Headlines Kampyongo assures the nation of peace during and after August 12 general...

Home Affairs Minister, Stephen Kampyongo has assured the country of continued peace and tranquility as the country heads for general polls on 12 August, 2021.

Speaking when he commissioned the newly upgraded Mapalo police station, Mr. Kampyongo said that his ministry will also continue rendering the necessary support to the men and women in uniforms.

ZANIS reports that Mr. Kampyongo has also instructed the police command on the Copperbelt to deal with any perpetuators of violence, political cadres inclusive, irrespective of the party they belong to.

The minister has advised police officers to acquaint themselves with the new technology that the ministry is implementing for them to effectively execute their duties.

He likewise directed the Copperbelt Police Commissioner, Elias Chushi to ensure that officers are deployed to the station immediately.

“Commissioner ensure that officers are deployed immediately. I appeal to you that the President has given instructions that you serve the people without fear. Deal with perpetrators of violence without looking at the color or political affiliation,” Mr. Kampyongo said.

Mr. Kampyongo said government is working hard to change the way of policing adding that he is a happy minister to see police officers operating in conducive environments.

And Ndola Central Member of Parliament, Emmanuel Mulenga said there can never be development without peace.

Mr. Mulenga explained that Chipulukusu compound has grown in population and a modern police station was a necessity.

The Lawmaker , who is also Minister of Youth and Sports, has since appealed to his Home Affairs counterpart to help the station with a vehicle to enhance operations.

“Without a vehicle, these officers will not be able to execute their duties effectively. So the police need to work well because this area borders with DRC where people even smuggle mealie meal,” Mr. Mulenga said.

And speaking earlier, Copperbelt Province Minister, Japhen Mwakalombe said the police station will not only enhance security in the area but also attract investors, thus contributing to job creation.

Mr. Mwakalombe said there is no investor who can bring their business in an area that is not safe.

“For me I just see job creation here, because investors will now come here, security has been a major cry. So the coming of this police station will create business opportunities, that will result in job creation,” Mr. Mwakalombe said.

Meanwhile, Copperbelt Police Commissioner, Elias Chushi said the station will help to prevent crime, which he added was cheaper to prevent than crime investigating.

Mr. Chushi told his officers to appreciate the efforts by government by reciprocating with improved security.

  1. Look at this small boy ….the former Katondo Street Dealer who has procured all sorts of military hardware for the Police. The problem with this party is there is no leadership…such assurances should come from the President after an Inter-party meeting with all stakeholders.

  2. We thank you very much ba minister for this assurance. Indeed, as government, we do not expect anything less considering the funding provided to procure tools and machinery for your staff . We expect alot of confusion from the upnd hyenas who always get too excited and start prematurely celebrating like premature ejaculation. This time around we say take stern action against anyone found promoting or acting violently, regardless of party loyalty As for my self, i will carry out my duty as a citizen and effect citizens arrest and even punch and slap those found wanting. we only have one zambia. remember people like HH have stolen alot of millions so they dont care if this country descends into war. he will just run away and go join his fellow baboons in diaspora there abroad. Speaking of…

    BUT ????????????????

  7. What assurances are these when ZPS killed Nsama Nsama and Joseph Kaunda in cold blood recently and justice in this Case is still illusive? What guarantees are there that these heavily armed Military Police will not kill more unarmed Civilians as we get to the Election Day on August 12, 2021?Kampyongo is all talk no Action Minister.

  8. Kampyongo surely won’t be minister after August 12th bcoz him and Lungu are going down.They won’t have peace of mind after losing.

  9. This useless dull minister and his ka useless boss are all id1ots.. Your time is up you thieving dull p0rn front party m0rons, if it is meno meno, useless dander head

  10. This statement should be an eye opener to the opposition becoz someone who will be contesting in the elections should be not be the same one giving a statement of assuring already peace Zambian citzen Ati peace during and after elections what is the meaning of that? it simpliy means these elections to him it will be as a formality not a contest in short he percieve it as an outright win situation.Maybe a pact of rigging has been already been arranged somewhere.Or else ECZ must come out clean on this one.ECZ must come up with an audited register and seal certain loopholes for rigging the elections.On the contrary The message from the current Ministers in govt should be If the Zambian People vote us back in power will shall ensure that Peace prevails
