The Southern African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (SACCORD) has advised Lusaka province commissioner of police Charity Katanga not to be too excited and take Lusaka as her home village.
SACCORD information officer Obby Chibuluma says it is very unfortunate that Ms. Katanga could openly declare that she has gone on a war path in relation to yesterday’s foiled UPND demostration.
Mr. Chibuluma says Ms. Katanga should not be emotional when doing her job but should sober up and follow the law.
He notes that the police should always be aware of the fact that there is a constitution governing the country and that human rights must always be respected.
Speaking in an interview with QFM, Mr. Chibuluma says Ms. Katanga’s behavior when stopping the UPND youths from going ahead with their planned demonstration showed that the police service is so excited and lacks professionalism.
He has since called on the Inspector General of Police Stella Libongani to take a responsibility of disciplining erring police OFFICERS.
