    Well done to the police for the good job you are doing under difficult circumstances. You are putting your lives at risks in order to serve the public. Keep up the good work and I should suggest that the police should declare total war against these ruthless robbers whose aim is to steal, destroy and kill innocent hard working people. I believe that the government can do better by prioritising the jobs that needs tackling first such as security, food security, good education and good hospitals if investors are to be attracted to invest in Malawi for the good of our economy.

    What is the point in giving the serial numbers of the guns seized? They are of no interest or relevance. The same goes for giving the registration numbers of vehicles involved in road accidents. There seems to be some kind of obsession with numbers and also initials. Please confine yourself to the important and relevant details of a story.
