“Our investigation has revealed that such an incident did not occur, and therefore, no disciplinary action has been taken against any officers in connection with this matter,” he said.

Hamoonga urged the public and media outlets to verify information before disseminating it to avoid causing panic and confusion.

“Even the typo errors can show that the statement was done in a hurry by a person with ill motives with such mistakes as ‘commandi’ instead of Command,” he said.

He further pointed out that Zambia Police Service had no Public Relations Officer with the name ‘Rea Hamoonga,” he added.
