  1. Who is Kanjanga? When 17 million Zambians put their minds together there’s nothing they can’t do. slowly slowly but Zambians are realizing that there were cheated by crooks in suits

    • Who is Kanjanga? When 17 million Zambians put their minds together there’s nothing they can’t do. slowly slowly but steady, Zambians are realizing that they were cheated by crooks wearing suits

    • Ladies and gentlemen, we hv a potentially volatile situation in Chingola. Let’s support the police as they try to restore normalcy to this mining town. Life in Chingola revolves around Konkola Copper Mine which is now in receivership. ECL promised a new investor by end of July or August 2019. The chances are there won’t be one in August 2020. That’s the situation we face. The people rioting aren’t against any political party. They’re against the gloomy social-economic situation.

    • #1. You are the biggest fool Zambia has ever produced. You are being looked after by a fat white woman in Germany and you are wishing your mother land where your entire clan is living hell in the name of tribal politics? Wanya ukabwela.

  2. Kanganja you have failed miserably. That’s why the local MP even wants to bring in the army since he has lost confidence in the police.

  3. Useless man this cop. These so called ritual killers come and disappear like lions on the Savanna. I have never heard anyone convicted of these crimes. How this IG is still in the job s beggars belief.

  4. In January 1990, about 150 guerrillas led by Charles Taylor invaded Liberia’s Grand Jedda County from the Ivory Coast. President Samuel Kanyon Doe’s first reaction was a menacing address to the nation warning all mothers to keep their sons from the insurgency claiming his armed forces will crash the rebellion and kill all the guerillas. On Sept. 10, 1990, President Doe was captured by rebel Prince Yormie Johnson, shot in both legs before being decapiuatated by an enraged Yormie before an internation press. Kanganja must know these Chingola riots are the beginning of the end, he must be ready to die with Jonathan Kanyon Doe Chagwa Lungu! 2020 kuya, nokunya bebele!

    • You forgot to mention that his ears were also cut off too because of not listening to the people who were suffering

  5. The police have our full support in ensuring law and order is maintained and the protection of private and public property. We have full reports that certain elements with political motives are tying to take advantage of this confusion. Let them be informed that they’ll feel the wrath of the Law. This is not a banana republic. Kz

  6. Aways ‘warnings’. There is no professional analysis of the situation and the best objective way to tackle it. He rather speaks like a politician on a witch hunt in his language.

  7. “Mr. Kanganja says Police have information that some people are trying to take advantage of the situation in the mining town.”-LT
    The images that are coming out of the Copperbelt, chingola are disturbing this administration need to resign. They have the intelligence but they don’t want to do anything about it. The Economy.

    The 75th session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA 75) will open on Tuesday, 15 September 2020. The first day of the high-level General Debate will be Tuesday, 22 September 2020. Plenty time for PF administration to do something to validate opposing arguments they will put forward. Artificial intelligent taking notes to Advise decision-making organization.

  8. “The residents were protesting over the alleged hackings and killings that have been happening in mining the town.”

    So there are people “mining the town”? Are they PF or Trible UPND cadres? Can only be either of the two. Not even Chimbwili can do that!

  9. This Kanganja I wouldn’t hire even as a security guard. He is so clueless on how to mantain law and order. He is too obsessed with the little power that comes with his position. He even calls the police as’ my officers’.. Useless chap

  10. surely does law have to warn an offender who knows what the law says,mr Inspector general please discharge your duties competently as well as professionally.thank you things are really getting worse in Zambia
