Police in Chipata have instituted Investigations into the harassment of a journalist by police officers during this year’s Nc’wala traditional ceremony.

Eastern Province Police Commissioner Luckson Sakala confirmed receiving a complaint lodged by Chipata Press Club demanding for an apology over the harassment of a journalist on February 24.

Mr. Sakala said his office has involved members of the public who were present when the incident happened.

He said that so far, it has been discovered that the journalist in question was not from Chipata district, but from Lusaka.

Mr. Sakala noted that the officer involved is still unknown, because there were other officers who came from Lusaka for security reinforcement.
