I WOULD like to strongly dispute what MBS said in a letter in which he was reacting to Lubinda Mwangalaâ€™s complaint that police officers refused to give him a GRZ receipt for the K200 he paid them after they certified his papers.
Under normal practice, any cash transaction must have a receipt issued.
Police officers always get away with it because we do not challenge them and report them to their superiors or the Anti-Corruption Commission.
Even at check points, if an offender refuses to pay a bribe and chooses to pay the full fine, the traffic police officers issue fake receipts called â€˜admission of guilt formsâ€™.
From there, who knows if that money the officers have collected will be handed over to the courts?
And if I may ask, is this revenue or non-revenue?
Please, may the relevant authorities do something about this rampant theft of Government money and exploitation of innocent citizens by police officers?
