Civil society groups have ganged up to press for the creation of an Independent Police Complaints Commission.
The civil society leaders say there is need for the commission because of increasing incidents of police brutality.
Centre for Human Rights and Rehabilitation (CHRR) executive director Timothy Mtambo said there was need for such a body where people can go when they feel hurt by police.
“Incidents of mob justice are as a result of people not having confidence in police. The commission can help give solutions,” he said.
As of now, it is difficult to report police abuse to higher authorities because chances are the authorities might not act on.
Police publicist Nicholas Gondwa refused to comment on the issue.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
