NALUMANGO SAYS POLICE MUST RECONSIDER ROAD BLOCKS


Lusaka ~ Thur, 14 Oct 2021

Barely a month after the suspension of road blocks by home affairs minister Jack Mwiimbu, the government has suggested that the system should be brought back.

In trying to introduce new systems as a new government, Mr Mwiimbu announced the suspension of road blocks and snap traffic checks on roads.

However, following an increased number of avoidable accidents, leading to deaths, Vice-President Mutale Nalumango said yesterday that road blocks by police officers should be reconsidered to reduce on road carnage witnessed in the recent past.

Speaking at the burial of the Kabangwe accident victims yesterday, Mrs Nalumango said the reintroduction of road blocks will not be used to inconvenience motorists but to make sure there is law and order on the roads.

    Rubbish. Are you saying that there were no accidents when police where mounting road blocks. Targeting motorists as if drivers were their mobile cardless ATMs

    Why not just let RTSA run all safety programmes on our roads? I see a gross duplication of efforts btn them and the Traffic Police. Then let the latter be DISBANDED, and assigned to general police duties, which are in a SHAMBLES to say the LEAST!
