The Zambia Police Service has warned of stern warn action against people that illegally wear police regalia.
Police say doing so is disregarding the State Security Act CAP 111 Section 6 (1)(A) of the Laws of Zambia.
The State Security Act CAP 111 Section 6 (1)(A) forbids people without lawful authority from possessing, importing or manufacturing any uniform of the Defence Force or the Police Service or any other official uniform of the Republic or any dress closely resembling the same as likely to deceive or falsely represent himself to be a person who has been entitled to wear any such uniform or shall be guilty of an offence and liable of conviction to imprisonment for a term of not less than 15 years.
Deputy Inspector General of Police Malcom Mulenga said the Zambia Police Service is dismayed with the manner in which members of the public have continued to abuse replica military regalia.
Mr. Mulenga has also warned second hand clothes dealers and traders who are in the habit of selling the replica military attire to desist from doing so as they will face the full wrath of the Law.
He said in a statement issued to the media in Lusaka that the Zambia Police Service in conjunction with other security wings shall enforce the law to the latter.
