  2. the question our defence force should be asking them selves is were are the criminals getting GUNS from,CHARITY KATANGA should be inspecting her police officers when it comes to guns,cause thieves can not get into a police office and get guns,probe the police please!!!!!!!!!!! there is no smoke without fire…

  3. Katanga do not just be a pf cadre,promote the brave police shot dead the two criminals and stop selling yourself through issuing of statements,you are not a spokes person to the police
