Mr Kanganja was speaking during the integration of the Zambia Police Service on the Government Service Bus in Kabwe.

He urged all political players to conduct issue-based campaigns and desist from any form of violence.

“I wish to urge all political players to conduct issue-based campaigns and deceased from any form of violence as will be directed by the public order act to deal with this situation, however, let there be peace before, during and after the elections, ” he said.
Mr Kanganya said the dream of the Zambia Police Service to provide online service was being realised through the launch of the Government Service Bus.
