Zambia Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo says the police service has noticed a rise in cybercrimes in the country due to social media.
Speaking in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka yesterday, Ms. Katongo stated that the internet is an ever growing platform hence causing a rise in the cases of cyber-crime.
“ The police service is working hard this year towards punishing any individual caught engaging in such activities, “Ms. Katongo said.
Ms. Katongo explained that many people have become victims of cyber-crime because many do not take time in reporting such cases to the police.
She urged every individual engaged in committing the crime to withdraw before they face the law and victims of such crimes to report the cases to the nearest police station.
