MTN Zambia has donated furniture worth K28,000 to the Zambian Police Service.
The donation included office chairs, drawers, tables, filing trays, cabinet tables and a boardroom table.
Home Affairs deputy minister Colonel Panji Kaunda received the items in Lusaka on Friday.
MTN Zambia chief marketing officer Clement Asante said the public must support their local police as it was the only way to help the service provide quality services.
Mr Ansante said MTN Zambia respected the efforts put in by the police command in ensuring security in the country despite their numerous challenges.
“MTN Zambia was inspired to note that the minister and the police command are determined to enhance service delivery by the Zambia Police.
“During a tour of police stations, the Minister of Home Affairs (Davis Mwila) highlighted some of the challenges faced at some police stations. One of the challenges was insufficient furniture to cater for both the public and the police officers.
“While we are sure that a plan is in place to address these challenges, we felt it is imperative for us to complement these efforts by donating furniture,” Mr Asante said.
This is according to a statement issued by MTN Communications and corporate social investment specialist Eugene Phiri.
