President HAKAINDE HICHILEMA has called on political leaders to be responsible and practice decent politics.
President HICHILEMA says the law does not look at positions people hold in political parties but deals with all law breakers.
Speaking when he handed over 156 Toyota Land Cruiser vehicles to all the Constituencies across the country in Lusaka today, the President said politicians have no immunity from prosecution hence they need to be responsible.
President HICHILEMA also directed the Police to respond to calls for security in communities.
He said Police officers no longer have an excuse of not having transport whenever they are called upon to respond to a call for manned Police presence in communities.
President HICHILEMA said the vehicles, which have been bought under the 2023 Constituency Development Funds -CDF, will enhance security across the country to allow citizens go on with their daily business.
The President also directed Inspector General of Police GRAPHEL MUSAMBA to ensure that the vehicles provide security for all.
President HICHILEMA said government believes in decentralization and that this is why it bought vehicles for all constituencies at once.
The President also revealed that he will hand over 156 Ambulances for all constituencies countrywide next year.
And Local Government and Rural Development Minister GARY NKOMBO disclosed that five point three billion kwacha was released for the purchase of the 156 Police vehicles.
Meanwhile, Kanchibiya PF Member of Parliament SUNDAY CHANDA thanked President HICHILEMA for making the decentralization policy a reality by buying Police vehicles for all constituencies.
Mr. CHANDA said the vehicles will help provide security in the constituencies.
