      Police should be the last to complain when so many innocent Zambians have died at their hands. Do they think ordinary people will not retaliate if they shoot dead their relatives and friends?

      Money is the root cause of all evil. Most Zambian police officers are co?rupt. This is not far from a corrupt act. I SMELL A RAT.

    We must choose to be a country of laws and not guns. I find the proliferation of gun ownership in Zambia very worrying and scary. Plus this Jerabo thing which is also driving us towards the culture of South America where rebels are better equipped than law enforcements agents…. kaya mwandi

      There is no innocent police officer in Zambia anymore. Even the police spokesperson is a killer.

      What time did Sergeant Ludovic Bwalya leave the Police station to attend to church matters? Any witnesses? If the report is accurate, the body of the deceased was found at about 04 hrs the following day and still wearing his uniform. Was he carrying a bag when he left the station? Possibly for carrying civilian clothes and went to a drinking place. After the drink he put police uniform back on for safe travel back home. He may have been very aggressive and abusing towards others on the way home. Ethanol test known as BAC scale (Blood Alcohol Concentration) can be done on blood to confirm his state mind at the time of his death. If it were a case of forensic nature, urine could be obtained through catheterisation for drug test. This is just to help the police to understand the source of…

    1. If it happened around zero four ( 04hrs), 2. Deceased was still in uniform, 3. Deceased got permission to go to church but was still in uniform 4. Tell us where he stays so that we know whether the route he used was appropriate. Thats how one investigates / reasons, not what some “PHD?” magot wants to deduce.

    Good night U5, I am sure you will use the time when you cannot sleep to reflect deeply on your life manners and behaviour. Ask yourself whether a normal person can spend his time hallucinating in all the Courts that one can think of – high court before all the judges, magistrate court before all the magistrates, Concourt before a single judge and before the full bench. I hear now you will also dominate the local courts. Underfive you have a life before you including becoming President in 2026 when Lungu finally decides to go. This business of seeking jail is a miscalculation on your part, who do you think cares about you? You will rot in jail even your donkey followers will eventually forget if threy have not forgotten about you already.

    Zambia police have stopped investigating such issues and instead they are more into politics , have they concluded the investigation on the Zaf officer who was killed within there vicinity. It’s big no and that case is slowly dying a nature death. May your soul rest in peace officer. Whatever happened God knows.

    It is sad that a life has been lost and above all this nonsense it will be his family who will be hurt the most. Kanganja should focus on making sure Bwalya’s family are looked after and that they are paid their dues from the Police. Issuing threats will not help him nor Bwalya’s family. However, aside that, the Police should have only themselves to blame, they have lost all the credibility and no wonder they are having problems solving crimes because the public hate them now with a passion because of brutality. How many innocent Zambians have been killed and brutalized by the Police? And you expect the public to love your cops? I can guess that Bwalya is a victim of a hate crime by the public against the police. It is the police’s fault that they are now targets.
