Rural News Zambia Police confiscate 45 guns from 5 chiefdoms in Mwinilunga district

Police in Mwinilunga district in Northwestern province have confiscated 45 firearms in Chibwika, Kanong’esha, Kakoma, Kanyama and Sailung’a chiefdoms.

Out of the 45 firearms, 13 are locally made muzzle loaders and were collected from senior chief Sailung’a, who informed the police that he was in possession of the firearms surrendered to him by his subjects.

Northwestern Province Commissioner of Police, Joel Njase has confirmed the development in a statement availed to the media

Mr. Njase explained that police in the area received a phone call from senior chief Sailung’a on July 16, 2021 around 10:00 hours indicating that he was in possession of 13 fire arms surrendered by his subjects.

He said police made a follow up and collected the muzzle loaders which are being kept in the armoury at Mwinilunga police station.

“For this reason, police made a follow up to chief Sailunga’s palace and found 13 muzzle loaders which have since been collected,” he said.

Mr. Njase said in addition to the 13 muzzle loaders collected from Sailung’a chiefdom, 32 more guns were confiscated from Kanong’esha, Kanyama, Kakoma and Chibwika chiefdoms.

He said the move to confiscate the firearms will help in addressing incidents of people shooting each other on suspicion of practicing witchcraft.

He said incidents committing suicide by shooting oneself, poaching and other illegal activities would also reduce.

Mr. Njase said the programme to confiscate firearms is expected to continue for some months.

“So far the total number of firearms that have been confiscated is 45 and this will go on in the next months,” Mr. Njase said.

  3. Smelling a RAT all the way,we all know how you guys were given a cold shoulder in Mwinilunga. Iyi ndiye desperation manje n I feel you because 26 days ni razor especially if you been in power for 20 years. Be careful of the traps you’re setting for HH you will end up falling in them yourselves. Lwenu!

  4. If you arrest the gassers then you’ve cracked this muzzle gun case.I got a feeling the same thugs are at it again. So imwe ba police concentrate your efforts on those who removed 50 Zambians from the face of the earth, lest we forget .

  5. KZ come 12 August the Zambia army will do a Malawi to protect the people because they feel the utter disgrace brought upon them by PF thugs. PF thugs in government have disgraced the soldiers by not paying them on time and stealing their UN mission money without shame.

    If PF thinks the army are on their side by getting assurances from the comamders , then they should think again because its the junior soldiers who made a bold move in Malawi against the commander. The Zambian soldiers will this time act to be counted in the struggle for a better Zambia as they are equally experiencing the suffering that every Zambian is experiencing under PF.

    VIVA Zambia army. Please help liberate Zambia from PF thugs.

    PF will be voted out if they rig Zambia army will move in to protect the vote…

  6. ILLEGAL FIREARMS ARE IN ALL PROVINCES
    YET YOU CHOOSE MWINILUNGA
    I WONDER WHY ??
    PLAYING INTO THE HANDS OF PF AGAIN
    IT WONT WORK SORRY
    PF MUST FALL
