    Have you see! these are Cadres,watch out.


    Imwe ma police ba muma town nkhalankoni na chikondi nabanzanu monga mwamene bakondelana na kukhululupilana banzanu ma police bamu lundazi.My advise to the police officer who is on the run is!just be with God and hundle yourself to any oolice office.When you won’t do so it will mean that you did it deriberatly.

    Where were the other officers on duty? There are always more one officer on duty at a station. It sound a joke to have an officer shot at his work place by an intruder, then intruder goes scot free.

  8. Mutawale

    Why can these police guys just love one another the same way or even just close to the same way they love money??

    this officer is still armed with a rifle meaning he’s not ready to submit, take him him down at once because he’s no longer a police officer but a bandit, he’s now a threat to security in a country.

  13. bravo

    Cadreism without etiquettes. The blame goes back to the entire police station put everyone behind bars for interrogation and negligence.How possible is it that two fun officers can fire arms at each other then the other one runs away haaaaaa kkkkkkkkk this is mappet in fact tezindangwa iyooo this is nani munani takwaba which training was that ok ?

    De Zambian police they don’t say wt happens wen de shame z on dem.

  19. Pythias Mambwe

    The only thing that our government should work on is to remove the human rights at the military training schools cause the two officers are so indiscipline to pick a quarrel at a work place and couldn’t listen to their seniors on duty.l believe every shift has the senior most.This goes back to the training instructors who made those two officers who were half backed to pass out.Previously we had had well desciplined officers fired,convicted or implicated and loose employment over petty cases which would be sorted administratively, now this is the result of keeping officers who are criminal minded in the service.Now becauseof kabasiya’s frustrations, the community is endangered and also his wife including the nation at large.Remember that firearm is in the hands of a trained personnel. Chili Kuli owe kabasiya.

  37. Tres K Tru

    In Zambia 🇿🇲 police 👮 they is a lot of corruption and that’s the result of employing people who has no passion of joining the service,because if really me Edwin has a passionate heart of been in the Zambia 🇿🇲 police 👮 service he could have calmed down and understood the situation .you see how the service has been spolied,so sad 😞 to the nation at large.

    When the people report that police are unfair by sometimes not taking people’s reports and in the matter the normally accuse people of not reporting well at the same time the do fail to catch the culprits this has shown as quite well(how can they catch their own criminal if they are also criminals IF THEY CAN’T PRODUCE HIM THE POLICE IN CHARGE HAS TO BE QUESTIONED HOW HE GIVES RESPONSIBILITY TO HIS OFFICERS.God has shown as how this entire officers work
