Exit the IG, now for the ‘impune’ boys in Malawi Police

Something pointed out Kanyama, yes Paul, would not last. The guy had a fast mouth and a so much of a slow brain. His thought never matched his utterances.Masinga HA  HA HA

Simply put, that man needed a Patricia Kaliati in his team and not a squad of dedicated law enforcers. For a brief moment, there it was panned out into the very faces of surprised but not amused Malawians – our own version of Policy Academy, that comic spoof in America.

And we did not nearly have it capped up.

When parliament had to seat and discuss our begone police crown, it was already clear he wouldn’t make it. For starters, he had all the bad eggs out his mouth against the opposition. Worse to it, he forgot he does have adequate qualifications indeed, less that all these were about shooting wooden rifles and not from any academic walls.

The guy’s only qualifications would have been gotten in some defunct Malawi Young Pioneers or indeed Malawi Police Force training. Hi last civilian classroom could as well strike at Primary School Leaving Certificate (PSLC).

No wonder, even parliamentarian Alekeni Menyani, himself of MSCE  the highest, apart from the here and there courses he has done on paralegal comedy-eering, could say those qualified for guards duty should not work as national security bosses.

I agree, entirely.

But that is about Kanyama, who for once has been wise enough to excuse his abilities on the police job. The man may be indeed sick and diabetes is one of the king killer diseases in Malawi and beyond. The man indeed needs his rest, from force and from farce.

Only thing, thanks for the reintroduction of the ‘shoot-to-kill’ madness and police impunity – killing soldiers, arresting top soldiers, and hey – nearly attracting the army to bomb Area 30 and other trusted police hold-ups. A good riddance indeed.

But the question is, what happens to his remnants in the service? We know about the road traffic cops and the stink they love to brush onto motorists. There is one doing rounds on am motorcycle in the capital city, Lilongwe.

Hey, they call him Sokota and does his business from the Area 3 station. His nickname is Mr. MK1,000!

This is the super cop who is known for extorting ‘green leafs’ from minibus drivers. He pulls them up for wrong parking, and they all know all it will take is a MK1,000. And as if that is not enough, the man will quickly get his ‘victim’ newer passengers should he have ‘dumped’ them in the long-wait in negotiating the MK1,000 or the minibus ‘snatch’ to Area 3 station quarters.

None of his superiors can talk to Sokota, who has built a very stinky reputation around himself as the king of MK1,000s!

And that is how he is busy building houses and become a landlord. An own ‘cash-gate’ initiative.

Next has been Mkwichi who once carried sports journalist Peter Kanjere high skeeter on his shoulders, from inside Kamuzu Stadium and threw him outside. His only sin was that he did somehow not convince Mkwichi he was a journalist despite flashing his ID. Reminds me of how those blood-thirsty night patrol cops shot the soldier in Zomba.

We are told he flashed his ID and they still killed him, cold-blood. A hangover of the Kanyama short reign.

Will we see a new broom that will, of course not be as doodle as ex-top boss Lot Dzonzi. We do not even need another womanish Mary Nangwale.

Well, whatever APM decides for us as Malawians with our life and property security, may he or she be an educated, civilized, and level-headed IG.

Kanyama failed us and his leftovers like Sokota and Mkwichi require cleaning away! And they are many…

    Of course though holder of form 2 certificate Kanyama knew his job. I saluted him

    A little education is important in whatever leadership position one aspires to attain. I did not know the education backgroud of the former IG but i started seeing some traces of lack of proper judgement in him. Initailly I said it happens and may be things will straighten up with time. Now that I know that the man did not bother to upgrade his education while serving as a police officer, i can connect why there were gaps in his leadership style.

    Fools never appreciate no matter how gOod somebody might be. Kanyama was the best IG Malawi ever had. Mark my words Police has graduates but Kanyama with his MSCE whatsover knew what he was doing pa ground amapadziwa Police is about interacting with general public on the ground not sitting on swivel chair in an office ophunzira amathawa miyala uko kkkkkk. Uthenga wangawu muzaukumbuka some day ku tsogoloko.

    1. Nango wa kho says:

      I agree with you , some people are indeed fools. Kanyama willfully resigned it doesn’t matter what qualifications he is holding, let me educate you mpalana, security job is not banking job. Security officers are only told 1% and the 99% is there own initiatives kunyoza zili zonse Muzayamika liti? no wonder people like u always praise the dead. Kuyamikira mtembo nde kwanu…

  6. bertha says:

  10. andzalu says:

  11. m'Malawi says:

    I agree, this is a silly article. Inafunika m’kanyuzi ka friday kaja. Ali form chani author ameneyi? I thought Nyasa times was becoming more mature, osati tibwererenso ku izi ayi. Besides, policing is not about academic credentials.

  19. inayake says:

    This article was not though nor properly researched. The editor should be blamed. Rating 1 out 10.

