Police in Lusaka have apprehended 11 male suspects for being in possession of offensive weapons. Deputy Inspector General of Police – Administration Eugene Sibote has said that the 11 were apprehended after a tip-off from concerned members of the public in Lusaka’s Chalala area.

Mr. Sibote said that the suspects were found in possession of 55 machetes, 6 teasers, 17 walkie talkies and 29 boxes of registration forms for Leadership Movement Party.

Addressing the media in Lusaka today, Mr. Sibote said the suspects were also found with 7 black berets, 13 black shot buttons and 11 pairs of black combat uniforms labeled LM.

Mr. Sibote said the suspects are detained in police custody for being in possession of offensive articles.

He said further investigations have continued over the matter to establish the motives of the group.

Mr. Sibote stated that in the interest of peace, the Police Command is considering making a strong recommendation for the deregistration of organizations such as the Leadership movement if investigations establish that the group had the blessings of the supposed political party.

And Mr. Sibote has expressed concern over a statement circulating on social media purported to have been issued by UPND Deputy National Youth Chairperson Gilbert Liswaniso under the headline “PF and Police should remove PF thugs from bus stops and markets b
Wednesday”.

He said the Police deems the statement to be in bad taste and has the potential to incite violence.

Mr. Sibote has directed all police officers to be on high alert and firmly deal with those who may decide to participate in such disorderly activities.

  1. The pf militia at it again. Nothing surprises us anymore from this government. A bunch of criminals who have no moral compass whatsoever. What independence are you going to be celebrating in a finished country? You might as well save your money for you and your families future or go to work o that day. My white beautiful wife always wonders how a poor country like Zambia can have more holidays than rich nations. I am failing to defend you zambian to my beautiful white wife. I am not zambian till upnd are in power. I revoke my citizenship as I can’t take this.

    • Dear, Deputy Inspector General Eugene Sibote
      Your police organisation should and can be independent of state interference and influence. As professionally trained police officials, you should exhibit and uphold facts as opposed to employing insinuations and/or possibilities. In circumstances where facts do not subsist, you must not insert hearsay evidence and news items sourced from the press or a third party. You ought to be fearless and fair before, during and post credible investigations. Your current outbursts and feedback reflect a body of work conducted by police officials who want to appear strong, however, the very officials simply display desperation and frustrations. The two concepts mentioned in the supra sentence have damaging effects on citizens.

  3. Zambia police should arrest all UPND and PF hooligans. Zambians are peaceful, but tired of these two unruly entities.

  7. Why can police caution Liswaniso to say the statement on his social media can bring problems to the security of the City of Lusaka and asked Police to be on alert. I though the day Liswaniso issued such warns was the same day Lusaka Province Chair said he will instruct his youths to beatup Upnd. Did I hear Kabote the deputy IG caution Paul Monga. This is not fear, is Zambia yanyina PF. Come on Police you can do better. Don’t be drunk with PF because PF kuya bebele and you will remain police officers. We love you.
