    • If only our men and women in uniform were left to do their work professionally, Zambia would not need mocking prayers for peace.

  1. Good job Police but please don’t reveal too much of how you apprehend such criminals because would be criminals are listening!!!

  2. Excellent work here. Please keep it up. I wish you could continue working like this. I know that some of you are sincere although most of you are not. Did work hard because he was an Egyptian and not Zambian?

    • @3 jason Nyirenda, sometimes they can do good work.But in some of these cases where foreigners who may have more money and logistics to put at their disposal the police can really work hard to earn their reward. The same way when a foreigner is involved in crimes and puts at their disposal some resources- he can hardly be apprehended and sometimes can even be assisted to skip the country!But for now we can only say thanx for this job!

  3. Was this Egyptian one of those who sell household goods from house to house? Those are irritating, I have banned my family not to have anything to do with them.
