms of violence to law enforcement
officers.

The officers in Samfya were asked to coordinate with and embrace other units like the Electoral Commission of Zambia, the civil society and political leaders.

The people of Bangweulu Constituency in Samfya go to the polls next week on August 6th.The seat fell vacant after the death of the area Member of Parliament Chifita Matafwali.

  1. Is Barack Obama black or an interracial mixed child? Or is he colored? Can someone explain please. What if his dad Mr. Obama senior was white and the mother was black Kenyan was he still going to be called black? Why?

    • @Nora, you are so noisy. Because you are black, and you feel pit on your child? Not all children from ubuchende with whites will be presidents.
      Wankana, watemwa umusugu, te papa lelo akakula!!

  2. We are living in a decade of diverting all resources of the country into political activities. Today’s mistakes will the Zambian people tomorrow.

  3. Quite a sad situation indeed!! Election violence has now become a norm to a point where large numbers of police officers have to be mobilised all the time.Before ,police used to be at polling stations only now they have to be everywhere in the constituency.We need effective policing and justicial system to ensure those found wanting are punished severely to put an end to this emerging ugly culture of violence which has potential to create a civil war.

  4. He is of mixed race. Anyone who is not “pure” caucasian is not white according to the racist whites. In america (im not sure about europe) a person of colour is a non white (mostly blacks).
    In south africa (also adopted in zambia) a coloured is someone of mixed race.
