Headlines The 2021 general elections will be held under a peaceful atmosphere-Charity Katanga

Deputy Inspector General of Police In charge of Operations Charity Katanga has assured the nation that the 2021 general elections, will be held under a peaceful atmosphere as police are working words ensuring security is enhanced before and after the elections.

Ms. Katanga disclosed the plans to ensure security is observed are underway as police have adequately prepared to ensure legitimacy in the execution of duty is followed ahead of this year’s general elections.

“Law and order is not only confined to the police, all other security wings are critical to ensure law and order is observed,” She said.

Ms. Katanga said this when she paid a courtesy call on Northern Province Permanent Secretary Royd Chakaba in Kasama.

“So as the campaigns kick starts, I will give the hints of what is required,” she said.

She said 2021 is a critical year that requires a security plan that will reinforce law and order in the country.

Meanwhile, Northern Province Permanent Secretary Royd Chakaba pledged to supplement police efforts in ensuring law and order is followed in the province.

Mr.Chakaba also warned police officers against engaging in partisan politics but urged them to remain professional as they execute their duties.

“Officers should be above partisan politics and ensure that there is law and order in the country at all costs,” he said.

The Deputy Inspector General of Police Operations is in Northern Province on a familiarization tour as well as on a restructuring mission of the TAZARA police unit.

  3. The ZPS is State Captured and therefore cannot guarantee free,fair, credible and peaceful Elections in August 2021. ZPS has been Politicised and is only serving the interests of ECL and PF. This week ZPS was directed by ECL to go to Sivhuyunji and raid HH’s Mother in Law home in search of fire arms. ZPS heavily armed Policemen invaded the Rural Village and disrupted the home digging in maize fields for non-existent fire arms. In the past ZPS has failed to arrest PF Cadres who committed crimes. So we know ZPS will serve the interests of PF and against the interests of the Opposition especially HH and UPND. ZPS,ECZ and Concourt are State Captured Institutions which will used to rig the 2021 Elections in favour of ECL and PF. The writing is on the wall.

  4. So says the police woman who believed the people who were gassing Zambians turned into cats to void detection and melt away at night…….

    We all know what she means is the opposition will not be allowed to campaign for fear of attacks by PF cader thugs….,

  5. Charity Katanga is being dishonest. She knows very well that the upcoming 2021 Election will be the most violent and rigged. ECL and PF know very well that they cannot win the August Elections if they are free,fair,credible and peaceful. So they will try and rig the Elections at all costs. ECL has already been elected and sworn in twice and therefore doesn’t qualify for a Third Term. It’s obvious that stubborn and arrogant ECL will impose a Third Term for himself with the help of the State Captured Concourt . For this Zambians will rise up and fight 4 a Govt of their choice.

  6. “Our freedoms are vanishing. If you do not get active to take a stand now against all that is wrong while we still can, then maybe one of your children may elect to do so in the future, when it will be far more riskier — and much, much harder.”

  7. Peaceful elections will not happen just because Police say these statements five hundred times. This Zambia Police force is terribly politicised and unprofessional. Their track record is there for all to see. To expect them to make a 180 degree turn in the months leading up to elections is wishful thinking. What is more likely is that the Police will continue to be the biggest tool in making the campaign playing field very uneven and unjust and they will be used to brutalise and arrest the opposition while enabling the ruling party cadres to engage in wanton intimidation and brutality. The saddest part of it is that Zambians will just accept this as the way things are.

  8. Those are positive vibes. Amen! Amen! Amen!
    May God bless all Zambian Defense units. I applaud you for the assurance.
    Indeed we Zambians are peaceful. We shall be peace come what may and we massively vote for PF100%, ECL100%, PEACE100% and ZAMBIAN OVERDRIVE100%
    All perpetrators of violence are children of the evil one. We banish them to hell!
    Viva Zambia! Viva Peace! Viva Democracy!
    Righteousness, Peace and Joy that’s the kingdom of God.
    God loves Us Zambians.

  9. Charity Katanga cannot guarantee peaceful 2021 Elections. It’s only ECL and PF who can hold peaceful Elections if they so wish. The problem is that ECL is determined to retain Power at all costs. Even though ECL “has been elected and sworn in twice ” he will try and steal a Third Term. ECL knows that he is so unpopular and therefore can’t win free,fair,credible and peaceful Election. With this mindset ECL is trying to remove HH’s name from the Ballot Paper and if that fails he will rig the 2021 Elections decisively thru State Captured ECZ,ZPS and Concourt. ECL believes that in control of all Electoral Institutions he cannot lose the 2021 Elections. Thru ECZ the Voters Roll is already manipulated infavour of ECL and PF. What remains is to rig the Election Results after 12th August…

  10. Yes! Yes! we shall give to caesar what be caesar demands. If caesar demands peace, so be it. Peace it is, thanks!
    Know Your Candidate – KYC.
    Be sober enough to detect elements that would want you to fight for their cause. Neither Chagwa nor Hichilema is worth fighting for. The fact that their children are safe and sound, is evident enough that your life too is worth keeping. They just change policies but they definitely don’t food on your table. You are the solution to your problems. Seek knowledge. When you know, you know. Be wise.

  11. Thank you charity for the reassurance. This is why we bought police equipment and tools to make their work easy. We know how desperate some opposition parties are. Should they cause any confusion please deal with them firmly. As for me I am a black belt in karate and will defend myself should any tribal upnd thug attack me. I will beat the life out of them

  14. The most classic adage regarding trolling is, “Don’t feed the trolls.” Trolls seek out emotional responses and find provocation amusing, so replying to them or attempting to debate them will only make them troll more. By ignoring a troll completely, they will likely become frustrated and go somewhere else on the internet.

    You should try your best not to take anything trolls say seriously. No matter how poorly they behave, remember these people spend countless unproductive hours trying to make people mad. They’re not worth your time of day.

  16. Peace is a relative term. To some when there is peace it does not sit with them because they strive in confusion for that reason those on thet camp will cause as much confusion as they can. Can you believe the most powerful nation on earth failed to curb the insurrection? President Trump was not willing to maintain law and order because confusion would have meant his relevance would be assured. And what people saw was just total mehem. There are those in our country that know that their chances of wing an election are very slim, so they would want to ferment confusion so that they can be reklevant. The police have a duty under normal circustances to maintain law and order. And that is what the Deputy Inspector Genral is talking about. Who wants violency? except people that have nothing to…

  17. OMG TRADE MARKED NAMES IDI AMIN ADOLF HILTER, MUSSOLINI, ????????
    YOU IN GOOD COMPANY
    BESIDE THAT WHO WITH A SANE MIND WOULD WANT TO COPY THAT NAME ????

  18. Hahaha scouser you and I both know that prison is the place for violent upnd thugs. In fact they wish to be out there because they are pro gay. Funded by gay businesses. Why you think hh was always smiling when imprisoned. He was enjoying his stay there with his boyfriends

  19. The elections will ONLY be peaceful when the opposition is given space and time to campaign freely and peacefully without disturbances from PF police and PF thugs. Look at what happened to Kalaba on his mobilization tour of Northen and Muchinga Provinces? Infact rigging starts from here. It starts denying your political opponents time and space to mobilize and campaign

  20. Don’t understand people who think that hh will win this year’s general elections, by elections it’s 2 out of 26, possibility of win is not there. I have noted some useless under5 supporter insulting above and thinking by doing so hh will be in state house… shameful.. Anyway someone political career will end in August due to continuous failing to win..
