Lemmy Kajoba warns successful candidates in the recent teacher recruitment

Share

The Inspector General of Police Lemmy Kajoba warns successful candidates in the recent teacher recruitment against falling prey to unscrupulous people who are in the habit of swindling members of the public of their hard-earned money, especially during the clearance of Non-Criminal fingerprints.

In a statement issued Mr Kajoba noted that the fingerprints clearance certificate is duly issued by the Zambia Police Service and members of the public (Candidates) are advised to go by the ensued guidelines where fingerprint must be lifted from any nearest Police Station from the area where successful candidates reside.

He added that successful applicants are required to pay through the Commercial Bank money amounting to K84.00 at their local place and a Government receipt will be issued by the Zambia Police Service upon producing of a deposit slip of K84.00 from the bank which will be attached to the fingerprints lifted and sent to Zambia Police Service Headquarters for further processing after which the forms will be sent back for collection at the point of submission.

Mr Kajoba highlighted that all necessary forms have since been dispatched and as such, no one is expected to pay any money at a Police Station. There is no express fee attached to this process.

“As Zambia Police Service we will continue to ensure that we carry out our work in a professional manner at all times. You are therefore again advised to go to any nearest Police Station for further guidance,” he stated

On the 15th of July, 2022 the government through the Ministry of Education published names of successful applicants in the teachers recruitment exercise where 30,496 were recruited.

  1. Oh yes he was advising and not warning any one. No need for insults.

    • It’s common for the police to receive monies without issuing a receipt… the best they do is write a piece of paper that you have paid your fine. On this one it’s kudos to Kajoba.

  3. This is the correct procedure but at the station you will be told there is no transport to take your forms to lusaka so you have to wait a few weeks or even months before your clearance will come. But if you are ready to provide something for transport then it can be done in a day. To avoid this police service needs to come up with measures whereby the certificate will be ready at the station applied for within seven days from the date of application without fail. That’s when all this nonsense will stop.

  4. I am just wondering how this procedure works …I mean what database have ZP got or is it a way of just collecting data. ZP needs modernising and this process can be undertaken by Ministry of Education themselves linked to Home Affairs not Police. They are stretched as it is….I doubt a Police Station in Chama District will have those facilities or will be linked to main database if there is one.

    • There is no integrated database, the bank receipt works as proof that money has been paid, no exchanging money at the police service.
      That gives their accounts more work since they need to manually verify the money against the receipts received.
      A transparent process, but still an outdated one.

    • The idea is that when you commit a crime, your fingerprints are recorded in the criminal database system.
      The police scan your prints and run them against the database. If no unpleasant results show up, you are crime free and can work in government.
      Government doesn’t employ people with a criminal background.

  5. Elyo lwanya. Isnt this against our constitution? Isnt the request for fingerprints a violation people’s privacy.
    Anyway I worked in the civil service for seven years and we did nothing of the sort.Who came up with this brainless idea? I wouldnt mind if they did this only with Police and perhaps the uniformed forces.

  6. Ma rubbish….what free education are people talking about…Real free education was in UNIP ask the people who went to school in the 70s and 80s, This lying government have no shame…Now teachers that have been recruited are now been asked to pay K 84 if you multiple the number it will give you about 2.5 billion kwacha,what is the money going to be used for! Honestly people do these upnd government ministers declare assets one year after forming government! This government has no shame or integrity please stop insulting us we are not dull.
