Police hunt for officer who resigned

 

19TH JULY, 2020 – In view of the video circulating on social media depicting Sergeant Jeyson Chipepo, Police in Muchinga Province have been looking for the said officer after being absent from duty for a long time which is against section 26 (d) of the Zambia Police Act cap 107.

The officer last reported on duty on 02nd February, 2020 and Police have not yet received any communication from him on his resignation.

According to the police act, Desertion is an offence committed by police officers who abscond from duty for a stipulated period of time and this is a matter triable by the Criminal Courts of Law.

    Leave this officer alone.what are you afraid of ba zp? I am sure you have been instructed from above to arrest him before he says what he knows

    Arrest Gassers not the apparently innocent police officer 2 weeks ago

    To me this officer does not appear to be a criminal, as he has killed no one.

    How come the police hv never been swift about who killed 53 of our citizens through Gassing?
