A video showing an unidentified drunk uniformed Zambia police service officer has gone viral courtesy of citizen journalism, reports pan african radio Journalist Hermit Hachilonde.

In the 37 minute armature video clip, a police officer is seen staggering and moving aimlessly to the dismay and chagrin of onlookers.

According to the chants by the onlookers, the intoxicated law enforcer is alleged to have had a fecal incident and a loose bladder as can be seen from behind the pair of trousers which partially wet.It is clear the drunken officer was on duty because of the uniform was clad in.

Reacting to the incident, Inspector General of Police (IG) Kakoma Kanganja said that he is disappointed with conduct of the officer in the video circulating on social media.

Mr Kanganja said that the said officer is a disgrace to the noble profession and the law enforcement agency.

Mr Kanganja however assured that the police high command will take appropriate punitive action against the erring drunken officer once he is positively identified.

“He will be identified and dealt with accordingly” said kanganja

Mr. Kanganja noted that it was embarrassing for police officers to engage in debasing activities that bring the integrity of the police service into public ridicule.

The police chief stated that as custodians of law and order, police officer must endeavor to be exemplary as their discharge their duty and off duty.

Dr Kanganja has also thanked concerned members of the general public for exposing the unprofessional and unethical conduct of the officer.

“It will be double punishment! Action will be taken without delay and thanks for the support” kanganja said

A journalist only identified as Steven Mvula is believed to be behind the posting of the video on the Zambia police social media platform on whatsapp and the entire social media is now awash with the same story.

  1. This police officer is just emulating the commander in chief of the armed forces and who happens to be head of state.

    • Shows how useless Zambia has become, with no code of conduct. what do you expect if people from Police officers are so frustrated. they will behave in this matter. Don’t just punish but find a solution to such problems. IG is dull not even a leader as he thinks only punishment.

    • You throw rubbish anywhere and anyhow and you blame your government for not cleaning up after your own mess. Next you will be blaming PF for not coming to clean your toilet in your own house. Be responsible for your actions for once.

  4. @william Banda (UPND Thung)’ you are the thug who throws rubbish & want others to clean your toilet. If I was that type, I wouldn’t show you the dirty that your PF has created in Lusaka and Zambia. No responsible government can allow people on the streets everywhere. At least RB who has gone to bed with PF tried to clean up a little bit although the PF controlled councils did let him down. Grow up man. Zambia can be better than the mess created by PF and not everyone criticising vision less Changwa and PF is UPND.

Kangaja please check yourself and put your house in order sir.

    • I totally agree. We have to acknowledge that the Police Force only attracts the psychopaths in our society, those who want to abuse power to disadvantage, harass and even humiliate citizens. Kanganja should punish himself first before falling heavily on the drunk officer.

  9. That guy s crime is to mess his pants and stagger around; but that is because the cops feel humiliated by cadres being above them; they are human too. I would not be surprised if that is not an unruly cadre in police uniform; Every action has a reaction now poor Z P is in disgrace because some one allowed cadres to dress in police uniforms.

  10. “Dr Kanganja has also thanked concerned members of the general public for exposing the unprofessional and unethical conduct of the officer”
    “Dr Kanganja”?
    When was Mr Kakoma Kanganja awarded a honorary doctorate? Guess it’s a mix up of names, author has former secretary of cabinet late Joshua Kanganja (Dr) in his/her mind.

  11. @James, Kanganja is a disgrace because he like Limbogani and the likes of Katanga and Simbotwe have turned ZP into PF police cadre wing of working against the opposition and that is why we are using his words to tell him that he too is a digrace

  12. Thanks to technology of these days. I happened to be in Mbala, Zambia about 6 years ago. I went to buy a soft drink at one of the take away shops close to a bottle store, I was amazed to see a police officer, during lunch time helping himself to a few bottles of castle beer. I was shocked because, all my life in Zambia, I had never seen such daring moment of a Govt law enforcement official (Police) SITING IN A BOTTLE STORE WITH ALL THE POLICE LIGALIA. I had no camera no phone on me and could not dare report the incidence at the police station, just in case it had become the norm in Zambia. The police post is just less that 300 m away from the place I found this police officer drinking in full police uniform gear. The recent incidence is a good example of how technology will help us solve…

  13. SUCH SCENES TELL YOU WHY POLICE AT ROAD BLOCKS SHOULD NOT BE THE COLLECTORS OF MONEY FROM ROAD TRAFFIC OFFENDERS. HE GOT DRUNK WITH OFFENDER MONEY OR BRIBERY MONEY FROM THE DRIVERS. IT IS VERY COMMON IN ZAMBIA FOR POLICE TO JUST CORRUPTLY GET MONEY FROM OFFENDER OR INNOCENT DRIVERS BY STICKING A SILLY OFFENSE ON THEM. CAN THESE CHAPS IN THE NAME OF POLICEMEN EVEN BE CAPABLE OF ARRESTING UPND THUGS?

  14. Police officers are human and err from time to time. In the USA some kill black men routinely.

    The worrying thing here is UPND going to battle with our Police, targeting them, picking out isolated incidents to mock authority. Once this type of behaviour starts in the citizenry, then the next step is Anarchy. Kanganja might want to understand the deeper meaning to this incident instead of giving stock announcements on punishing officers for delight of mockery.

  15. The drunken police officer is indicative of what Zambian society has come to. Indiscipline is rampant in the forces especially the police force. This arm of law enforcement is a total disgrace. Starting form the hideous uniform. We need a smart uniform for our police men and women. Some security guards look smarter. Strict uniform regulations for women too. Stop wearing those pop socks from the 1980s that go up to your knees. Hair extensions and long plaits should be restricted. They make the policewomen look messy! Bleached skins, for goodness sake. The IG should seriously take up this issue because the police force think they can get away with any sort of behaviour. We have lost direction in this country.

  16. @professional, restricting bleached skins should be to all women. These women think that no one will notice them. But we do notice and they look awful like the way the national netball team women who have bleached looked awful in Sydney last year. Restricting it will be good for the nation because in years to come there will skin cancers and other cancers associated with bleached skins which will be costly to the tax payers.
