Police launch a manhunt for a Police Officer who announced his resignation on social media

Share

Police have launched a manhunt for Sergeant Jason Chipepo, a Police Officer who announced his resignation on social media on 16th July 2020.

A video has gone viral on social media depicting Sergeant Chipepo number 43888 who has been absconding work since February this year.

Sergeant Chipepo said he took responsibility and decided to resign from the service because of the many wrong happenings including political interference in Police work.

He has also wondered why political parties such as PF, UPND and NDC among others have been allowed to have security wings which are undermining the work of the Police.

Zambia Police spokesperson Esther Katongo said the Police in Muchinga Province have been looking for the said officer after being absent from duty for a long time which is against section 26 (d) of the Zambia Police Act cap 107.

Mrs Katongo said the officer last reported on duty on 2nd February, 2020 and Police have not yet received any communication from him on his resignation.

She said according to the police act, Desertion is an offence committed by police officers who abscond from duty for a stipulated period of time and this is a matter triable by the Criminal Courts of Law.

  2. Leave Lungu out of this , the officer never sided with any party not even your Bantustan party. Check your penal code desertion or Absent without Leave ( AWOL) in a criminal offence. You don’t even know what he was doing with a firearm during the period under review. Opposition is not about yapping yapping but see sense in what is being discussed

    Stnpid! The man has resigned.. why is that an offence? What wrong has he done? It doesn’t matter how you announce your resignation, social media, text message, letter, etc. This is a new digital era and people get recruited and dismissed via social media, including Facebook, Twitterx WhatsApp and Instagram.

    Just revoke his security clearance if he held one; and calculate what is due to him and pay him his dues and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

    This country really never ceases to amaze me with all their archaic, stoneage laws. What a backward country!

  6. They are just embarrassed by him telling the truth. The Police now being controlled by PFCadres. Leave him alone, he is a man and has got strong balls that even Chinganja cant match!

  7. Instead of looking for gassers and those who attacked a police station, they are looking in the wrong hole. The mouse is busy burning jet fuel.

  8. In my view the manhunt should be for the Inspector General and his deputy, where were they when the highest police command was breached by mare cadres, did they hide in their respective bunkers, that in Zambia’s policing has been the highest LOW of the police command ever in our nation and in normal circumstances heads must roll but is our circumstance normal????

  9. This is a mere police issue. I don’t have much to say as we as government don’t have powers to control the police. They remain independent. However I I’ll advise them to sort out their internal issues in order for the public confidence to be maintained

  10. I said it before and I will say it again to these Diaspora demons like Tarino who keeps accusing the honourable police command thatbit is under PF. First of all the police are supposed to be loyal to the government of the day and to the president. 2nd we can’t allow lawlessness being exhibited by HH and his UPND thugs in this country. 3rd the Police Inspector General knows too well that if he disrespects the president, he will be kicked out because he is appointed by the president. So the police will always be seen to favour the PF and that is normal anywhere in the world. So suck it up UPND and grow up as your work has been cut out.

  12. The officer did not take side with any political party. Can UPND also answer to his question. Why do you have security wings in your party?

  13. Sergeant Chipepo said he took responsibility and decided to resign from the service because of the many wrong happenings including political interference in Police work.

    “The United States recalled its ambassador to Zambia on Monday after he criticized the government for sending a gay couple to prison and accused officials of stealing millions of dollars of public funds.”

    “He said that the furor over the ambassador’s comments on gay rights was just a pretext and that the real issue was his bold condemnation of corrupt officials.” The New York Times.

  14. Go and man hunt the gasser, the pipo who were burning the markets, the owner of the now 51 houses, the Rwandan rebel who implicated HOS. The list is infinity.

  17. I watched 10 minutes of the 30 minutes speech of that brave ZP officer. He is very good. There will be more resignations.
    When is next youthful protest?

  18. After absconding from work he comes and tells you I have resigned, Why do you treat idiiots with pride? Where on earth do you resign on social media? Quite shocking from bloggers supporting this criminal

  19. ZP should be grateful to Chipepo for exposing the difficulties they are operating in regardless of he being a deserter. Many @ ZP are suffering in silence and unable to perform tasks professionally due to situation and interference and they need the jobs to survive in land of few opportunities. Storming of police station and beating up police officers on duty could have never happened during KK’s days. There is big problem regarding law and order which needs to be put in check, lest we descend to wild west scenerio.

  20. Ba ZP jst leave him, y launch a manhurt for someone who does want to work whn the nation hs millions of unemployed youths who can seal tht hole he hs left.
    Let he tell the nation why he hs quit, thn u can improve the condition in the police service.

  21. Hilarious!

    He’s in Europe somewhere seeking legitimate asylum!!!!!

    Or maybe he travelled through Algeria/Morocco to catch a boat!

  22. Well if you find him he will come and tell you the reason he absonded is because he was tired of cadres coming to tell him how to do his job the wrong way. Cadres command his superior and his superiors delegate to juniors from cadres whats that? The police have not even refused the claims that cadres are bossing them so they have just decided to get another bossy message from the cadres to hunt him down and charge him for doing the right thing. I said it, there is no Police in zambia, maybe next year as at now we only have cadre slaves following orders from PF
