Police Public Relations officer Esther Mwaata Katongo has said the police service is not in any way shielding President Edgar Lungu’s Political advisor Kaizer Zulu in the alleged assault case purported to have happened during the Total Under 20 final match at Lusaka heroes’ stadium.

The Pan African Radio Journalist Hermit Hachilonde reports that, Ms. Katongo said the Police immediately after receiving the report from the complainant a medical report form was issued to the complainant and a docket regarding the case was opened.

The Police Spokesperson has since dismissed insinuations by some stakeholders on social media that the case has been closed, affirming that the case is currently under study.

She has however enlightened that the police service have procedures to follow when dealing with cases as opposed to acting on impulse.

Ms. Katongo added that an allegation by some individuals that the police service in Zambia is selective in the application of the law was misplaced.

“We want to put it clear that the police are not in any way shielding Kaizer Zulu in the alleged assault case purported to have happened at Lusaka heroes’ stadium” Ms. Katongo said.

Stakeholders have continued to lambaste President Lungu’s Special Advisor for Politics for physically abusing a female police officer during the award presentation at Heroes Stadium after Zambia’s victory over Senegal on Sunday.

Among the stakeholders to have condemned Mr Zulu’s action are the opposition APC President, Human Rights Commission Chairperson and the country’s umbrella body for NGOs the NGOCC.

APC President Nason Msoni related the incident to what he termed as weakness by the Republican President Edgar Lungu has continued to ignore ailing subordinates.

Mr Msoni noted that stakeholders have repeatedly warned president Lungu but that the president seems to have been held captive by his subordinates who continue to do whatever they feel like without facing any consequences as if they have something on him that he does not want the nation to know.

He said it has become apparent to the nation that an indiscipline leadership can never deliver and that the President should for once stand up and fix the mess his officials are putting the country in.

He said the actions of some of the people his has appointed does not represent the best interest of any individual in the seat of power.

He further noted that the President is frozen when it comes to mating out punishment which he said was worrying as it had negative repercussion on the wellbeing of citizens in the country.

Meanwhile the Human Rights Commission (HRC) says it is deeply disturbed at the alleged physical and indecent harassment of a female police officer by a senior government official during the Under 20 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament at Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.

In a statement issued to the media HCR Chairperson Mudford Mwandenga said the commission was disappointed that a female officer was abused just a week after commemorating International Women’s Day.

Mr Mwandenga who was commenting on the reported victimization of a female police officer by Kaiza Zulu the Political Advisor to the President said his organization was concerned that 4 days after the reported violation of human rights by a senior government official no action has been taken against the sad officer.

“The Commission is aware of many cases where individuals have been arrested, detained and charged with an offence of obstructing the Police from executing their duties. The police officer was executing her official duty of enforcing law and order when she was not only obstructed, but also physically and indecently manhandled. It is shocking that her case seems to be treated differently.

“The HRC is raising this concern because there were a number of police officers within the vicinity of the alleged scene of crime, and the case was officially reported at Matero Police Station, but regrettably, no concrete steps seem to have so far been undertaken to ensure that justice is done. Such lack of action against perpetrators of human rights and crimes only serve to confirm allegations and fears of selective and discriminatory application of the law, to the detriment of respect for human rights,” he said.

He further said the lack of action by institutions mandated to curtail the abuse of human rights in the country only serve to confirm allegations and fears of selective and discriminatory application of the law, to the detriment of respect for human rights.

  1. Kaizer Zulu knows what he does to most PSs in the civil service…..Many senior civil servants are threatened by KZ… It is sad that we have such characters at state house…. He know what he is doing with Kennedy Kamba.
    KZ always moves with stout bodyguards and buys alcohol like a party man not benefiting a civil servant. His language is crude…..
    Frankly, the President must act….. I don’t suppose HH or Nawaki but I need the office of the President to highly respected by The President himself and his juniors….

  3. KZ is stronger than EL and above the Zed law. Katongo the ZP knows that and just hiding in her words. if that assault was done by opposition, today the man could have been in cells. Zambians know and see what is happening. you can get away with it from the zed authorities but not from God. Every dog has its day, the saying goes. Kaunda was very powerful not only in zed but across borders, but one shortest Ruler ever lived in zed neutralized him and put him in prison. Time will tell, you think you living in heaven but living in hell

  6. Good, arrest Kaizer please. However my issue Madam Katongo is that Kitwe traffic police have again mounted their normal illegal roadblock at st Johns conivent school just now at 15 45, they normally hide there. Please, please Hon Kampyongo was very clear when he said motorists should not be inconvinenced in any way. These lazy Police officers here in Kitwe are a real night mare. Why don’t you transfer ALL of them to far flung areas please. We need our peace, and you know these road blocks are just money making ventures for their weekends

  7. When koffi olomide beat up one of his dancing Queens, we all saw how the people of Congo even though they are perpetually at war and in a disfunction state, rose up and collective showed their disgust for the once might koffi, even show society and kenya cancelled his concerts, but here in Zambia even those who claim to GBV ambassadors are silent just because he is one of them.

  9. The silence of the usual resident LT kaponya PF bloggers is very loud……we keep telling you lungu is a drunkard who oversees corruption and thuggery on a grand scale. When he is in a tight corner you see him calling for national prayers and going to church…

    For his award winning humble performances in front of gulible church goers lungu has surely been black listed in the book above.

  13. No worries. We will forward these articles to the UN ourselves if we have to. The whole world has to see weak Lungu for who he is. He is to chicken to be president. A man who cannot lead but is lead like a dog.
