  1. The police know all the communities very well we wonder what has happened to plain clothes detectives in the service have they been retrenched because they seem to be many steps behind with correct position in our societies.

  2. Too bad! Dudley’s self induced suffering leaving a wife and Children in squalor is beyond imagination. What befell him?

  3. The police know the culprits behind all this nonsense. These youths are just being used by selfish individuals for their own selfish ends. These boys will regret having been lured into these criminal activities with the sole purpose of instilling fear into these communities. The evil sponsors will not succeed. Zambia shall be free.

  4. Prepare for more gangs like this Esther. I understand there are criminologists in your mother ministry, the Ministry of Home Affairs. If they’re practising it as per book, they ought to know that the first mistake was made 56 years ago by Kenneth Kaunda’s govt. The UNIP government revoked the colonial government’s influx control laws without sitting dwn to agree on wht to replace the laws with.

  5. Let your people in uniform and occupying nice built houses follow the thugs and crooked individuals malingering along the roads & streets north of chibolya school lusaka who are committing robberies in broad daylight. These are the same thugs who visited your offices to cause mayhem and violence. Its a breeding ground for thuggery & if possible barricade or demolish the place for easy monitoring.

  6. If opposition politics is a crime, why does the Ministry of Home Affairs through the Registrar of Societies allow opposition political parties to operate? If the police are professional, their eyes should be on the ball.
