Southern Province Police Commissioner Bonny Kapeso has warned that police will deal ruthlessly with anyone attempting to cause confusion in the province on Tuesday, 18th April 2017.

Mr Kapeso has since directed all police officers in the province to be in full riot attire and be ready to confront any form of violence in their districts.

In a statement, Mr Kapeso said, “this announcement serves to confirm that tomorrow, Tuesday 18th April, 2017, all police officers, in southern province, are hereby directed to be in full riot attire and be ready to confront and neutralize any form of violence in their districts without fail.”

“To all members of public who desire to live in peace, am asking them to stay away from violence if they value their lives. tomorrow is seen as a litmus test for the police in Southern Province. prevention is better than cure, lest I am blamed that I did not forewarn my brothers and sisters in the province,” Mr Kapeso warned.

Incarcerated UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and five supporters are expected to be presented before court on Tuesday to answer criminal charges including that of treason.

      Please do not riot. There are better ways of showing our displeasure.

      What about a STAY-AWAY from work?

      This Friday let everyone that disagrees with Lungus nonsense stay away from work. Lets shut Zambia down for one day to show our disapproval. No teargas, no riots! Just peaceful protest!

      Try it. It works!

      What police officers must know is that some of the people in your uniforms are not true Zambian police officers but hired from other countries like Uganda, Burundi, Rwanda, North Sudan, Morocco and Somali. Please I urge the police officers to be vigilant or else you will be surprised to see the same people shooting live bullets on your own people or even shoot at you if not careful.

      @1 I THINK THAT’S WHAT, Southern Province Police Commissioner Bonny Kapeso, SAID THAT, IF YOU DON’T VALUE YOUR LIFE PARTICIPATE OR STAY NEAR VIOLENCE. YOU SOUND LIKE YOU DON’T VALUE YOUR LIFE SO GO NEAR WHERE VIOLENCE WILL BE HAPPENING IN SOUTHERN PROVINCE WESTERN AND NORTH WESTERN PROVINCES. DON’T GO TO NORTHERN AND OTHER PROVINCES WHERE THEY VALUE THEIR LIVES IF YOU DON’T WANT TO LIVE IN PIECE OR NOT LIVE AT ALL..

      the guy who threw a shoe at Bush was sentenced to three years in prison for assaulting a foreign head of state. that was a clear intent by al zaidi to hurt a sitting president, but no treason charges were brought up against him.

      It took 1 street fruit seller to change the political landscape in North Africa, generals, priests, academicians, policemen, students, women, men, children were all afraid, everyone thought they were docile until 1 match brought down the entire forest, this one fruit seller said enough, Gaddafi, hosni Mubarak, Tunisian former president, are no more.

      @ Political Flatulence (PF),
      Very true a fruit seller indeed but this fruit seller is the type you can not make comparisons with the likes in Zambia as this fruit seller in North Africa could be one of the many educated ones making a living selling fruit for lack of jobs. Those who have visited North African countries will attest to the high number of college graduates trying to make a living every which way, easy ones to encounter are mostly taxi drivers thus due to being well informed they can not be as docile as their Zambian counterparts in same trades. In Zambia the fruit seller has serious challenges with the basic being denial of access to information!

    Riots are illegal and a criminal act, but Mr Benny Kapeso’s seemingly threat to life statement is unacceptable. protests should not be confused with riots. The following statement by Mr Kapeso may be interpreted to mean any one who riots deserves to killed by whosoever is charged with laws enforcement and may lead to some officers thinking they have been given a right to kill “To all members of public who desire to live in peace, am asking them to stay away from violence if they value their lives.” our view is that if indeed there are people planning to riot or cause violence they should be dealt with according to the law without any extra actions. And to our fellow Zambians wherever you may be violence does not pay, and therefore don’t be violent in whatever situation. To those…

    Using social media to insult the Republican President is very bad and completely unacceptable. discuss issues, don’t insult. If you have nothing to say just keep quiet. Many well meaning people are put off by people who don’t discuss rationally.

    Breaking News! Geoffrey Mwamba Bwalya popularly known as GBM has vowed to take over the UPND Presidency when HH is convicted as HH will surely be found with a case to answer and consequently be Convicted. You guys want to take to the Streets when HH will never even look after your Children if you were die during Riots.

      ba reality is ill informed and miseducated.its not about HH,its about the value of human life and the rights therein enshrined. if we all did things because someone would look after our kids,why did mandela spend all those years in prison missing out on the lives of his children,did the south african people father his children in his absence.Kaunda,sacrificed for the independence of zambia,did he say ati after all these zambians wont look after my kids should i be killed,let me just stop.kwame nkhrumah was asked, how he felt after ghanas independence,and he said.Ghana is not free until all africa is free.why did he care about other countries when his was independent?this quality of great humanist action is lacking in you sir.Anyway,u docile,maybe its not your fault

    The police in any country are supposed to protect citizens and NOT used to intimidate or slaughter anyone expressing a grievance. There is nothing wrong in people showing solidarity to a just course through peaceful demonstrations. If the police lose their moral campass and professionalism due to misguided royalties, the international community is more than able and ready to intervene. We are a global village and NOT an island.

HOWEVER, AS AT NOW HE MUST BE PUT AWAY FROM VULNERABLE CITIZENS OR ELSE HH WILL INFLICT DANGER ON THEM. SO IN THE MEANTIME LET HIM BE IN A 5STAR HOTEL AND RELAX.

    NEZ you make me wana puke, you are disgusting rat, i wish you could disappear.
    Mr Kapeso, while i understand your concern and your duty to protect Zambians, i would like to remind you that those that are unhappy and wish to protest are also Zambians that needs your protection, wish you are mandated to, your warning is rather a threat to the lives of our Zambian brothers, they may be disgruntled by the arrest of the law breaker(hh) but as Zambians they still need your protection, please Mr Kepeso next time you want to warn citizens do so without threats, accidents happen and in this case if it happened it would be assumed it was planned(your plan) when not.

Let them be swallowed like those enemies who persecuted the children of Israel were swallowed in the Red Sea. Let all evil PF cadres be swallowed in Jesus name. It is done Amen.

    Mr. President i think you should PARDON Mr. HH. Not so much for him but for YOUR SELF,YOU ALREADY ARE THE HEAD OF STATE, and a bigger person, Mr. HH is not. Yes he needs to give you respect. But am sure, he has done a lot of PONDERING IN THAT JAIL. If i was in your shoes, i would PARDON Mr.H H AND ALSO GIVE HIM A PUBLIC WARNING THAT IF HE ATTEMPTS TO CONDUCT HIM SELF IN SUCH A MANNER NEXT TIME. THAT WILL BE THE END FOR HIM AND HIS POLITICAL CAREER.
