Minister of Local Government and House,Stephen Kampyongo
Government has unearthed a scam in which some police officers are allegedly conniving with agriculture cooperatives officials to steal subsidised farm inputs.

Minister of Home affairs Steven Kampyongo disclosed this in an interview with ZNBC News in Lusaka.

Mr Kampyongo has since directed police commissioners in the ten provinces to intervene and bring culprits to book.

The Minister said he has received disturbing reports from Shiwangandu and Chinsali districts where some police officers and Cooperative officials have been reported to the police over the illegal activities.

Mr. Kampyongo says the Commissioners of Police must work hand in hand with all district Commissioners to curb the scam.

The Minister has described the theft of farm inputs as economic sabotage.

Meanwhile, Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo’s wife Wanziya has commended the Zambia Police Nkwazi Women’s Club for empowering youths with skills.

Mrs. Kampyongo says training in various skills such as Auto-mechanics will help create self employment among youths in the country.

She says youths should not wait for Government to create jobs for them but be self sustaining through skills.

Mrs. Kampyongo was speaking during the graduation ceremony of vulnerable women and youths trained by the Zambia Police Nkwazi Women’s group in Lusaka this morning.

Nkwazi Women’s Matron, Rosemary Kangaja has urged the 58 graduates to use their skills to contribute to the economic development of the country.

  3. It should have read ” 100 police officers arrested for …” PF is good at giving false alarm. They are very good at talking. No action. Eg President Lungu say his ministers are corrupt, has he acted? Inonge says police were attacked by Konboni radio owner, what happened?

  4. Set a thief to catch a thief. This guy knows exactly what he used to do (perhaps still does it). What is of concern is whether he will actually go beyond this lip service.

  5. Now what is this non.sense of wives venturing into their husbands’ jurisdictions? As if having Social Welfare shifted to the First Lady’s Office, now we will have ministerial wives wielding oversight over their husbands’ job functions. @ndobo, I feel your disgust!

  6. Politics aside especially if you’re not involved in farming. Go to Kalulushi market and you’ll find clearly market D Compound “Not for Sale ” being sold and police officers are just watching. Government is giving us a “pack ” 400kwacha(2 D, 2 Uriah, and one seed) which these guys are selling at more than 200 kwacha per bag of fertilizer and 300kwacha for seed. Why can’t the police arrest anyone found selling these items?
