Copperbelt Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has strongly warned police officers in the region to stop mounting unnecessary road blocks.


Mr. Lusambo observed that police officers in the province were in a habit of mounting unnecessary road blocks in both residential and the central business areas with about six to seven police officers at one point.


He said he does not want to see police officers mounting road blocks anyhow but instead carry out their inspections at the police check points.


ZANIS reports that the minister said this during the SUN FM phone in radio programme in Ndola.


Mr. Lusambo stated that he has received a lot of complaints from both bus and taxi drivers that they are having a hard time doing their business because of the unnecessary road blocks by police.


He has since urged the Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) to do their work by carrying out inspections and get rid of the excessive road blocks.


Mr. Lusambo observed that the two check points in Ndola are enough for police to carry out their inspections unlike disturbing people with unnecessary stops.


“There are two police check points in Ndola and these are Indeni and Itawa check points. These are enough for police to do their work. Therefore, I do not want to see police officers mounting unnecessary road blocks,” he said.
