Police Procure High Tech Anti-Riot Vehicles

The Zambia Police will have a humongous addition to their armoury with 18 anti-riot police vehicles purchased by government.

According to Inspector General Kakoma Kanganja of Police the anti-riot vehicles were purchased in 2016 and are currently in South awaiting delivery.

Kanganja said the vehicles were part of the modernization of the Zambia police with the equipment meant to enhance policing especially where crowd control was concerned.

“Police mechanics are getting hands training on a Marverick Antiriot vehicle purchased for the police which will soon be delivered. It is in South Africa, all provinces will be catered for,” Kanganja said.

“We have two types actually, one type to be used by the paramilitary and Mobile Unit and the other for general riot situation. The total is 18 vehicles. So it’s the Marauder and the Maverick.”

He added: “The Police are being proactive and prepare for any eventualities and move with modern policing trends as we evolve into the 21st century.”

    What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and at last loses his eternal life are you so happy to receive those vehicles in the name of protecting your evil deeds does it mean you become so happy when you are killing and tear gassing innocent souls do you feel happy when people are suffering and when the are fighting for their rights you go and protect the unmercy investors leaving your people in abject poverty. One thing you must remember is that these innocent souls that your mistreating today God is watching and you and your heartless leaders will pay a price according to your hypocrisy way of governing us and subjecting your people to harsh treatment so now no say in Zambia but you are busy calling yourselves Christians wait a day of wrath will fall upon you and your families and the people of God shall sing a redemption song and thank the almighty jehovah

      You will only come to appreciate these vehicles when your property will be attacked by an angly mob of protesters. The Bemba’s may not be wrong when they say ‘Icalo tachitalala nga umusunga’

      How can you deliver a service in the midist of force? You definitely need to use force too. With the ermeging lawlessness by some sections of society, the vehicles are a must.

    Kudos to the Zambia police Service no need to take the marauders to all provinces just take them to southern province who have a proven record of attacking other ethnic groupings during elections If possible see if you can also procure helicopter gunships and armoured troop carriers to snuff out trouble makers early

    Why are they anticipating riots if they know they are not offending the citizens? The little I know is that protests and riots are the last resorts when citizens feel that the law and order have galloped out of the country through corruption and compromised institutions of justice.

    In readiness to deal with opposition members as well as civil society ngos who are complaining about purchasing fire fighting wheelbarrows at exorbitant prices. All this in the midst of austerity measures.

    Those vehicles are evil plans to hold on to power. We have seen these myotokas in other countries used to silence to masses. Thank you for coming with mediocre way of thinking. God is still saying something, we shall see. Given time to be the President I will sell the to Congo where they need them and buy jigs for children in all villages.
