Commenting on the confirmation, UDF spokesperson on security matters in Parliament,  Lilian Patel pleaded with the police to be professional and implement reforms that aim at making the security agent people centered.

Kainja holds of a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Chancellor College and a Doctorate of Philosophy.

If Kainja worth his salt let him pursue the murder of Robert Chasowa, Usuman Imedi, undressed police woman by Ntambo thugs, beating of DPP monitors by Chimwendo Banda thugs and killing of the chair of Kabaza.

Exist Cadet Mwapasa DPP stalwart in the Police. Enter Kokoliko or Tambala Kainja MCP stalwart in Police. Nothing changes only political parties controlling the Police.
