The construction of an ultra-modern police station in Siavonga is nearing completion with 90 percent of works already done.

The new facility will also accommodate officers from the Immigration Department, as well as the Drug Enforcement Commission, who will also have offices at the facility.

District Commissioner, Ephraim Mwanjawanthu has told ZANIS in Siavonga today, that people in the district are extremely grateful to the government for its efforts to modernize police operations.

Mr Mwanjawanthu says that the current police station has limited office space and also lacks some other vital facilities, making it difficult to have more police officers sent to the district.

He said apart from the construction of the new police station, the government is also building staff houses for the officers, in order to boost the working morale of personnel, under the Ministry of Home Affairs.

And Woodlock Construction limited, the contractor handling the project, is confident of winding up the works as soon as all materials are delivered on sight.

Site Foreman, Sinya Nyambe told the District Commissioner, that only minor works are remaining to complete the project, and make it ready for handover to government.


  1. Is this what is ultramodern??? It’s perfectly ok to call it a new police station. Not sure what is ultramodern in this sense without defining what this means. Is this police station equipped with current technology to function effectively etc? Or is ultramodern a buzz word from someone who has not stepped out of Lusaka or Zambia???
