IG warns criminals, announces random car searchesBy Mukosha Funga on 2 Jul 2017
Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja has offered a K100,000 reward to anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of those behind the vandalism of Zesco pylons.
And Kanganja says motor vehicles will now be stopped randomly for thorough searches at snap security check points.
In a statement today, Kanganja warned criminal minded people who had resorted to sabotage.
“We are sternly warning all those criminal minded people who have resorted to acts of sabotage that the Police will not spare them when found wanting. We have intelligence information that some criminals are planning to deliberately cause havoc by destroying or vandalizing vital installations which include bridges, power stations, transmission lines, government buildings, communication facilities, to mention but a few,” Kanganja stated.
“We therefore call upon members of the public to be alert and that those who may have information that may lead to the apprehension of criminals behind these illegal acts should report to any nearest Police Station without delay. Furthermore, all those that may know people who are planning to engage in activities of sabotage should inform the police as soon as possible. The Zambia Police Service is offering a reward of K100, 000 to anyone who may have information that may lead to the apprehension of any person or persons behind these clandestine activities of cutting ZESCO pylons.”
And Kanganja said police would mount random check points to search vehicles.
“We have intensified our operations to ensure that all vital installations are safeguarded. We will also be mounting Snap Security check points in which motor vehicles will be stopped randomly and subjected to thorough searches. We therefore call upon members of the public to cooperate with the law enforcement officers whenever called upon to do so. The security peace and stability of the nation is a collective responsibility of all citizens of this great nation,” said Kanganja.
