Zambia Police Warns Against Lawlessness

Share

The Zambia Police Service says it will not hesitate to clamp down on people wanting to cause disorder in public places. Zambia Police Spokesperson, Esther Katongo said Police will allow people to disturb the prevailing peace in the country.

Ms. Katongo disclosed that security measures have been in place to ensure order prevails as the country awaits the final announcement of results for the August 12 general elections. Speaking on ZNBC TV1 today, Ms. Katongo said Police are on high alert and conducting patrols around Lusaka.

Ms. Katongo called on the public to remain calm and patient until all the results for the polls are announced by the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ). Ms. Katongo also implored political leaders to desist from issuing irresponsible statements on social media as they have the potential to incite the public to demonstrate.

Ms. Katongo noted that maintaining peace is a preserve of every well-meaning Zambian.

Meanwhile, Ms. Katongo has called on the public to celebrate responsibly once the final results are announced for the August 12 general elections. She, however, has cautioned members of the public to refrain from engaging in premature celebrations until the winner is announced.

“Don’t be provocative as you celebrate, don’t go and celebrate at private properties you be arrested, don’t cause mayhem,” she advised.

    That sounds about right – old habits die hard.

  3. Fire her immediately and lock up the IG.
    All these people are the main reason the PF thugs took over the country.
    Don’t forget to lock up Kampyongo too…the biggest fool who thought Zambia belonged to his family. Intimidating poor all the time. We told you the time was coming for you to pay for your sins.

  5. Only a mad cow can declare these elections as free, fair and credible. ECZ should do a rerun without the two violent satanic parties which have blood on their hands. Mr Nshindano and his ECZ should act instead of just issuing threats.

  7. There is need for complete overhaul and retraining of the the Zambia police Force and turn it into a service. pf cadres need to be identified and removed. All the police officer who were prematurel retired under pf due to tribe and political interference must be brought back.
    The Zambia police service need to regain the trust of the Zambian people under UPND.
    They are among the 10 worst police services in Africa. The next Police command has to ensure proffessionalism comes back to the servce.

  9. Lazy Lungu gave ZP 6 months to reform or else..really laughable ….we told him that the only one getting the boot was himself…now he is stubbornly refusing to concede when he is losing seats in strongholds such as CB and wining by small margins in Eastern Province. Can you imagine if HH was allowed to freely campaign?
