Kapeso rebukes his L/stone deputy for having a soft spot for UPNDBy Sipilisiwe Ncube on 14 Apr 2017
Southern Province Police Commissioner Bonny Kapeso has condemned his Livingstone Deputy Commanding officer Makanga for having a soft spot for the opposition UPND.
And Kapeso has ordered all police officers in the province to use reasonable force on any person or groups which attempt to push the police against the wall.
Kapeso’s remarks came in the wake of a Free-HH protest in Livingstone today which was not disrupted by police.
“Firstly, the local command in Livingstone should be scolded and scolded in the strongest terms for allowing UPND cadres reach the police station with their placards without being arrested or dispersed. HH is not detained in Southern Province at Livingstone Central and I am highly disappointed with the leadership of the deputy officer commanding, Mr. Makanga for having a soft spot with the opposition,” Kapeso said.
He urged all police officers to support the government of the day and to pay their allegiance to President Edgar Lungu who is Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces.
“These are the officers who can’t rise to the challenge and deliver because of their hidden agenda. Once again, police are hereby ordered to use reasonable force to any person or groups of persons who will want to push the police against the wall in Southern Province,” said Kapeso.
“And any police officer showing inclinations to the opposition will be dealt with by my office with serious consequences, including Mr. Makanga. All police officers should support the government of the day and pay their allegiance to the President of the Republic of Zambia and Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces, Mr Edgar Chagwa Lungu. The incident in Livingstone this morning is highly regrettable and unacceptable under my leadership in Southern Province.”
