The opposition UPND has expressed worry that the Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja has already started showing signs of unprofessionalism.
UPND Chairman for Rural Reconstruction and Development Moono Mapani says when the new Police Chief was been sworn in recently he swore to defend the constitution but that it is worrying that he has opted to start serving the interests of the party in power.
Mr. Mapani says the opposition political party is making frantic efforts to engage Mr. Kanganja so that there is fair application of the Public Order Act in the political sphere.
He says Mr. Kanganja is an educated lawyer who should understand well that he is in that office to protect all people and not do things to appease the appointing masters.
He has reminded the Police IG that he is in office to uphold Article 104 of the Constitution of Zambia and not to serve the interests of the PF.
Mr. Mapani says the UPND is worried that the Police IG is slowly loosing focus and has started showing fruits of unprofessionalism.
He says it is for this reason he is hoping that the police IG will keep the doors to his office open so that the opposition and other stakeholders can freely engage him on matters of great concern to the peace and stability of the nation.
