Female officer fired from Malawi Police over leaked nude photos

Malawi Police Service (MPS) has fired from the service officer Esther Chiundiza following the leakage of her nude photos that made rounds on social media.

Scandalous porn cop: Constable Chionjeza fired

The dismissal is with effect from 29th March, 2017.

The police have confirmed the dismissal of Chiundiza (service rank number K4026) who reportedly graduated from Limbe Police Training School last year and was stationed at Chileka police, Blantyre.

“We can confirm that she (Esther Chiundiza) has been dismissed from Malawi Police Service,” said National Police Public Relations Officer, James Kadadzera.

And according to a memo signed by MPS’s Director of Human Resource Management, Joseph Chambuluka, Chiundiza has been fired following the resolution of internal disciplinary hearing on the charge of Conduct to Prejudice of Good Order and Discipline contrary to Section 52 (1) of the Police Act.

She has since been ordered to surrender all property to avoid facing criminal allegations.

Chiundiza early last month caused a social media stir following a leakage of her nude photos taken in a room suspected to be at a Police Training School (PTS).

It is alleged that she shared the pictures with her unconfirmed secret lover who unfortunately was later caught in possession of the pictures by his matrimonial wife.

Honestly speaking the police Human resource office has goofed in dealing with the issue or to say the least has unlawfully fired young police officer on the ground that she never intended to post the pictures on the social media but unfortunately someone else did out of anger. Otherwise I see her innocent and if anything if she seeks redress of the case the police service will end up paying heavily for such unfair dismissal in as far labor laws are concerned. Unless the police human resource does claim that has nothing to do with the labors laws.

kaya…but i dont think this girl committed any offence It was someone who leaked her photos hence that someone should be punished. Additionally the one in possession of such photos should face the disciplinary action.

Dangerous When provoked

Unfair dismissal


She must not be dismissed at all cost she is not wrong at all to warrant dismissal


I share the same thought

I believe this is a human right issue. Reigning paramount is the right to privacy. Obviously one commits no wrong by being nude within the confines of what we consder to be the area of our privacy. Some sleep whilst nude bu certaily all of us bath completely naked. I believe the mere fact that a picture is taken whilst nude cannot and ought not in its own be considered a wrong to warrant punishment. In my view the he intention of doing so must be analyzed first. Is it for sale or intended for publication to a wider community.… Read more »

point of correction – the offence alleged to have been committed falls under section39(37) of the police Act (Cap. 13:01 of the Laws of Malawi and not not Section 52(1) as reported. S52(1) does not exist.

I have no reason to doubt that the Director of HR informed Esther of her right to appeal to the Minister within 7 days. Taking the argument further I laso find fault in the police discussing matters of employment contract in public. I wonder what woud have happened if all employers would be going to town publicizing each and evey dismissal.
