  1. How do police officers in kitwe afford such vehicles ? Some officers in kitwr drive toyota landcruisers . They have money to pay of a loan go drinking daily,

  2. Improve your journalism. …..”to afford” to avoid? So sad cage this policeman and let the law prevail. As for land cruisers, let that man drive he works hard, I know him personally.

  3. Zambian police officers are the most USELESS i have come across. When police aren’t useless, then they’re sadistic bullies. Some policemen, are thugs who take a cruel pleasure in beating and tormenting people they don’t like, for no reason at all.

  4. The so called Traffic Police “Off sides” are the most incompetent, ignorant and reckless drivers I personally have seen in my 35 years long of road use. I even wonder what kind of leaders this country has that allow these blind and backward men to lead those with sight on the road. One of them asked me why my 2014 model car only had one sticker on the windscreen. I just told the fool to go and ask his Boss that stupid question and drove off. My friend was also asked why the Mercedes he was driving only had one wiper. He advised him to go and ask the manufacturer. Another one asked the motorist to open the boot of a panel van, the list goes on, why surely have G7 drop outs as policemen and Women?

  5. Condolences Gentleman and may your spouse recover quickly. Now my views: The so called Traffic Police “Off sides” are the most incompetent, ignorant and reckless drivers I personally have seen in my 35 years long of road use.
