IG Talks Tough on Sesheke Violence

Inspector of Police Kakoma Kanganja says no life was lost Friday’s clash between the police and UPND cadres in Sesheke.

Kanganja has warned that police will would not deal kindly with political supporters that were championing violence in any part of the country during by-elections.

“The Zambia Police Service wishes to state that no live ammunition was fired by our officers that were dispersing the unruly crowd in Sesheke yesterday (Friday),” he said.

“We also wish to further clarify that no life was lost yesterday as a result of this fracas. As Zambia Police we have since reinforced our officers on the ground to deal with any further disturbances in the area.”

Kanganja said had reinforced their troops in Sesheke to ensure that the violence routinely taking place in the area is stopped.

“I therefore call upon all police officers to ensure that they use proportionate force in ensuring that violence is brought to a stop. The police will institute an inquiry to bring to book all those that could have perpetuated this violence,” he said.

Tension in Sesheke has been heightened as the by-election draws near.

    Blocking advant part 4 the president was a political move 2 decompign pf direct on president lungu face. HH has never learnt any lesson on mongu saga and he want 2 redo it in sesheke but police acted proffessionly bcoz warning shots was good 2 maintain peace. In uganda it happend a opposition leader bobwine lead 2 the death of his driver and HH Is used western has battle ground and i saw in him is pure actin in deep bush 2 win pipo sympath but him us using a word on what he do once a president than violence. HH ideaology of LIES has grow old and pipo are intersted in develop than fake promises without seeing them bcoz he want it 2 come after he bcoms a head state. Three provinces wester,souther ,north-west and partly of central are hold hostage by upnd leader the bet is 2 develop these places but in 10year 4 in leader fulfill all promises and power is sweet

    I have never seen professional police act in such behavior of abusing office. The roles of police is to maintain peace and unity in country. I’m not happy for what’s happening in sesheke where police officers abusing the roles.I feel sorry for my grandfather, grandmother children mother and father who can not manage to run.police officers pliz can u maintain your roles don’t b using by politician that’s your job which u went to the schools so y are u allow politician to using u. Kanganja is cadre not a ISG POLICE HE DON’T HIS duties what he should maintain.
