Speaking at Police Headquarters in Lusaka when he received a donation of hand sanitizers, hygienic liquid soap, and mealie-meal all valued at K17,000 from BIGOCA Bishop Peter Ndhlovu, the police chief called on the corporate world to continue rendering help to the force.

Meanwhile, the country is having shortages of PPEs for the security services.
