Police abusing Public Order Act

The shooting incident involving a golfer by Zambia Police has taken a twist with the officer involved being arrested for murder.

Eastern Province Deputy Police Commissioner Geoffrey Kunda confirmed that the police officer has been arrested and charged with murder.

A golfer identified as James Bwalya Chishimba from Mbala ZAF was on Tuesday reported to have been hit by a stray bullet which hit him from his back and came out from his stomach.

Meanwhile Chipata Golf Club Captain Edward Phiri has expressed concern towards the manner in which police have handled the matter.
He says that when cleaning the body of Mr. Chishimba, they discovered details, which were not disclosed by police.
Mr Phiri noted with sadness that the police service who are supposed to protect the public were trying to conceal the truth behind the shooting incident.
