Ms Kasoma was on the evening of Wednesday allegedly assaulted by three Police Officers in Lusaka’s Kamwala area.
Ms Kasoma is among the many women who have fallen victim to police brutality in 2016.
ZNWL National Board Chairperson Beauty Katebe said in a statement today that it was unacceptable that three male armed police officers could resort to beating and stripping naked one woman as the only way of dealing with whatever situation may have been threatening peace at the time.
He said there was little or no information in the public domain on punitive action, legally or otherwise taken against the erring officers.
“The lack of or unknown action on previous cases involving erring police officers has given way to impunity among some indisciplined police officers who feel that they can inflict harm on innocent citizens without any consequences,”Ms Katebe said.
She implored the police command through the Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja to put an end to police brutality by acting decisively on erring officers.
He said the continued reports of police brutality were denting the image of the service and will further reduce the confidence that the public has in the institution.
“We are aware that the police service has different levels of engagement in the maintenance of law and order and force is the last resort, we therefore expect the police officers to exhaust all the other avenues before resorting to inflicting bodily harm on citizens,”Ms Katebe said.
