Rotate traffic cops, orders Kampyongo

MINISTER of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo has directed the Zambia Police Service to immediately start regular rotation and transfer of officers from general duties to traffic.
Mr Kampyongo said he has received complaints from members of the public about the conduct of some officers, especially those from the traffic section.
He said at a press briefing yesterday that the rotation will stop officers from overstaying in a particular section and becoming too familiar with members of the public.
“It is evident that some traffic officers are abusing check-points and road blocks. This state of affairs cannot be condoned, that is why we have decided to re-assess how the officers operate,” he said.
