Criminals rob man outside Manda Hill police station as scared Police officers hide

There was drama at Manda Hill police post this morning when criminals robbed a man of an undisclosed amount of money after firing shots to scare police officers.

The criminals were apparently trailing the unidentified man on Manchinchi Road.
The man then drove to the police station hoping to get protection from the law enforcement officers.
When he parked his vehicle there and locked himself in, the daring gang followed him.
According to newspaper and talk-time vendors operating from the Manda Hill traffic lights, one of the criminals fired two shots on the wall of the police station and stood by the door, warning the police officers not to dare come out. A check found the gun shots visible on the recently painted wall.
The criminals then got an axe and smashed the rear window of the car where their captive was and got away with a trunk containing an undisclosed amount of money.
A crowd that gathered at the police station mocked the police officers for running away instead of challenging the criminals and enforcing the law. Some of them were heard wondering what it meant when criminals have the freedom to stage robberies at police stations.
The vendors at the traffic lights said initially  thought the criminals were police officers chasing a criminal, until they saw them get the trunk and sped off in a Corolla.
Manda Hill police officers are notoriously corrupt and spend a larger part of their day sniffing for traffic offenders from whom they extort illegal fines.

    The police in Zambia DO NOT get any Risk Allowance and are poorly equipped. How does one expect anything good to come out of them under circumstances that armed robberies present? Mind you, they also have families to take care of… I think the officer just did what every reasonable person would do.

    Sole william. So this happened! If the POlice did not connive with the Robbers then they are incompetent. Both result into officer being fired.

      it’s “money police” only interested in making money from motorists the IG and her minions have failed us, how can you have a police post exclusively for traffic officers, some one is benefiting from these proceeds of corruption. is it the officer-in-charge or commissioner or DTO these people should be made to account for what transpired at manda hill

    Those officers are cowards and they can be chanrged fo act of cowardise or failing to excute their duties. If ku UN we were not scared to die under fire what of in yo own country. Officers mwatusebanya but suspensions are eligible for you corwads.

    You pipo are not fair. Did u want us to be killed over money that is not ours. We joined the police force to make a living and not die. Am not ashamed that i hide under the counter becuase bullets don’t know “Boma”. we have a target to make every day that’s why we mount road blocks coz its possible to make KR10,000 before knock off. Dont say we dont work when we stop students rioting and UPND holding rallies. Leave us alone. These are benefits being Police.

    Very Strange. If POLICE paid by TAX payers fail to protect a citizens who runs to them, then why should we continue paying them. I would like the Inspector General of Police to fire them or indeed demote them to Office Assistants so that they can start carrying files because they are not fit to be police officers. It takes courage to be a police officer.Those which chicken hearts should not join the police service because criminals will be urinating on them at will.

    The robbers, the man and the police colluded. It
    was a well planned move so that the owners of the money dont question the robbery. Full stop.

    Iwe, wilanda@pf police. Say some individuals are not serious with work coz, among these policemen, some are there for work i tell u. At least bus drivers who dont acknowledge traffick sometimes are dealt with hence preventing accidents Anyway, ‘mwana utavwi utukizya nyina,’ so is a tonga proverb. One roteen nut makes the others to taste as if they are rotten.
