Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja has implored Police officers to be disciplined and observe human rights when carrying out their duties.

Speaking when he addressed officers in Chinsali district of Muchinga Province at the council chamber yesterday, Mr. Kanganja said adherence to discipline and codes of ethics form the backbone of the Police service and should not be compromised adding that officers should always check their conduct where they see deficiencies.

Mr. Kanganja charged that officers should be role models to members of the public by raising their levels of discipline as this year’s Police theme advocates.

The Inspector General of Police further urged the men and women in uniform to also desist from all forms of corrupt practices as well as to avoid their participation in partisan politics.

He has however, commended the officers in Muchinga Divison for their hardwork and commitment to duty.

He lamented that officers have remained committed to serving the nation despite working under difficult conditions.

He further disclosed to the officers that Government through the Ministry of Home Affairs is working tirelessly to improve the conditions of service for the officers.

And Speaking when the Inspector General General paid a courtesy call on him at his office, Muchinga Province Permanent Secretary Jobbicks Kalumba expressed disappointment with the pace of the new Police Headquarters construction works.

Dr. Kalumba lamented that the contractor in charge of the project has been too reluctant despite funds to complete the ultra-modern facility being released.

The Permanent Secretary has however, echoed a warning to the contractor to get back on site and finish the remaining works or risk having their contract terminated.

Dr. Kalumba further commended Government for considering the Police service in the construction of new Police infrastructure in Muchinga Province.

Dr. Kalumba who also accompanied the Inspector General when he toured the new Police Headquarters under construction in Chinsali, urged police officers to continue serving the public diligently.

Mr. Kanganja is on a 3 day working visit to inspect and interact with officers as well as to check on the progress of infrastructure construction projects in Muchinga province.

  1. Says Chinganja, a non professional P. F Hound, who is told swaaa, does not ask why, & attacks the opposition, & or anyone challenging Boss Chakolwa with Rabid vigor.
    Did you grant Jerabos
    permission to make noise when Chakolwa Chagwa gave them Black Mountain, that he Chagwa does NOT even own??

  2. Good idea, indeed the police should be role models of corruption, i.e. teaching everyone how to be corrupt and get away with it.

  3. There are some role Models in the Police. There are some few good models like the humble overall boss i had an encounter with recently at Kabwata Police. You might even think he is not a police officer.However most of his subordinates are overzealous and corrupt. I Hope Kanganja recognizes such Role Models and help them continue to show some little positive side of the police service.

  4. Are there people out there who are looking for role models within the police service? I am sorry they won’t find any. The last role models in the police service were Brenda Muntemba and DR Malama. I don’t know if Brenda Muntemba still works there but Dr. Malama was removed by a president who wanted a bootlicker at the helm of the police service. Dr. malama was appointed by a man most of us trusted as president of Zambia levy P Mwanawasa. Kanganja is a foolish and dull person. I would like to see Kanganja’s academic record from primary school up to grade 12. He strikes me as a man with a low IQ and lacks basic cognitive abilities depending mostly on instructions from people like Kaizer.
