In this audio, Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja says there is no turmoil in Zambia and people should not be deceived by prophets of doom.

He also thanks members of the public for collaborating with police in safeguarding peace and security.

“As Zambia Police, we are working tirelessly to ensure that all those with ill-intentions of causing confusion in this country are quickly apprehended and arrested,” Kanganja says.

He further reveals that police have arrested several people who had been using social media to encourage others to engage in violence.

“We will not allow people to break the law with impunity. We have intensified patrols and we will also monitor bars as these have proved to be hideouts for criminals,” says Kanganja who also advises people not to move alone at awkward hours.

Kanganja further says police will always uphold human rights.
