Lusaka Province Police Commissioner Charity Katanga has dispelled reports that she has been suspended after she was allegedly implicated in a drugs syndicate with some unnamed foreign nationals.
Some media reports indicated that Mrs. Katanga has been suspended and summoned by the Drug Enforcement Commission for questioning on Monday for allegedly engaging in drug trafficking.
Mrs Katanga said people peddling such rumours are enemies within and outside the police service who wish to get rid of her.
She said she has not been suspended and she is diligently executing her duties.
“I know this is the work of the devil through some people within the police service and some outside. I know them and I am not shaken. I am still working and I am in the office now as I speak to you,” she said.
She added, “The devil is a liar and I take back all these rumours to the sender.”
