Uphold discipline, Lungu urges cops

HOME AFFAIRS minister Edgar Lungu has elevated all instructors in police training colleges to the next rank.

During a pass-out parade for 599 police officers at Lusaka’s Lilayi College yesterday, Lungu said it was demeaning for police recruits to be instructed by fellow constables.

“I would also want to address this anomaly in training colleges where we have allowed recruits to be instructed by constables. There is no way these officers can be instructed by their fellow constables. I am directed that all instructors in police colleges to be elevated to the next rank,” he said.

And Lungu urged graduating officers to uphold discipline and perform their duties diligently.
