Home Affairs Minister Davis Mwila says the Zambia Police service has deployed more officers to Southern Province to ensure people and property are protected from violence perpetrated by political cadres.

Mr Mwila says the police service is training all officers so that they are professional in policing public gatherings.

He was presenting a ministerial statement in Parliament.

Mr Mwila urged politicians to instruct their members to conduct their political activities peacefully.

Meanwhile, Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja has assured the public that the Zambia Police Service will be firm in dealing with perpetrators of political violence.

Mr Kanganja says the Police will not condone acts of violence as the country heads for the general election.

He also announced that the police will hold a meeting with stakeholders to discuss issues of policing the elections.

Mr Kanganja was speaking at The Oasis of Love Ministries on the Copperbelt, at a fellowship that was organised to pray for peace in the country ahead of the general election.

Speaking at the same event Chairman of the Kitwe Pastor’s Fellowship, Raddy Lewila said the church is willing to work with the government of the day.

Pastor Lewila also advised church leaders to desist from engaging in politics.

    • This is really harassment where is the Non Partisan Church with integrity to stand up for the people. Were more Police Officers deployed after the Ndola Airport incidence or other violence incidences.

    • Why send police to the tire province when the incidence only happened in one locality? Why did the police act in the same manner for Copperbelt? Why has this happened to only twp provinces in Zambia? Western Province being the first one and it is still under policing like a place with no order. The truth be told there is something not right here.

    • This kind of desperation can lead to losing the only remaining vote for PF in people’s minds. I would be surprised If PF will pick any single vote in southern province with all what they have been subjected into. However, I see HH amassing more votes in his non strong holds because of his consistence on the message he is delivering to the people of Zambia. PF cant get it. The Mugabe way wont work in Zambia. This is not Zimbabwe, this is Zambia and they should go tell their mentor his selfishness will not be transferred to this peaceful country. Let them be careful because come August 11 many people will be hiding in holes in fear of the troubles they commited on innocent citizens.

    • This action will mark the beginning of a revolution in Zambia. Tongas are not intimidated by these stupid PF police.

      Lungu and his stooges should learn from the way people in Kitwe , Mongu and Kafue attacked the police to fight back at police brutality. If they dare intimidate the Tongas and restrict their freedom then Tongas will gang up and grab the guns from the police and fight back fiercely.

      Even History has it that Tongas are the most difficult people to displace. Thats why the Lozis and the Ngonis by passed them and left them where they are.

      More over Tongas have for long time not had a paramount chief because they dislike being dominated by an stupid individual like Lungu for the sake it. They always had chiefs who are dispensable and can be disciplined if they mistreat…

  3. Without fear or favor PF government has totally failed to control cadres – PF cadres or UPND cadres. It is the duty of the government to ensure people and property are protected from violence perpetrated by political cadres. Sending policemen to Southern Province only shows that PF government has failed because violence by political cadres is in all provinces. I am very disappointed by our vice president who said that cadres should esp. not attack government ministers and officials. In her thinking it is ok to attack HH, Sampa, GBM, or cadres to cadres or attack public who do not belong to their political party. This a kind of leadership that has made its cadres to be above the police and ordinary people. On the other hand it is very sad that the security could not read what was going to…

  4. Kwena Edgar Lungu nobuteko bwakwe matole sana. At Sinda, somebody’ s eye was pocked out by PF cadres in his presence. Nobody stood against the vice, not even s.t.u.p.i.d Edgar Lungu himself. The ugly incidence at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe airport and a lot of other serious incidences which have been done and caused by the PF cadres. Now see what they want to perceive the people of Southern Province ‘cos I know that, that is just a fabricated story. Kwena ukuli bakateka nebumba lyabakapokola, how in the frame of a rightful thinking mind can such an incident happen ? Kwena ba Lungu muleisebanya fye, this is a true reflection that you are a biased president with no good morals. Bakamba muli mbwa elyo mukopano bubi.

