    • Probably Hakainde should also slow down on his clowning of “dodging live bullets from ZP for eight solid hours”. That way the police would concentrate on lawlessness in our communities.


  1. Why is it that the only daytime patrols we have are traffic patrols. While traffic stops are going on, petty crimes and lawlessness go on with no control in many of our towns. Todays zambia police officer seems to be very uneasy walking through our communities. Everywhere they seem to go they carry around ak47 rifles and want to show aggression. That aggression is what has produced todays criminals. I think zambia police ought to change their policing tactics and become friends of citizens once again.
