Kanganja again cautions political parties against conducting political activities without notifying the police

General News Kanganja again cautions political parties against conducting political activities without notifying...

Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja has cautioned political parties against conducting political activities without notifying the police during campaigns.

Mr. Kanganja has observed that some politicians are deliberately disregarding provisions of the law by conducting political activities outside the provisions of the law.

He says some politicians have opted to disregard the advice by regulating officers and have opted to go ahead with public activities even when advised not to.

Mr. Kanganja has also expressed concern that political parties are conducting their door to door campaigns and processions without notifying the police while abrogating the Ministry of Heal COVID-19 guidelines.

He has further urged political parties intending to conduct public activities to have public health certificates and notify the police of their intentions for security purposes.

Mr. Kanganja says some of the unregulated door to door campaign activities and processions which have resulted in political cadres clashing resulting in some sustaining injuries.

He has warned that Police will not condone such misconduct which has the potential to instill fear in members of communities.

Mr. Kanganja has since called on all those that intend to have public gatherings including Resident Doctors who have been gathering illegally to abide by Public Health guidelines which have been spelt out by Health experts through the laws of Zambia.

He says any conduct to the contrary shall not be tolerated by police and those found abrogating the law shall be dealt with in accordance with the law.

The Inspector General has directed all Regulating Officers at all levels to be firm on the ground and ensure that law and order prevails at all times.

This is contained in a statement issued to ZNBC News by Zambia Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo.

  1. This must apply to ALL and not only to some bwana. It is important that Zambians are accorded chance to hear the potential leaders so that they can make an informed decision in Aug polls. Let ZP be impartial in executing their duties during and after Aug polls. Remember you were sworn to protect the citizens and their property. And remember we are One Zambia One Nation One People regardless of ones political affiliation.

  3. Regarding CONVID-19, every Zambia in the country is advised to take precautions to ensure his own safety and the safety of other persons during the cause of this campaign. CONVID-19 can result in loss of life.

  4. 6 months ultimatum given to Kanganja is coming close, and he is showing muscles to please his masters so his contract can be prolonged.
    We have NOT seen any “political cadres clashing” during the door-to-door campaign. Videos have been shared where PF door to door has gone through UPND stronghold, which has resulted in booing……LUSAMBO can be a witness, as he experienced the same. BOOING can not be used as a reason to stop door-to-door campaigns. The police is being INCONSISTENT, firstly they were against political parties holding rallies, and they have just woken up, only to realize, that political parties are using door-to-door campaigning, and suddenly the Police is gain against it. This is TOTAL DESPERATION from the police and their masters they are trying to please…

  6. After lungu promised free and fair political space to some western and African diplomats ………

    Lungu has now watched with anxiety and high BP as UPND crowds grow……..

    Lungu is panicking and realises that in a free and open political space it is impossible for him PF to gain anything…..

    Hence his using covid to ban opposition….

    What does this Mambala think he is? Does he know he is merely a servant of the people, holding public office with rax payers money? He thinks he is god for merely wearing that uniform. This is the problem with 4th world countries, public officials are loyal to an individual instead of the country and the Constitution.
    It will take more than 1000 years before we catch up with human civilization… how sad!
    If it was so not conducive to campaign in an election year, why didn’t they cancel the elections and postpone them? Oh I forgot the Constitution doesn’t allow them… so why does he think he can trump on people’s Constitutional rights? Mambala!

  8. He’s been turned into a laughingstock, what went wrong. We really need to fight poverty because professionals can’t perform according to their calling because of uncertainty surrounding their life after service. They’re scared to lose their jobs

  9. This is law and has been in place for many years. Those found wanting should be severely punished because no one has excuse for not knowing the rules

  11. The problem is when they notify you then not only do you refuse them but also send your police in the area to make sure they don’t meet the people or sell their vision. Otherwise if you are fair nobody can have a problem of notifying the police.

    AS MOVEMENT FOR WITH OR WITHOUT PUBLIC RALLIES WE WANT TO REMIND OUR FELLOW ZAMBIANS TO BE STRONG AND FOCUSED DURING THIS PERIOD SO THAT WE CAN REFLECT ON HOW WE SHOULD TAKE ON THESE MORONS SO THAT WE LIBARATE OUR COUNTRY.

  13. BYE BYE PF >>>>>> ACCEPT DEFEAT NOW RATHER THAN FACE HUMILATION LATER
    WHY IS THE PRESIDENT CONFINED TO STATE HOUSE ????????
    WHY DOES NOBODY ANSWER THIS ??? DONT WE ALL HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW
    IF IT CARRIES ON ONE CAN ONLY SPECULATE HE’s ???????

  14. Kanganja is addressing none other than the opposition parties challenging the PF! He says the police must be notified yet what he means is permission must be sought from the police and it will obviously be denied! That other channels have to be engaged to reach out to the public, who does not know that “the available channels” have already been served with the modus operandi that is only accessible to PF!

  15. Kanganja, your work is to protect the public, not to suppress Lungu’s opponents. You have beeb restricting them for a long time. Aren’t you shameful to be used as a tool of oppression?

  16. Kanganja, your work is to protect the public, not to suppress Lungu’s opponents. You have beeb restricting them for a long time. Aren’t you ashamed to be used as a tool of oppression?

  17. Ba LT did the SG really say the following as reported by other media “This should also serve as a warning to all those attending Dr Sampa’s meetings on a zoom platform because they will be picked up for attending an illegal meeting.
    As police, we have enough capacity to follow up on all those attending the said Zoom meetings. The new law on Cyber Security and Cyber Crime has made our work easier in this regard. ” ? If so why did you omit it – too embarrassing for you?? Are we beginning to see what those who warned against this law were saying?

  18. The Zambia Police chief knows only one thing and that is threatening opposition politicians EVERY day. Zambia has a history of very few incidents of political violence. Before Kanganja was anywhere near Lilayi Police training camp, Zambians were voting in elections and doing so without the kind of violence we have seen in many parts of Africa. South Africans who are used to violence day in and day out come out to vote pissifully. There are no threats from the police. Meanwhile, in Zambia criminals are getting away with murder. There are very low arrest rates for crimes Zambians are subjected to day in and out. No threat to criminals but to peace loving and innocent citizens.

  19. We know that he is a PF cadre and all he wants is to protect his job. He has already praised Lungu for borrowing colossal sums of money to build (bribe) police with houses. the man does not care that his grand children will be burdened with debt as long as he is eating well today.

  20. Totally Disgracefull and Shameless.
    Let’s all remember that this P.I.G ( Police Inspector General) Kanganja is still on imposed Probation, fighting to keep his job.He is the Worst Police chief in the country’s history ,effectively on PF payroll to carry out State sponsored violence.
    If Edgar Lungu had any moral fibre in him ,he should have fired him when he had those two innocent citizens Slaughtered in the streets..
    We the people have Zero faith in you Mr Kanganja,,we shall only remember you as a Vicious Old African Crocodile.Lungu you should not extend this beast’s contract.
    How can you be going after Striking Doctors,they deserve their arrears paid immediately.The PF Criminal Enterprise of a Government has money to literally dish out in the streets,but can’t pay doctors what is…

  21. An election where only the ruling party campaigns and mobilizes at the expense of their political opponents is a rigged election. It is even better to cancel an election if campaigning is not allowed
