Police chief Kakoma Kanganja has recommended the immediate dismissal of a police officer who was captured on camera physically and verbally assaulting a motorist.

The traffic officer, identified as Constable Brian Nkoma of Lusaka Division Traffic, is seen in a 27 seconds clip that has gone viral on social media roughing up a motorist in his own car.

Police inspector general Kakoma Kanganja who has recommended the dismissal of the erring officer says such behavior will not be tolerated in the Zambia Police Service.

In the video, the officer is seen assaulting the motorist of Indian origin while the victim takes a video of the incident.

After failing to grab the camera from the victim, the officer removes the road tax and insurance disks from the vehicle and storms off.

The officer is accused of soliciting for a bribe from the motorist.

  1. And only because of the video. Had the motorist gone to lodge a complaint it would have been ignored.
