Kanyama: New Police chief

IG Lot Dzonzi resigned and has since been appointed deputy ambassador to the United Nations.

Mutharika announced Kanyama’s appointment during  a media briefing at Sanjika Palace on Saturday.

Kanyama was until his appointment deputy inspector general.

He will be deputized by Rodney Jose.

Jose was police commissioner at Mtakataka.

Dzonzi told the press that his last five months in office had been less hectic comparing to the past two years he has been leading the law enforcement unit.

“I believe other people will come in and serve the country even better,” he said.

His resignation comes at the time when the nation faces security lapses with residences of top government officials including Vice President Saulos Chilima and Minister of Mines and Energy Atupele Muluzi invaded by thieves.

Kanyama said he was excited at the position and warned criminals that the honeymoon was over.

“To criminals, your days are numbered. We are going to come after you,” he warned.

Mutharika reiterated his pledge to buy 100 vehicles for the police to ensure that the law enforcers have enough vehicles

    God bless you Lot Dzonzi. You restored the good relationship between the police and the civillians which was broken during Bingu’s error. You are a proffesional, a believer and a servant of the people. We hope you will even evangelize the UN.

    WELCOME THE NEW IG, WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST AND WE SHALL CORPORATE WITH YOU.
    THOUGH ALL AREAS IN LILONGWE ARE UNDER SIEGE OF CRIMINALS, AREA 25C IS THE WORST. IF THE SWEEP AWAY EXERCISE CUD START FROM THERE, IMAGINE HOUSES ARE BROKEN INTO EVERYDAY REPEATEDTHE FOLLOWING DAY, YET KANENGO POLICE IS A STONE THROW FROM THIS AREA. DAUGHTERS, OUR WIVES BEING FUCKED IN OUR PRESENCE.

    Jose! Payback time for killing Robert Chasowa kkkklklkkkkkkkkk

  18. CHEWA FEDERAL FRONT says:

    Listening to Mr L. Dzonzi one would have been surprised to observe that the outgoing IG was not bitter at that press conference; in fact he was jovial.
    It really helps to put God in everything we do; I’m inspired, motivated to change my life.
    Even so, a move from the dusty LLs to NYC is a real BLESSING for this man of God who has served his nation with dedication.

  19. Nyangutela says:

    congratulations Our new IG.

  20. Newx ichocho says:

  22. KING SOLOMONS WISDOM says:

    THE BLOODSHED OF INNOCENT SOULS KILLED ON JULY 20 IS LIKELY TO WORK AGAINST AGAINST THE MURDERERS.WAS THIS KAYAMA IN MZUZU AT THAT TIME?

  23. Wokwiya says:

    All the best Ksnyama but am skepticcal with your declaration that honeymooon for criminals is over. is it over simply because you are now IG? I believe u had time to demonstrate that as DIG Operations but as the saxing goes the proof of the pudding is the eating. Dont also just concentrate on criminals only. Also ensure that all money collected by traffic police goes into acct no,1 zidzikachita kudyedwa kumeneko. All the best.

  24. Zidura Ntengo Undigwere says:

    Mr. Dzonzi should now be able to carry his mini-bible in the open, at the U.N. And a new chapter opens in the history of Malawi Police.
    Kanyama seems like a no no-sense type of police. One that is not afraid of fire arms, or their legitimate uses. He has not even personal respect for armed criminals: in fact, he loathes them. Turning most of the flotsam in the MPS into serious workers is a herculean assignment; but if anyone is to it, that is Kanyama, baasi.
    His threats to criminals could not be more timely. And he’s not addled, unlike his predecessor. Zigawenga zayamba kunjenjemera sopano!

  25. Mafiloe says:

    Zabwino zonse bwana Dzonzi kapitilizeni ntchito yanu yabwino

  26. Ezekiel says:

    Ndinaziwa this guy kuyichitsa ku Mzuzu kuzakhala wachiwiri kwa IG ayi Zabwino zonse Koma apolisinu Chenjerani enanu ntchito itha ndinu anakugwirani muta lowetsa masomalia muta gwiritsa galimoto zanu zomwe.

