    • Indigo Tryol you PF criminal why didn’t you sue the Zambia Police for pointing a toy gun at you iwe Chikala? Your comments are stinking and laced with poisonous hatred against HH.

      • Iwe Bob Mpombo these guys are too corrupt. Why are you supporting rubbish? You think voters are stupid?

        Don’t worry, all these monies will be claimed back after 2026 if we elect a real leader.

    • Ba Indigo, there is no looting here. This is a straight forward case, just like Mrs. Mumbi Phiri’s case.

      The Police Force (PF), during Mr. Lungu’s reign had no qualms shooting people at the slightest excuse. The record is there. Mapenzi Chibulo, Nsama Nsama, the young school boy Mugala and others.

      I hope the gentleman responsible will be punished. He is not fit to be a police officer. The perpetrators of these injustices must be personally held to account.

  1. Compansation has been going on for a while now.For me there is a challenge I see here.How was that lump sum of money arrived at ? What is being done to deter the same occurrence in future in the country ? What action has been executed against the culprit Police Officer ?Focus should not be one way traffic but also to strive to prevent repetition.
