Dr. Mumba has joined people peddling unverified information through social media, police say

Published

POLICE Spokesperson Esther Katongo says insinuations by MMD president Dr Nevers Mumba that and some members of the public that police officers in Kasama helplessly watched cadres damaging a UPND motor vehicle is not true.

Katongo said contrary to what Dr Mumba has insinuated, there were no police officers in the vicinity where the fracas happened except for an officer who was performing guard duties at a nearby Bank.

She said the officer whom some people were referring to in the video was the one who was guarding the Bank and another vehicle which was passing by with only one officer who did not know what was happening at shoprite.

“The officer at the Bank could not leave the Bank , it being a sensitive vital institution, he instead communicated the information to command in the area and officers were dispatched and managed to apprehend two suspects,” Katongo said in a statement.

Katongo said officers immediately communicated to the public through various media institutions what had transpired on the ground on the material day.

She said it is surprising that some people have decided to move on with propaganda.

“It is disappointing that Dr. Mumba has also decided to throw his weight behind people peddling unverified information through social media without him seeking verification on what had transpired,” she said.

And Katongo said the Zambia Police is determined to providing quality service to members of community even in times of criticism.
