Zambia Police Service Inspector General Kakoma Kanganja has participated in the first-ever High-Level United Nations Chiefs of Police Summit (UNCOPS) at UN Headquarters in New York.
The summit attracted Police Chiefs and other high-level officials from over 100 UN Member States.

The delegates acknowledged the central role of UN Police in helping to rebuild, reform and restructure criminal justice chains.

The Summit emphasised the need to strengthen partnerships between the UN Police, the African Union (AU), the European Union (EU), International Criminal Police Organisation (INTERPOL), the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the International Association of Chiefs of Police and other partner organisations would yield greater impact.

The delegates noted that transnational organized crime had emerged as a major threat to sustainable peace, and called for close cooperation among all stakeholders.

The Summit called for enhanced data management and analysis capacities on transnational threats for UN Police, including through better connections to existing tools and networks such as INTERPOL.

The Police Chiefs underscored the importance of clear and achievable mandates, as well as adequate financial and human resources and political support to enable the UN Police to carry out the tasks entrusted to them.

The Summit strongly encouraged Member States to include Police Advisors in their Permanent Missions to the UN in New York to increase advocacy for police-related issues within the UN. They noted that inclusion of Police Advisors would enhance communication with UN Secretariat on international police peacekeeping matters.

The delegates noted the Member States support to the UN Police’s efforts to continue the fight against sexual and gender-based violence.

They stressed the obligation of all UN Police officers to adhere to the Secretary-General’s Zero-Tolerance policy on Sexual exploitation and abuse, and committed to support UN disciplinary initiatives.

They highlighted the need for police officers to undergo UN-approved training on Sexual and Gender Based Violence training prior to their deployment.

The Summit also expressed concern about the underrepresentation of female officers in the UN Police, and called for the reinvigoration of nomination of female officers.

The Police Chiefs agreed that promotion, protection and respect of human rights form part of the core business of UN Police and urged all officers to act as role models to their host-state counterparts. Mr. Kanganja had interactions with his counterparts from different parts of the world. Zambia Police officer Leo Silowa accompanied Mr. Kakoma to UNCOPS.

  3. I hope this Zambian IG of police learnt some good manners from police chiefs of progressive nations. I hope he also told them that his police is fond of battering cadres and chocking university and college students with tear gas. Big fiola!

  4. The truth is that NO country on this planet wud want Zambia to become another Zimbabwe or Uganda.I speak to people from different countries,and most of them are watching Zambia step by step.Therefore,these UN people they already know the whole story of Lungu,you cant teach them anything about it.And am certain that they met Kanganja behind locked doors after everyone is gone and tutored him good policing.As they too,just like us Zambians want change of government. See how this elephant will tame his tongue from now onwards,and how he ll act non partisan.The UN has just given him balls to stand on now.

  5. Well, I am happy for Kakoma to have set his foot at the UN Headquarters, and I hope that he learnt a lot from the summit.. He should now open up and release my pension and other Police benefits he is unlawfully with holding, and he should stop blackmailing and fooling himself that I was AWOL when I was diligently serving the UN.
    The summit stressed on Police Officers being trained in Gender mainstreaming, zero tolerance of sexual exploitation and abuseand including of a lot of women in these peace keeping assignments, which I strongly recommend and I did give him Kakoma a brochure for my private firm, for me to be offering training workshops to Police Officers, before they deploy to UN peace keeping missions, as a lot used to embarrass me with their attitude at the UN missions and some…
