Headlines

The Ministry of Home Affairs has clarified that the police bicycles meant for the Victim Support Unit (VSU) were a donation from the Japanese government. “The Ministry of Home Affairs wishes to refute media speculations that Government has bought one thousand bicycles at a cost of U$ 700,000 breaking the cost of one bicycle to U$ 700.00…as fictitious, malicious and meant to mislead Zambians.
The accurate information is that these bicycles were a donation by the Government of Japan to the Zambia Police Service to facilitate policing in places that cannot be accessed using motor vehicles,” Ministry public relations officer Nephas Chifuta has stated. He said Inspector General of Police Mr Kaoma Kanganja, after the donation, directed that the bicycles be distributed to all provinces under the Community Services Directorate to enable Victim Unit officers and other specialised units carry out sensitization programmes.