  20. Weakliks says:

    Now there is an emerging smart phone recovery syndicate by police,cell phone providers. Once you report that your phone has been stolen,chances are mininal that the police will give it back. They either sell it or convert to their use. Do you wonder then why most cops are carrying good expensive phones. these are fruits of phone recovery syndicates. well go to Limbe,Blantyre Police,special officers have been deployed to look into this syndicate and they are driving pretty good cars with phone sale

  21. Jelbin mk says:

    I think Mr Matokoso must been either Sokota or Mkwichi himself how has he found this article way out of line? Or maybe he failed to buy the queen’s language that the writer has exposed brutal and corrupt cops?

  22. Bwanubo says:

    This article is bad mouthed and foul. Impolite and it sucks.

  23. chefourpence says:

    kkkkkkk this article needed Ralph Tenthani’s marking to pass in terms of style.

  24. chivwamba says:

    Traffic police!!my foot!!. Anthu amenewa achuluka kwambiri for no reason other than milk people. I guess they share that money with their bosses. The bosses know that. Even the deputy IG Kachama the tall guy at area 30 was a long time traffic cop in the south. Do u think he doesn’t know what they do????. EVERY CORNER YOU TURN THERE IS A TRAFFIC COP. NO ANY OTHER COP FOR SECURITY. No wonder I hear robbers made them lie down near Kanengo while they robbed an asian right there while they were lying down face down. No arms but white gloves stopping traffic. Malawi has become a “TRAFFIC POLICE STATE” Armed robbers cannot be scared of them after all they will just tip them handsomely and will be waived off with a smile. In Mozambique every traffic police has another armed cop around him. They also get money anyway. Wake up Kachama if that’s his correct name. Deputy IG knows what is going on at a traffic stop so well!!!!

  25. Empty prose by an empty brain .

  26. New Govt says:

    Please check your grammar Patricia Masinga! Did your editor do their job here?g …… On am motorcycle in capital city…… Eish!

  27. kyroc says:

    the article and the author are both stupid. as a journalit you would desist from writing article which are malicious. we are talking about tight national security not ya foolish mumble jumble. if indeed u had nothing to write why couldn’t u keep yaself in toilet and continue with ya farting mannerisms.next time bring gists for the wise to stomach. once again the author is a nincompoop!

  28. INU Lalirani says:

    a police mma road block umu nde mwa onjeza, eish, ndalama munaimvetsetsatu. Kucititsa manyazi mwamva!

  29. jk says:

    I hv just waisted time reading this nosense. If u hv evidence of sokota and mkwichi, u know their bosses bt I understand u, u never did civic education…if u did, u should hv known what to do…

  30. Wawa says:

    Clean up the police indeed.

  31. faith says:

    You dont want a Womanish IG ngati Nangwale??? Ndiye kuti chain? Kam’bambo kopusa iwe! Male chauvinist. You belong to an old school. If anything, check how female headed institutions do. Institutions are well managed by women than men

  32. PRECIOUS BZ says:

    The article is good, bt on the soldiers i agree. Amazitama ngati eni dziko kwambiri. Amayambananso with police on duty, kufuma kulandana mfuti, aaaaa

  33. kolani kolani says:

    Such horrible writing should not have appeared on this page. Do we have real editors at Nyasatimes? Like genuine and academically sound people who go through what people send? I wonder. I really do. Does Chiumia and his clueless boys and girls know that they are decampaigning their paper to the entire world by accepting such ‘rubbish’? The said rubbish lacks sense. Only its author (and the useless and clueless person at nyasatimes who uploaded it) knows what s/he is saying. Nonsense!

  34. “Woipa athawa yekha opanda womuthamangitsa”.
    Kanyama has dodged a slap long way before the decision is made. Just wait for Master Scandal in which no high rated Cop is immune……….’Ca$hgate’.

  35. Kanthu says:

    Nothing from this article

  36. Banda says:

    Personalised article filled with hate against Police Force. The day robbers will hit your house is the day you will need people like Kanyama.
    By the way can you remind us your readers where Police officers can get Degrees, Masters and PhD within their structures let alone in the military.

  37. BONYA says:

    Osalemba Zoti Kanyama Waononga Police Atalandira Ndalama Kwa Ma Bus Owners Kuti Achepese A Traffic Bwa? A Poice Anzake Akumudandaula Mdala Amene Uja!!!!

  38. John says:

    Ezcellent article. WAY IN LINE!! The guys in uniform think they own the law. They want the ordinarly citizens to abide by it, all the while they are using the same law to enrich themselves. Kulikonse, maphunziro ndiofunika!

  39. Chishaft says:

    If you have nothing to write just scratch yo ass brother . Can’t u talk of the many pernitent issues we are facing? Hiv, hunger, floods ,economy or about the new stadium ? Empty head dude. We have nothing to do with yo sukuta.

  40. Andrew phiri says:

    Thats a sign of harbouring a wrong perception towards our Police. Its high time Malawians shud change our mindset towards MPS. Lets contribute positively.

  41. RoyK says:

    Good one, komanso kupempha-pempha kumatikwana with these guys. If there is a course during their trg then their instructor is good at teaching shameless begging skills
