Every payment to police should be receipted, orders Munganga-Chanda

THE Zambia Police says all payments for finable offences must be receipted with a government gazetted receipt for increased transparency.

Police spokesperson Charity Munganga-Chanda said the money that is paid to the police should not go into officers' pockets. She said it was worrying that there was a lot of corruption between the public and the police officers.

"Every payment that is made at the police station has to be receipted. In an event that a person has made a payment to any police officer and they are not issued with a receipt, they should report such an officer or the officer-in-charge of that particular police station or post," Munganga-Chanda said.

She said money paid for various offences by members of the public to the police needed to go to the treasury.

"That money is not for individuals; it should not go to individual pockets, it's government money. If police officers in these stations have numbers or names on their shirts, what they can do is, let them record the number. It helps us to identify that particular officer," said Munganga-Chanda.
