The Zambia Police Service has confirmed a video circulating on social media of a man wearing a police uniform suspected to be an imposter.

Police Deputy Spokesman Rae Hamoonga said the man has been identified as Telvin Matandala aged 27 years and unemployed of Chisamba.
Mr Hamoonga said preliminary investigations have revealed that the said Kelvin Matandala, on 4th July, 2016 stole the Police uniform from his guardian who is a Police Officer at Chisamba Police Station.

Mr Hamoonga said the suspect is currently detained in police and will appear in court soon after being charged for Theft and Impersonating a Public Officer.

“We would like to dispel rumours being circulated on social media depicting a male person in police uniform and stating that he is a political cadre. Contrary to these assertions being circulated they facts of the matter are that on 6th July,2016 at around 18:00hrs the same man was apprehended by members of the public at COMESA market area where he was seen drinking alcohol whilst in uniform and was taken to Lusaka Central Police Station,” Mr Hamoonga said.

  1. You are feeding the nation with lies. Cadres have been given uniforms and that one is one of them. Wait until another one is caught soon again and what will be your response.

    • @1 luampa,There are may be PF cadres in the ZP but they could have been recruited and taken through formal training at Lilayi and issued with service numbers as a proper cover up.That is very possible. But infusing untrained cadres into ZP could have resulted in immediate whistle blowing with some names even being cited. It could not have taken long! The arrested guy may be a cadre of a political party in his private capacity but he is also mere common criminal.

    • Police and Poor finishers (pf) are both lying. Only good at reducing the votes for the oposition through killing using tax payers money which paid for the bullets.

  5. @Paul a retarded website with nothing relevant and the only star is HH? Who even made that silly site? They should find something better to do the job. Seems like a 7 year old created it. Whomever did it forgot the main components such as the economy, rural news, politics, do we have a headlines section or general section? They seriously need to find someone to spice it up.

  6. Good evening selfsame lazybu3ms.It is cool in Wisconsin. When I received the selfsame video on whatssaup from one of my lazy bu3m friends, first thing that came to my mind was the ignorance of both the vigilante/police who arrested the imposter cadre and the selfsame imposter cadre about the so called bill of rights.The vigilante/police were abusing their position by punishing that cadre.It is apparent that the selfsame bill of rights can never work in the shadow of Zambia.The selfsame lazy bu3ms have never read the bill of rights and they do not care.Shame for my country.#In the shadow of Zambia
    I thank you

  8. The Cadre in Police uniform that shot a small unarmed girl in the head needs to be arrested as well. Not even Mailoni Brothers were shot in the head.

  9. Mapenzi rest in peace sister,the only questions is about the child you’ve left behind ‘s welfare.People without grade twelve certificate failed to interpret the cancellation of a permit there-by costing us the people of chawama a young life.How can someone with impunity disregard the law day right.The ***** who gathered the Youths must be investigated and charged accordingly as well. That’s why we need educated people in place.
