Authorities Respond to Events at Kabwata Police Station, Stress Importance of Lawfulness

Share

Following recent events at Kabwata Police Station, authorities have issued a firm reminder regarding the sanctity of police premises under the law, emphasizing that any misconduct within their confines will not be tolerated.

In a statement released by Police Public Relations Officer Rae Hamoonga, it was clarified that the actions taken by Kabwata police yesterday were carried out in accordance with legal procedures. Mr. Nakachinda was released following due process, while individuals unlawfully camping at the station were lawfully apprehended. Notably, the arrest of Mr. Emmanuel Mwamba and three others was conducted within the bounds of the law.

Furthermore, police managed to seize three drums used by an unruly crowd, which will serve as vital evidence in ongoing investigations. Hamoonga reiterated that a police station is not a venue for disorderly conduct, emphasizing that individuals engaging in illegal activities within its premises are subject to arrest.

The statement also addressed remarks made by former Head of State, Mr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu, suggesting that “People will rise.” Authorities stated that these comments are under careful scrutiny, and the implications of such statements are being assessed. It was indicated that appropriate legal actions may be taken as necessary.

The importance of respecting the law and maintaining order was reiterated, with emphasis placed on the fact that a police station is not a venue for disruptive behavior. Authorities affirmed their commitment to upholding the law and ensuring the safety and security of all citizens.

As the situation at Kabwata Police Station continues to unfold, authorities urge the public to cooperate with law enforcement agencies and refrain from engaging in activities that may jeopardize public order and safety.

  1. How can the Buju expect people yo be lawfull when they themselves are lawless? Being cowed and timid isn’t the equivalent of being obedient. One day you’ll answer for these excesses and you’ll be alone. When that time comes you’ll have very few or no sympathizers. The current ZP operates on warning and intimidation as opposed to law enforcement. We have lost the Police to id iots

    • Politics made simple —
      Activist Kerina Mujati has brought the alarming incident of bombing Chris Mutsvangwa’s farm to public attention. By questioning the apparent silence from journalists regarding the matter. According to Mujati, the attack occurred during a time of heightened political discord between Mutsvangwa and Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa, suggesting a possible link to their notorious public disagreements.
      Who most likely bombed Chris Mutsvangwa’s farm seeing the country’s experienced only 3 bomb attacks since Rob Mugabe’s removal:
      1. 2017 – bomb planted under VP Chiwenga’s bed.
      2. 2018 – bomb exploded on VP Chiwenga and his wife, Marry.
      3. 2023 – bomb exploded on porridge (bota)-theft-victim, Chris Mutsvangwa’s farm?

    • Indeed HH used to dare Govt of the day even worse than these. HH is a wrong character to bring law and order to Zambian politics. May be someone neutral. The one who has not been soiled as HH and PF are. HH cannot prevent Lungu to congregate he has civil liberties like anyone else. Hakainde must just show enginuity and run this country properly he must not think that he is any special. No tribe in Zambia is any special we are all in it together. So HH come down to earth everyone has equal opportunity to rule depending on their popularity not tribe as you keep insinuating.

But Hakainde also must show us a time that he went alone to the police station when he was summoned while in opposition. This double standard will not work for Hakainde.

  6. What sancity ba mumbwe imwe. Upnd members have been reported for hate speech and nobody has been arrested. The Upnd cadres who killed Konga in Solwezi are freely roaming the streets. I thought you were unprofessional during the PF reign due to pressure from the party. But you have continued to be unprofessional even in the New Dawn government. It’s better not to have a police force.

  7. PF made the police lawless now they miss that lawlessness. They are still in shock of the rejection despite showing off usless so expensive infrastructure projects which they failed to pay for. These useless holligans like Lungu, Kaizer, etc were not supposed to be any near power, thats the price we pay for voting 1d1ots in power. Zambia has to pay this high price. When has Zambia ever had a smooth economical reboot, never, it happaned after UNIP and MMD. When economic policy changes theres a 3 years of uncertainty and then all settles as policy becomes entrenched.

  9. Kutumpa uku ba PF. Remove Lungu’s immunity so he tells us how a legitimately elected President will give up power other than through an election. The break the law and want to intimidate the police the same way they used to. Beat the hell out of them. We are tired of these minions

  10. Lungu’s wing of PF are nothing more than a gang of hooligans.
    The definition of a hooligan is: “a violent person who fights or causes damage in public places”.
    Is this not the Modus operandi of Lungu’s mob?
    Here is the usual trait:
    1. Do something illegal (usually by Nakachinda)
    2. Mwamba would round up the rabble gang
    3. They would then illegally gather on police premises
    4. Lungu would then show up and start making inflammatory statements
    5. The gang will then start creating mayhem
    6. some of them will try to get arrested (notable Mwamba) for propaganda purposes.

  11. JEMASON AND KACHASU ARE NOW MANIFESTING IN THE THE FORMER REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT. AND THOSE WHO SMOKE DAGGA, PLEASE STOP BECAUSE SOONER OR LATER THE DAGGA SHALL MAIFEST AS JEMASON AND KACHASU ARE DOING TO OUR FORMER LEADERS

  12. please ba lungu don’t continue following or being enticed by people like Nkachinda and Emmanuel Mwamba. plz reserve your self with the respect due, as a statesman /former president. In case you don’t know , all they want is you to continue releasing your ”hard earned cash’. Its for this reason that they have persuaded you to come back into active politics and as PF president . they do realize that all the eight who applied for the post are ”broke’ and their small reserves os cash are frozen by the state

    • “Hard earned cash”? By Lungu? Show me one politician who has earned cash without crookery and I will show you the angel Gabriel’s residence

  13. For the first time a CEO of the Zambia Election Commission has heaped praises on a sitting president… Ngande Mwanajiti was all over himself praising the president His Excellence Mr Hakainde Hichilema.

    • All cadres re appointed for praise singing not for any skills. To keep the job they have to be stuck on the chorus “The President is a great man!” “The President is a great man!” “The President is a great man!”

    • And the same Moonga has put road blocks in the registration of UKA for reasons best known to him. Why are we wasting time on such politics? When Upnd got elected everyone expected a real change from the kaponya type of administration but alas it’s like a football team, you change players but the traditional style of play remains.
