Kampyongo Warns Jerabos; “The Law Will Deal With You”

Home Affairs Minister Steven Kampyongo has warned Jerabos against causing confusion in Chingola District.

Kampyongo sounded the warning following a series of reports of lawlessness among the Jerabos in Chingola.

He said his Ministry will not allow lawlessness to continue and will put in place measures to ensure that sanity is restored in the district.

“I want to make it very clear that we will not allow any lawlessness in Chingola district especially where illegal mining activities are concerned. I don’t care whether you are a Jerabo or what we must all respect the laws of the land,” the Shiwang’andu Parliamentarian warned.

He said security will be heightened in the district and ensure that communities are not made to live under fear.

Kampyongo warned that law enforcers will not spare anyone that will be found engaging in lawlessness behaviour.

Recently some Jerabos in Chingola terrorised communities after one person from a rival group was shot and died at the hospital following a scuffle.

    Thanks Bwana Minister, a stitch in time saves nine. Everyone and everywhere we need protection but there are some misguided
    members of our society who think they are above the law. Put them in jail they belong there.This should continue during the political gatherings where for example youth s are seen doing the work of traffic police and causing chaos on roads.

      We urge the Honourable minister to cage those abalile mwibala during privatisation and today they want to be champions against this Bemba idiom after cleaning,burning and even stealing the whole field.

    Does the man understand the meaning of lawlessness?It means absence of law.Abusing public order act is lawlessness,corruption is lawlessness,firing pipo on the basis of tribe is lawlessness,deporting investors to please your friends is lawlessness,sir you are the last person who should preach about lawlessness.

  3. bwalya obed

    more police officer should be deployed in the district to safe guard the lives of innocent residents, these jerabos don’t fear the all administration of the police in the district

    Warning is noted but warn even those who are in government who practice unlawful. The same way you warn jarabos

  5. Geoffrey Bwamba Mwalya(GBM)

    Indeed lawlessness must not be entertained.

    Zonzo you shud go back to school and learn civic education doing or breaking the law without fear is lawlessness so do want people to start misbehaving while the police looks on if one misbehaves and is dismissed because he did didn’t the signed procedure that person deserves to go if the law tells the civil servants to be loyal to the government of the day and you do the opposite you shud be given way to do politics is that lawlessness?watch yourself if don’t follow the law. The law will follow you zonzo

  17. Formidable

    Mr kampyongo Action speak louder than words yeah,you have been drastically restoring sanity in Lusaka chibolya compound but when it comes to jerabos here in CB nothing as been done why has living in fear were by they is police ,anyway we shall this time your quick response will be highly appreciated.

  18. Michael Chileshe

    Honourable Minister you have spoken well, but it is not only Chingola that requires sanity in that regard but the entire nation. This whole thing has to do with the government allowing party cadres to be unruly and feel that they are above the law. They do not respect the police. The police can not act because they fear to lose their jobs because they have seen what has happened to their colleagues who tried to work professionally. Just do the right thing as the Minister responsible for maintaining law and order and there will be sanity. Have political will. See what happened to the eyesore that was in the CBD in Lusaka due to street vending? The CBD is now clean and everyone is appreciating. In leadership you sometimes have to make hard and unpopular decisions to do the right thing. That was a mark of good leadership to have decided to remove the street vendors. Political will!
