Home affairs minister Stephen Kampyongo says his ministry is aware of reports of police officers being cited for engaging themselves in crime and corruption activities.
Mr Kampyongo said police officers are human beings like any other citizens who should face the law when they engage in criminal activities.
He emphasized that there was no segregation in the enforcement of the law and being law enforcers does not make them above the law.
Mr Kampyongo further appealed to parliamentarians to break political barriers and engage the youths in their constituencies in productive activities.
He said this in reaction to Nalikwanda MP professor Geoffrey Lungwangwa who wanted to know what government was doing about the challenges of gangs.
Professor Lungwangwa said the gangs were not only on the Copperbelt but also in Western province where a gang called dark city was terrorizing people in the area.
Meanwhile Mr Kampyongo has advised professor Lungwangwa to engage the youths in western province in the cashew nut program which he said was well funded in order to help youths be productive.
Mr Kampyongo has further advised youths to refrain from forming gangs and terrorise people but take advantage of the many schools and universities being built across the country.