  5. its dimwits like @government that think the actions of police are above board who are defending every bad move the PF has been making. we do not defend violence by anyone at anytime but the behaviour of police when it comes to PF cadres has been pathetic to say the least. they only realize they are Zambia Police Force when its the opposition. ZP dont understand that by using force they are alienating the PF from the people. human beings respond to dialogue. look at apartheid where is it today? i get surprised when i see ignorance exhibited on social media. surely everyone must know that Tongas are not the only people living in SP we have all the tribes in Zambia but when it comes to voting you label all people Tonga for voting for UPND! you also forget that in the so called PF stronghold,…

  7. The country has crime spots that need to be taken care of, why send more Police Officers to an area that has been peaceful and will always be peaceful! Why? Is Kanganja normal, is Lungu Normal and is this Mwila misfit normal. These 3 CLOWNS know that they planted those people and stage managed the so called abductions. This playing politics has gone too far!!! Lungu is supposed to be working to resuscitate the Economy that he has in corroboration with his league of CRIMINALS have to its knees, but he finds time to be Politicking, SATA was right. Pure imbecile in power in our country.

  8. People with foul mouths; mouths that generate and disseminate hate and tribal speech are usually COWARDS. You are people who haven’t even handled a gun and used before, and yet in the forefront of smearing ethnocentric rend paste. Be very careful. You are used to getting money you haven’t worked because you are lazy. You cannot even run for 5 minutes consistently due to high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and gouty arthritis and a perpetrator of violence. Tame your laziness and hunger you good for nothing genocide-spirited myopic tribalists.

  9. Waste of time and money. . With the high poverty level that has hit the country, the police are too weak to fight. A unza student managed to grab a gun from a policeman without much effort. Better rescind the decision if you are itching for a fight.

  14. This is exactly what happened in Zimbabwe shortly before elections in 2008. A friend who worked for the CIO told us they would sort out MDC’s strong holds and for sure villages were burned, voters cards confiscated and local party officials beaten and arrested. All this was done by people who were recruited shortly before elections. They involved those recruited in the Zim Army, Zim Police, Wildlife and Nat’l parks and CIO guys.

    Zed also had recruitments in ZP, Army, ZNS and a few other security wings. These are the ones that will be unleashed on the Tongas.

Why is the government just targeting at killing the people of Southern Province? Cursed is PF forever, cursed is its leadership and as long as they remain in power without repentance, cursed shall be the country they lead! They thrive and survive on vilence and lies!

    • Do not make other people take responsibility for your bad upbringing and poor education. Your failure to analyze situations is so clear and that is why you never went far in school. Such comments only come from a few individuals who suffer from a superiority complex. And yet we know that the more intelligent ones from the same region have no issue with anyone from any region.
      My brother go back to school and you will find life more rewarding than exposing your small brain on issues that affect the whole nation. Supporting a wrong is a sign of a damaged brain. Go see a doctor.

    • @Pungwa Sompola Inkoko:
      Its unZambian to insult people like this. There are chiefs, headmen, old men and women, many Zambians from different provinces working in Southern province etc. What have they done to you to deserve these unpalatable insults? Its a shame we as a Zambian people have lost identity – lack of respect for the elderly, lack of morals and lack of self respect.
      I have been enjoying your contributions on this site, but on this one, you are completely off. Please refrain.

These people want to plunge the country into Chaos. To them Zambia up in flames is okay if they do not have state power.

  22. These characters are dull, now even the little remaining votes they had in the South will be gone. Reminds me of Rupiah and what happened in western province. Truly politicians don’t learn from history. PF must understand that nowhere in the world has force worked in convincing someone to vote for you. The Americans say win hearts and minds but even that has not helped Obama who is despised by half the country

      I agree with you “Ukusambilila kusuma”. Political Violence will not end because the Police has been beefed up in Southern Province, what about other provinces? We may conclude that this is a political decision to destabilise SP because it is a stronghold for UPND.
      Political Violence will only end by a Political decision made by ECL. Zambia has been peaceful from 1964 to 2011, what did the Leaders during that period do to maintain peace and order?

  26. I think we need the army out as well. We must stamp out this horrible political violence out of Zambia. These types are essentially being mobilised by desperate individuals with ulterior motives other than Governing for the benefit of all Zambians.

    This is positive. The police should never be attacked in their duty to protect us.
