APM appoints Guard Commander Mwapasa as Malawi Police deputy chief

President Peter Mutharika has appointed former presidential guard commander, Duncan Mwapasa, as Deputy Inspector General of Police Responsible for Administration.

Minister of Information, Kondwani Nankhumwa said on Thursday that the appointment “is with immediate effect.”

“Mr Mwapasa replaces Mr Lexten Kachama who was appointed as Inspector General of Police and was confirmed by Parliament in his position on Thursday, 18th February 2015,” Nankhumwa.

Another deputy inspector general of police is Rodney Jose responsible for operations.

Apart from serving President Mutharika as Guard Commander, Mwapasa also was at State House on same role during the reign of late president Bingu wa Mutharika.

He was removed from State House and posted to be Officer in Charge for Rumphi police after Bingu wa Mutharika’s death in April 2012.

Mwapasa was interdicted from Police after he was arrested together with Mutharika on treason charges.

Meanwhile, Police Southern Region has a new Commissioner, he is George Kainja (PhD).

Communication from Southern Region Police Headquarters indicate that Commissioner Kainja once served as Director of Planning and Police Reforms at the National Police headquarters.

Posachedwapa the president appointed Mr. Medi from Nkhotakota as Chief Immigration Officer. He also appounted Mr. Lextern Kachama from Lilongwe as Inspector General of Police. Why are we grumbling when he appointed Mwapasa from Zomba. By the way Duncan Mwapasa is a yao not lhomwe.


Mulakho gouvernment
Mulakho Police
Malawi will remain number most poorest country in the world.

Why are you guys so evil? So you mean anybody from South is not fit to be appointed? SHOULD ONE SUFFER BECAUSE HE IS FROM SOUTH? When Peter appoints people from centre you celebrate. By the way Mwapasa is a graduate of Chancellor College duly selected by first choice. Not ma qualification azigamba zigamba a ku Skyway, Trade Fair, Shareworld Open, ESAMI ayi. The Mwapasas I know are very intelligent people; all are highly educated. There are chartered accountants, economists and medical doctors amongst themselves. Enanu kwanu kulibe olo graduate mmodzi or even wa ku Nansawa technical or TEVETA kulibe.

Mwapasa thrives on miseche and kuipisa anzake sakhululuka komanso akazi kwambiri ameneyu.wrong choice for DIG


Good works Duncan!


mwapasa is never a tumbuka name and will ever be as such, speak truth, he is from chirazulu, learn to be objective, do u know why Malawi is the poorest country in the world???????? because it spends most of its energy analysing names of its citizens instead of analysing the poverty for its a citizens wat a shame

Mmtumbuka opusa

I thought Dinky is from Thyolo, together with Dr victor mwapasa and Evelyn Mwapasa!


Tiyeni tizingogawanapo chumachi. Amene amugwire ngati abale athu ali ku ndende aja zawo izo. Koma tiyeni tithandizane kugwetsa boma.


Civil Service Reform? Why launching it so quickly? Chilima and the entire commissioners cheated us.


Another Lhomwe
