The Zambia Police Service on the Copperbelt has engaged Lusaka Office to help with the re-arresting of Chifubu Member of Parliament Frank Ng’ambi for allegedly beating his wife.

Copperbelt Police Commissioner Charity Katanga says this is because Mr. Ng’ambi is out of jurisdiction.

Mr. Ng’ambi was discharged through a nolle Prosequi before the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) ordered for his re-arrest.

Copperbelt Police Commissioner Charity Katanga has also clarified that the prosecution entered a nolle prosequi without informing the Police.

Mrs. Katanga told ZNBC News that the instruction to re-arrest the suspect was only given after a day.
She said in a normal situation, prosecutors are supposed to inform the police before entering a Nolle if there is need to re- arrest a suspect.

Mrs. Katanga further explained that the prosecution of cases is no longer being done by the Police but by the National Prosecution Authority (NPA).

She said Police can only know if the suspect needs to be re-arrested after a nolle upon being communicated to by the prosecutor.

Mrs. Katanga said when Mr. Ng’ambi was arrested, the police refused to grant him bond looking at the seriousness of the matter.

She said the accused was only given bail by the court.

Last week the DPP issued a statement claiming that the state entered a nolle in the matter with the view to re arrest Mr. Ng’ambi.

The DPPs office wondered why the accused has not been rearrested when instruction was allegedly given.

The DPPs office explained that the reason for entering a nolle prosequi was to slap the suspect with appropriate charges that are in line with the gravity of the offence.


  1. Imagine the man practicing GBV …?

    He might be an example of men who like chasing young ladies for love and look at their wives at home as OVERSIZE….

  2. What is this girl Katanga talking about him being out of jurisdiction …really laughable….this is all shambles, how can people still be in the job with such co$kups!!

  3. The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, I believe is above the Police. So if there’s an instruction from the DPP, police should act fast and do their job

    • Shadeck you have made my evening, I’m laughing so hard!!
      Zo -ona ni “Frank Bruno” only difference being our Zambian Frank Bruno is a specialist in Knocking out women.
      Where is Holier than thou P.F Religious Cadre (God)Fridah?
      Not heard a peep from her, obviously protecting her Belly in case She offends Jona by condemning one of Jonas trusted Stormtroopers.

  4. “Out of jurisdiction”
    Does that make the honourable a fugitive , on the wanted list, to be manhandled or shot on first sighting?

    And how much is the reward for information leading to his capture?

  5. Had that adulterous Wife beater been an opposition member, all these semantics of Jurisdiction fyo fyo fyo, would have NOT been adhered to, & that person would be in Chitrokosi now!
    Only in Kampyongo PF controlled Zambia.
