——————- The Zambia Police Service has opened Interpol offices to the public in Solwezi.
Residents are being called upon to register their imported vehicles with the local office as opposed to taking them to Interpol Ndola office which was the case in the past.
Interpol Police Officer in Charge Caroline Kafwembela told ZANIS that Interpol offices had now been decentralized and therefore there was no need for importers of vehicles to travel to Ndola for inspections and registration of their vehicles.
North Western Province Police Commissioner, Grace Chipalila confirmed that Interpol offices were now fully operational and open to the general public in Solwezi.
In another development, Policemen’s wives and female police officers today joined hands in cleaning some wards at Solwezi Urban clinic in Solwezi.
The women cleaned the children and maternity wards.
The activity was carried out in preparation for International Women’s Day-IWD which takes place every year on 8th March throughout the world.
The women also donated assorted items such as tissue papers, pads, soap, and cleaning utensils to the two wards.
The donated items were purchased from the proceeds of a fund raising walk for Police Officers recently.
Principal Nursing Officer at the Clinic, Pass Shimuunza said management was pleased and grateful for the donations as the items would help maintain hygienic standards in the clinic.
