Falsehoods Behind Copperbelt Riots As Police Deploys 150 Officers To Chingola

Copperbelt Province Police Commissioner, Charity Katanga has disclosed that more than 150 police officers have been deployed to keep vigil in Chingola following continued riots.

Chingola has witnessed a number of riots and looting of shops by residents in Chiwempala over alleged ritual killings in their communities. Mrs. Katanga has advised residents in Chingola to allow the police to do their work and avoid disturbing them in order to restore sanity.

And Acting Inspector General of Police Eugene Sibote has dispelled online reports suggesting that there are rampant cases of ritual killings in Chingola and surrounding towns on the Copperbelt Province.

Mr. Sibote said the videos and audios being circulated on social media of purported crimes have not been committed in Zambia. He added that the content being circulated is intended to cause fear, alarm and despondency among the general public.

“So far the Zambia Police Service has not recorded any such incidents in any part of the Republic of Zambia. Further the public may be consoled by the fact that no family has so far registered a loss of their family member as depicted in the videos being circulated,” he said.

    Is it true or not over the ritual killings in chingola:others are saying it is true , others are saying it is not!! Now, which one is the correct information?

    • Concern chingola citizen

      Ritual killing true it happened anyone disputing . let him ask himself .why, how what . the source and cause of riot and rooting the suspected ritual killers . there is no smoke without fire. Frankly speaking ritual brutal killing happened in chingola chikola loop area where a family was invaded and the family members cut by swords and a woman killed in cold blood. And what is happening now several misterous things is happening every night . we are not sure if thieves or the witches have taken advantage to join the the ritual killers . because now people are not sleeping freely . some families are based and loosing lives. Also the beating of people are caused by the neighborhood watch formed. These people are taking advantage to use the group and are the ones beating people together with the group leaders who are police men. The only thing which has not pleased the chingola residents are the words which the I G had spoken. Pls Mr IG of police can you reverse your statement . in chingola there is no peace these days. People have sleepless nights they are working as if they are police officers . pls beef up with more police officers or employ more police officers . if thee are people feeding that chingola is peaceful pls they are just fooling you. Just fire them .may be they are behind what is happening in chingola. If you fail transfer them to other station they are very corrupt . the arrest innocent people and collect money poor citizen pls help us remove bad eggs from police service . including the traffic police these people care also brutal they have contributed to the crime going on in chingola in one way or another.

  20. Levels

    It is very true. I come from chingola. They are just trying to avoid the riotous behaviour that is taking place in chingola this is why they are hiding the true info!!

    • giv dollar

      they are working together.God will deal with them all

  21. Giv dollar

    I stay just near the chiwempala police station and to say the truth, I’ve been attacked twice but reporting to the police is a waste of time it’s as if the police are working with the criminals or they are following using orders from their criminal bosses.on Sunday minister of defense Davies chama, minister of home affairs Stephen kampyongo and kakoma kanganja police IG came to worsen the situation here in chingola by refusing the police and soldiers from offering their security services to the community and blinding us hence announcing that thy are no attacks.God

  22. Giv Dollar

    They can cheat pipo bt God will expose them all,if they are politicians,they can’t win with pipo z blood,if they are farmers their farms will be dry,if they are business men and women their businesses will fail,if they are musicians no one will listen to their music and if they are civil servants one day they will regret this.God will deal with them

  23. givdollar

    I’m suspecting the police

  24. Black
