Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja has disclosed that eleven suspects have so far being arrested in connection with the recent cases of arson and sabotage.
Mr. Kanganja says the investigations have reached an advanced stage and that any time soon, perpetrators of this ill-act will be taken to court.
Mr. Kanganja has told Journalists in Lusaka that there will be no sacred cows regardless of their political affiliation and status in society.
He says as for the Lusaka City Market fire that gutted part of the market, investigations have eliminated the possibility of an electrical fault or accidental acts as the cause of the inferno.
He has explained that according to investigations, the fire started from stand number 238/239 in the Yellow Zone of City market adding that the stand in question had no power for three days including that fateful day.
He has since directed all provincial commissioners to ensure that officers in all corners of the country are alert and proactive by ensuring increased police presence in all vulnerable areas and points.
Mr. Kanganja has warned that perpetrators of these crimes that police will deal sternly with anyone found wanting or has intentions of being involved in acts of sabotage or indeed any form of crime.
Meanwhile, the Inspector General of Police has disclosed that the police may also limit the publication of some articles through the media where people are abusing the media.
Mr. Kanganja has since implored Zambians to take keen interest by reading the Preservation of the Public Security Act Chapter 112 of the Laws of Zambia so as to avoid speculation as well as being misinformed.
