Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja has ordered the immediate dismissal of a drunk officer whose video has gone viral on social media.
In the less 50 seconds video, the officer who is yet to be identified is seen in a drunken stupor struggling to stand let alone walk seeking help in slurred speech.
Speaking during the handover of 50 housing units for police officers at Mazabuka Police Station on Saturday, Kanganja said the officer in the video must be fired with immediate effect, reports Byta FM.
However, Kanganja did not disclose whether the Police command had identified the the drunk police officer.
Kanganja further directed all regional commanders to deal with indiscipline police officers.
He said it was worrying that officers who were supposed to be enforcers of law were the ones exhibiting high levels of indiscipline.
Kanganja also warned police officers against engaging in politics in the quest for positions from the opposition.
