Videos and Audios on Social Media depicting crimes being committed in Zambia are fake-Police

General News Videos and Audios on Social Media depicting crimes being committed in Zambia...

The Zambia Police Service has noted with regret the number of videos and audios being circulated on Social media of purported crimes alleged to have been committed within the country.

Acting Inspector General of Police Eugene Sibote has urged the public to ignore the calculated falsehoods being peddled on various Social media platforms and advise the general public to seek clarification from the Police whenever they are faced with any matter of security concern.

Mr. Sibote said from preliminary investigations and findings by the Police, these video incidents being circulated do not depict incidents that have occurred and recorded in Zambia.

He said these videos originate from other countries but merely edited to suit the evil agenda of those behind their circulation.

Mr. Siboted said the videos or audios being circulated are intended to cause fear, alarm, and despondency among the general public.

“So far the Zambia Police Service has not recorded any such incidents in any part of the Republic of Zambia. Further, the public may be consoled by the fact that no family has so far registered a loss of their family member as depicted in the videos being circulated”, he said.

He has warned all those behind such falsehoods that police shall soon catch up with them and they will be held accountable for their actions.

Mr. Sibote has further appealed to the general public to go about their businesses with the full assurance that the Police are working round the clock to bring these alarmists to book.

  1. Fake news is a global disease. As pf we need to ensure that this scourge is eliminated. I have been a victim of this and continue to be with many fake news and allegations about me. However, I choose to ignore liars.kz

  2. Rubbish police, people literally had to go and protect on the streets to get your attention. The people don’t trust you anymore it’s like you protecting the criminals and not the people you supposed to protect

  3. Even Donald Trump denounced fake news at Davos today, regretting the low standards of journalism being exhibited these days. Real shame.

  4. Stop yapping and go catch the ritual killers.

    This nonsense that has surfaced since Lungu took over has to stop.

    People in Chingola are living like prisoners.

  5. These police officers are the most useless in the world, they just know how to extort information through torture. They still have not found that lady who stole money from a bank vault and how do you attract investors with such a useless police force led by an incompetent Inspector General.

  6. Tarino Orange you should respect the police, they keep you safe and at the same time they protect you from criminals, if you call them useless where will you run to when you will be attacked by those criminals.
    Better to appreciate those officers for the work they do when you are fast asleep at night they patrol those streets when you are drinking beer they are keeping you safe, and you call them useless.

  7. IT IS AMAZING HOW LOWLY AND DESPERATE SOME PEOPLE IN OPPOSITION CAN BE! WANTING TO FRUSTRATE THE GENERAL ZAMBIAN POPULACE SO THAT THEY TURN AGAINST THE CURRENT GOVERNMENT! WHAT THEY FORGET IS THAT THE SAME TACTICS CAN BE USED AGAINST THEM WHEN THEY ARE IN POWER, THAT IS, IF THEY WILL EVER BE! SOME OPPOSITION PARTIES THINK THAT IF LATE MICHAEL SATA MADE IT FROM OPPOSITION TO FORM GOVERNMENT, THEN THEY WILL ALSO DO IT! BUT SATA’S SITUATION WAS VERY DIFFERENT TO THE SITUATION THE CURRENT POLITICIANS ARE IN! AND SATA WAS ONE OF HIS KIND, VERY INTELLIGENT, HUMOROUS, ORATOR AND UNEQUALED STRATEGIST, ATTRIBUTES WHICH NONE OF THE CURRENT OPPOSITION POLITICAL LEADERS POSSESS, MAKING IT VERY DIFFICULT FOR THEM TO EASILY WIN OVER THE ELECTORATE! HAKAIVOTERA HUMWINE

  8. @Nshili: Thank you for that. These opposition failures are real armatures, they think if they come to power they will change the whole ZP.

  9. Let the Police do their job and not condemning the people who are giving them info. Can you tell us about what happened in Kalulushi and Chingola. The other day it was in Masaiti and Lufwanyama. Are you sure that is fake news? Kitwe also affected by the same criminals. Is that fake news?

  10. This generation is the enemy of itself, even when authorities come out to clarify and state facts, you still want to argue and hold on to the false news you have received without authenticating the same, its a real shame!
    The police are stating the facts here, which is no families have reported being hacked or their family member being hacked. Is it not the police that picks up dead corpses? If they say they have not picked up any in relation to the purported murders why should you argue with that?
    If you dispute what the police are saying, instead of saying what about place so and so where you HEARD what you heard, at least provide proof of the remains being taken to the hospital mortuary. If police are ‘lying’ or ‘covering’ their ‘incompetence’ , surely hospital / mortuary…

  11. …surely hospital or mortuary staff can provide the truth!
    People are prepared to believe a lie rather than the truth. Evidence of the last days! Take heed lest Christ finds you unprepared.

  12. Comment: especially social media is killing us, more the guys from the opposition ZICTA are not doing there job to help bring these culprits to book

  13. This is how shallow some police officers can be….evidence is there on radio on television people are talking about it, our police officers in this country have been blinded by corruption people are dying you cant even see, people are crying you cant even hear them…. But busy been childish blaming everything on the opposition….you should be ashamed of your self…

  14. Are they all fake? No truth in any one of them? Where is Kanganja? Will you also be a denier of facts like him?
