Speaking to the media after a tour of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Headquarters and Police General Headquarters on Wednesday where he was briefed by senior officers, Kazembe said:
I want us to look at other nations, I will not mention names, at what they do when people behave in the manner that our people sometimes behave. You will realise that Zimbabwe is not anywhere near that.

What I have realised is that our police respect the people and they are not brutal. What other people do is that they ignore the police when they try to contain the situation.
Kazembe pledged to address all the challenges the force is facing during his tenure.
Commissioner-General Godwin Matanga appraised Kazembe of the problems the police is facing which include a shortage of office and accommodation, limited budgetary allocations, shortages of stationery and uniforms, shortages of transport and fuel.
