FDD reports IG to complaints authority for failing to arrest MwilaBy Mirriam Chabala on 31 Jan 2017
FDD spokesperson Antonio Mwanza has filed a complaint against Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja with the Police Public Complaints Authority for failing to arrest PF secretary general Davies Mwila, who was filmed inciting PF cadres to forcibly take over the running of markets and bus stations in Kabwe.
In a statement issued today, Mwanza asked the Police Public Complaints Authority to cite Kanganja for complicity, professional ineptness and violation of the Zambia Police Act.
“I wish to inform the nation that I have today the 31st of January, 2017 lodged a formal complaint against Mr Kakoma Kanganja, the Inspector General of Police with the Police Public Complaints Authority for complicity, professional ineptness and violation of the Zambia Police Act for his failure to have Mr Davies Mwila, the Secretary General of the Patriotic Front arrested and charged for inciting PF cadres to forcibly take over the running of markets and bus stations in Kabwe,” Mwanza stated.
Mwanza stated that there was no justification for Kakoma’s failure to arrest Mwila.
“CAP 107 of the Laws of Zambia gives the IG full command, superintendence, direction and control of the entire Police Force. Hence, the failure by the IG to act on a formal complaint duly presented before his office is professional ineptness and a serious violation of the Zambia Police Act. I therefore asked the Police Public Complaints Authority to accordingly cite Mr Kakoma Kanganja for professional ineptness, complicity and violation of the Zambia Police Act. I will pursue this matter to its logical end because impunity, lawlessness and wanton abuse of authority and public resources must not be tolerated in any democratic country,” stated Mwanza.
On January 20, Mwanza wrote to Kakoma asking him to arrest Mwila for his “criminal utterances” but no action has been taken.
However, the Patriotic Front last week suspended two Kabwe officials who are suspected of having leaked Mwila’s recordings.
