Police in Southern province have apprehended a suspect behind the cutting down of Zesco pole in Dundumwezi- Macha area of Southern province.

And Minister of Home affairs Steven Kampyongo  has described the acts of economic sabotage alluded to by President Edgar Lungu in Southern province as not only regrettable but extremely frustrating.

 Kampyongo said it as regrettable that while government was striving to deliver development to all parts of the country, criminal elements would vandalise public infrastructure at will.

Addressing journalists in Shiwang’andu district of Muchinga province over the weekend,   Kampyongo disclosed that investigations had been instituted into the acts of criminality and government would not rest until the perpetrators of vandalism were brought to book.

“I am happy that the Police command in Southern province are doing everything possible and so far, one suspect has been apprehended and investigations have since been instituted to ensure that we get to the bottom of this matter,” said  Kampyongo.

Meanwhile, the home affairs’ Minister has announced that government remained committed to taking development to Southern province.
