The Christian Democratic Party (CDP) has urged the Zambia Police Service to be firm on people that are abrogating the law.

Party President Dan Pule said that people have continued inciting students and the public because the Police service has not sent a strong signal to them that lawlessness will not be allowed.

Bishop Pule said that he expected the police to be on high alert and prevent crimes such as student riots even before they happen, adding that the rate at which some citizens are issuing false statements is alarming and that something needs to be done about it. Bishop Pule said Zambia is a peaceful country and those who want to promote trouble should not be caged.

And a Kabwe based clergy man has urged Christians to disregard politicians who are propagating hatred against foreign nationals. Covenant of Grace Bishop Simon Banda said that it is unchristian to incite people to rise against others.

Bishop Banda told ZNBC news that if a Chinese breaks the law the due process should be allowed to take its course as opposed to some political leaders inciting Zambians to rise against them.

He challenged those condemning the Chinese to publicly state if they will not work with China if at all they ever form government.

Bishop Banda said Christians are not expected to follow political leaders that want to make the country ungovernable using violence.

However, opposition All People’s Congress party president Nasson Msoni has castigated the Zambia Police for their swift response when dealing with statements from opposition political party leaders when they don’t exhibit the same levels of energy when dealing with crimes in communities.

Msoni says the Police have no business policing political statements as their job is in communities were real crimes are committed everyday.

He explained that it has become useless to call the police when under attack but that the police will react with lightening speed to deal with opposition leaders.

“There are so many violent crimes happening in our communities every day requiring police intervention and yet they don’t even bother to respond to the calls.

“Police are nowhere to be seen in many circumstances requiring their prompt action . Now it’s even worse and useless and a waste of time to call for help from Police at night when you are under attack from Criminals. Most likely they will not even turn up giving the usual silly excuses of no transport.

“In all this apparent failing surprisingly Police is responding at lightning speed to the summoning of Opposition leaders over harmless political statements. We think police have no business policing political statements made by political leaders. It is certainly bad policing antics to be snooping on Opposition leader’s statements with a view to summoning them for further clarity and interpretation,” he said.

Msoni has since called for reorientation for the Police to understand their role in a democracy.

“The need for Police orientation is imperative and a necessary process for our police officers to undergo in realising that in a democracy citizens and political activists are entitled to issue political statements that do not please the government of the day. As citizens and political leaders we demand professionalism in our police services. We reject a police service that operates in a cadre like fashion,” he said.

    • A f00l at 40 is a f00l forever.
      Danny Pule’s politics of the belly irritates me. I’m glad Lungu has refused to give him any ministerial position.

      This man left his old white wife after being together for over 30 years & married a 19 year old small girl. He divorced her after 2 months & went for another small choir girl.

      What a shameless clown. hee-hee-hee.

  3. Hakainde’s UPND is not inspiring any more because their leader had lost it. Zambians love their hard earned peace, you cannot use les and misinformation to win their support.

  4. Ati Christian Democratic Party. These are Tuntemba Parties created by PF and the likes of Kudos and Nubian Princess to hoodwink the poor Zambian people.

    You can tell from the language they speak. It does not match the party’s name. They come with lamb- like horns but speak as a dragon. Revelation 13 v 11.

    There are serious national matters that can do without fake news getting in the way.

  7. Pastor Hehehehe … is really working hard – chewing all his followers and PF bl00d money.
    He is on another assignment to sing the chorus of incitement of the PF police. Professional Police Officers don’t carry out instructions from cadres!

  8. So what are you suggesting Bishop Pule? A few slaps on the face of Trib.al Hacks on before they lock him up at Kamfinsa? Is that strong enough signal?
    I think even the diplomatic community are fed up with this trib.al child, what do you think upnd?
    Baroness Patricia Scotland has just sent me a message that this time she will not make the mistake of intervening to save this guy.
    I believe that anythibg is better than triba.l Hacks.

  12. The Police is supposed to serve all Citizens devoid of any political Inclinations. The Problem now obtaining in our country is that all governance institutions have collapsed, thanks to the PF Mismanagement. In this instance a respectable Police Inspector General is supposed to Warn characters like Danny Pule to forthwith Stop meddling in Police Affairs. A stern warning to the Pastor would indeed sent a clear message to those who love to meddle and pressure Governance institutions such as the Police , Judiciary .

  14. State lawlessness is worrisome and it is eroding confidence in the Police, as some police officers have abrogated the law with impunity. In this country where lawyers and members of the judiciary manifestly abrogated the law to steal from a UN Diplomat and enjoyed discounts they did not earn and are not qualified to., in violation of her convention rights, international treaties and the UN Charter. They then go around shopping for loop holes to legitimize their banditry. They have turned the Police. Legal and justice mechanisms into money laundering cartails. Where is the rule of law in such impunity???. Then even Policemento aided them in stealing whatever they were amused with. When we were being attacked by the bandits and called the Police. C5. We were only dissapointed to be told…