  27. Apule says:

    Apule, zikomo kwambiri pamene mwalamula…koma chonde tisamachite zinthu zikathina! Ndipo Bible imanena kuti tipereke kwa Ceasar za Ceasar ndipo kwa mulungu za mulungu. There is no way we can give Ceasar what is meant for God of course the other way is true. There is no reverse causation. What I mean is that you are treating Government as if it is a Church…letting criminals go scott free. When it comes to them, there is no two ways about it. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. There is nothing wrong with what you have declared. You have just asked the Police to give what Ceasar needs. That is how the world works.

    I also want to personally direct you to what Lutepo has just finally realized. For the crimes of a few, Malawians are suffering. What Lutepo has just confessed should have been Government long time back. Look at what is happening. Even you being forced to go down a live podium to ask for help when they the Donors have told you what you need to do. And what do you do, you let the very same accused hold the critical positions that were involved in Cashgate. Why is the Reserve Bank Governor still the Governor up to now? Why is the MERA Legal Director still holding his position? Why is Tukula still holding his position? Our system is broken Mr. President and what you should have done is if it is about our weak laws, you would have immediately asked parliament to review the laws and pass them so that we castrate every cashgate facilitator. You are a Constitutional Lawyer for crying out loud!!! And unfortunately it seems you have been indoctrinated by your tribe again as your brother did…and I don’t see you finishing your term in good faith. As the Devil says – Those who are lust, turn to dust. Those born in sin…come on in!

  28. Bonzing Master says:

    All the best Mr Dzonzi, God bless u more.

  29. Odala Tili Odala says:

    On earth people dont lyk good people i think! Whats wrong with kutsegula ma chapter!

    1. Peter Mathanyula Wakuba says:

      What’s wrong is that while you’re busy opening chapters, robbers are opening doors and rapists are opening thighs.

  30. Maumau says:

  31. SPENCER GONDWE. says:

    Congrats bwana anga in 2000, as S/O Blantyre. am happy for you and you deserve it.

  32. chatonda says:

    Congratulations Mr Kanyama, You demonstrated good leadership before and during and after the elections. You demonstrated balanced protection of all political leaders in the North then.
    Now, my fried, you have assumed the rrole when the security in the country has gone to the dogs, My plea with you is to be vigilant and combat crime with a force and not treating criminals with kid gloves. They must know that people deserve to be peaceful in their homes, on the road and their businesses.
    Mr.Kanyama, it is possible. Shoot to kill is the answer now because we have been linient too much. How can we allow this to happen. To the DPP government, please appoint people who can perform like Kanyama. He is a PMF COMBATANT and he should be given a change to work without interference. Give him the support he needs.

    Good luck Kanyama.

  33. obaba says:

    Criminals back in power. Forget of ever getting to the tail of Chasowa case with Jose as Deputy IG

  34. Mafikizolo says:

    Go well Lottie Dzonzi , the man who chose a wrong profession . Policing was never your calling . During your tenure as IG, the Malawi Police Service was like a pack of leopards being led by a sheep . As a result, the country suffered .

  35. Patriot says:

    A man of integrity.

  38. Angozo says:

    Kodi eeetiii the five months he has been in office under the leadership of APM has been less hectic, sindimadziwztu.

    1. Peter Mathanyula Wakuba says:

      The last 5 months have been less hectic coz he was literally doing nothing. That’s why thieves started breaking into Ministers homes.

  39. Malawianah says:

    1. Eye for an Eye says:

      He should be sent kwa Shepard bushiri, akakhale IG kumeneko. Useless man, can you imagine asking his juniors to be praying while thieves are breaking into people houses. Where is it written you need divine intervention to catch a thief? Mxxxx
