Soldiers, police inciting people against govt, says minister Kampyongo

Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo says Government is deeply saddened that soldiers and police officers also participate on ill platforms on social media contrary to their calling of a disciplined cadre of personnel.

Kampyongo said it is unfortunate that officers opt to participate on social media thereby inciting the public to rise against the government of the day.

Kampyongo said government is working with Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority (ZICTA) and other stakeholders to deal with those officers found wanting of contributing to ill social media platforms.

Kapyongo said this when he officiated at the 2017 Zambia Police Senior Officers annual ball in Lusaka.

“It has come to my attention that disgruntled Men in uniform are also participating on social media inciting members of the general public to turn against the duly elected Head of State,” he said.

He warned that stern action will be taken against soldiers and police officers inciting the pubic to rise  against the government of the day
