The Zambia Police high Command has directed the transfer of over 200 officers across the country from the traffic section to general duties with immediate effect.
The affected officers include 30 at Service Head quarters, 39 at Lusaka Division and 14 in Central Province. Others are 42 from the Ndola Traffic section on the Copperbelt Province while 39 are from Kitwe. The transfers have also affected 18 traffic officers from Luanshya district, nine from Chingola, six from Mufulira, five from Chililabombwe district and seven from Muchinga Province among others.
“There has been pressure within the police command to clean up the system following numerous cases involving traffic officers around the country. Those scandals have dented the image of the Police Service. If you recall, when those other officers were found to be collecting bribes from motorists in Matero (Lusaka), there was a public outcry. So the police command has made a decision to re-deploy a number of traffic officers to general duties,” said a police source who sought anonymity.
The names, as contained in a notification addressed to all Police Commissioners are as follows:
