    The tendency for hooligans in political parties to wear military attire has been encouraged by Police inactivity. It is time this mess was curtailed.

  3. Frank Chombela

    Very good for arresting them . But why do people want to wear military regalia? This isn’t an ordinary career which every Jim and Jack can pursue.

  4. Leon

    It has now become common these days it seems some people don’t fear the law aslo let’s have a law that bans even any attire resembling defence uniforms it’s very difficult to know who is who especially at night

    Those “Criminals” are only 18 not knowing really what the Laws of Zambia dictate on military Regalia. And plus the armed forces are trained by the US army’s weak commandos so there is nothing to be proud of
