The IG said some areas of concern have been in the traffic section, security check-points and inquiries office.
Mr Kajoba has directed divisional commanders across the country to reduce the number of traffic snap check points and security check points.
“In the interim, my command will deliberately deploy secret agents in various points of duty such as the ones alluded to, with the aim of monitoring compliance to this directive. all erring officers will meet stern action,” he said
Mr Kajoba also urged members of the public to report any officer found indulging in corrupt practices either to their supervisors or indeed other established government institutions  mandated to handle corruption related matters such as the Anti-Corruption Commission.
“Further, I appeal to members of the public to also play their role in stamping out corruption in the country by avoiding bribing officers whenever they come in conlict with the law as doing so is a crime. any member of the public who will be found wanting for any act of corruption will equally be dealt with in accordance with the provisions of the law,” he said.

He said acting on the information, police instituted through investigations which led to the apprehension of Mweshi.

Mr Kamunga said Mweshi was then taken to Ndola Teaching Hospital where it was confirmed by medical personnel that she had recently given birth.

He said on the same day the infant was retrieved with the help of the Fire Brigade and was taken to Arthur Davison Children’s Hospital but was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Mr Kamunga informed court that the postmortem conducted by Dr Volodymyr Petrenko revealed the cause of death of the child as asphyxia of the immature due to an undetermined cause.
