Pres. Lungu Drops UPND Aligned North West Police Chief

President Edgar Lungu has with immediate effect retired in national interest North Western Province Police Chief Auxensio Daka.

Daka, who had been taken to North Western Province from Eastern Province, has been shown the door for allegedly meddling in politics.

According to a letter obtained dated 30th January, 2018, Daka has been shown the door despite having been committed to duty and creating a good working relationship with the media.

“In exercise, of the powers vested in me by Article 92(2)(e) of the Republican Constitution as read with section 26 on interpretation of the general provision Act Chapter 2 of the laws of Zambia, I hereby retire you as Commissioner of Police in National Interest with immediate effect” the letter read in part.

President Lunch has further thanked Mr Daka for the service rendered during his deployment.

Sources in the province believe Daka has been collaborating with the opposition UPND which enjoys acres of popularity in the new Copperbelt and the situation has not gone down well with the ruling party.

    It appears, Auxensio Daka, “cools” a we knew during those days at UNZA is a professional and that could have annoyed the powers that be. Just check, when we have a person who has served in the Police in the person of Dr.Martin Malama, the President has not appointed him to handle the “hot” Ministry of Home Affairs, may be because he will professional and thus against Party standards!!

    This move is a clear indication that even the police have to be PF cadres to maintain their jobs.Mr daka worry not coz u have been fired to be hired by 2021.My advise to u is keep calm and begin to record all the names of the pipo behind yo situation so that come 2021 wen u will be the Police I.G u also sort them out one by one in order of their hierarchy.

      A presidential appointee needs to toll the line. Daka should have known not to bite the finger which feeds him.

    Now he can do his job publicly, nothing is hidden to the eye of the president and his government.

    Please, is this how a democratic nation works? We are slowly sinking, back to the days of oppression and lack of expression. This man is establishing fear in all those who have a voice for change. Zambians lets wake up and realise this man for what he is, he is not presidential material. Dancing to dununa revere and they have delivered on their promise to drag us backwards. Dont select your rulers based on the hype but take into perspective the future of our mother land.

    I thought Daka, is wake ni wacko, what has happened. What I know he is hard working person very professional . He refused to be made captain of Mukula, so he must have been a danger to Lungu. Daka follows what he learnt at UNZA, he studied law, and was following law, but ba Koswe , wanted to be selling mukula without been questioned. This is the corruption we are talking about. Don’t worry sir, the sky is the limit , you are still young and intelligent. Nice things coming ahead you. Don’t be bitter, nibakoswefye obo.

    Zambia Police is not for politics,more especially senior Officers.Whether Dundumwezi or what, avoid at all costs to save your job. Continue dreaming that your Kalusa will ever rule Zambia.

    I now believe that even Police brutalizing Zambians are under interactions. The President is the one brutalizing Zambians. Remember there was Gaddafi,were is Mugabe? One day you will find yourself a zero from a hero.
