Message to Father Chewe Mukosa Regarding Police Call-Out


April 7, 2024-The Zambia Police Service issues this message to Father Chewe Mukosa, in response to the recent call-out issued to him by the Copperbelt Division.
We urge him not to report to the Copperbelt Division as per the call-out issued to him. After reassessment of the situation, it has been determined that there is no need for his immediate appearance or involvement in any ongoing investigations or inquiries.

Father Mukosa was summoned by the police to provide a statement regarding remarks made during a religious gathering, which were deemed to potentially constitute hate speech.

The Zambia Police Service wishes to remind the public that we have a legal mandate to investigate all forms of criminal activity, regardless of where they occur. It is imperative for all individuals to cooperate with law enforcement agencies in such matters.

We urge the public to uphold the principles of lawfulness and respect for one another as they go about their daily activities. Hate speech and any form of incitement to violence have no place in our society, and those found culpable will be held accountable under the law.

This decision has been made after careful consideration and in the best interest of all parties involved. Should there be any further developments or if his cooperation is required in the future, he will be duly informed.

We appreciate his cooperation and compliance with this directive. Together, we can continue to uphold peace and security within our country.
