Injured cop evacuated

MARJORY Moyo, the police traffic officer who was knocked down by an unlicensed driver at a road checkpoint last Saturday was yesterday evacuated to South Africa for reconstructive surgery.
Ms Moyo, who was accompanied by her mother, Mervis Mumba, and Levy Mwanawasa General Hospital medical personnel, left on board a South African Airways (SAA) flight at 13:00 hours.
Ms Moyo was seen off by her father, Handson Moyo, Government officials, traffic officers and senior police officers at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport (KKIA).
Speaking in an interview in Lusaka yesterday, Mr Moyo said he is still heart-broken after the incident in which his daughter was injured.
“When we received the news, we were heart-broken and we are still in shock. But we are grateful to Government, the people of Zambia and staff at Levy Mwanawasa General Hospital for the support,” he said.
Mr Moyo said that his daughter has been slowly recovering from the injuries sustained in the accident.
Ministry of Home Affairs spokesperson Moses Suwali said Government will enhance modern traffic policing in operations to prevent such incidents.
