Zambia Police Service Inspector General Kakoma Kanganja

The Press Association of Zambia (PAZA) has called on Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja to ensure that his officers stop tempering with media freedoms.

This comes after two journalists in Lusaka where harassed by a suspected statehouse police officer identified as Sipalo Mbewe.

PAZA President Andrew Sakala has told q news that yesterday’s incident should be a litmus taste to ascertain whether any punitive measures will be taken against the officer who attacked the two journalists while on duty.

He says this is because journalists in the country have in the recent past been attacked, while police has done nothing about it.

He is of the view that this is a clear indication of how media freedoms are injured in the country.

And Mr. Sakala has urged journalists in the country to take legal action against police officers arrest them, and ensure that such cases don’t die a natural death.

      React to insolence because you are being questioned why you are abusing your office?Today the 1diots are living in another world.We dont expect anything to happen here.The top has no standards,Kaiser literally embarrassed the president by acting truant in his presence at the stadium,that was an indication that either the president is weak or he tolerates indiscipline.So we dont expect anything to happen.If we want to see the professionalism we were used we have to wait for change.

  3. Heads must roll like what happened to that man who dumped his and chased from Washington DC. We are not in state of emergency situation to give cops sweeping powers to do whatever hey deem right in their own judgement. These same journalist they are harassing today, will be needed when it would matter most in future. We expect an officer to be firm and fair in their dealings with members of the public and not to act as though we being governed by a military junta or dictatorship. This food for deputy IG (Administration) we need disciplined and professional peoples’ police service who execute their duties with pride and not pompus and indisciplined ones.
