Kachama said this Tuesday during a send off parade of 19 police officers who will be joining the UN mission in South Sudan for peace keeping.

“Soon after the Paris and Mali attacks, I called for a meeting of the high command. We have put strategies in place to combat terrorism.

“With the help of our partners, we are ready to deal with terrorism in Malawi,” Kachama told the media.

He said Paris or Mali may seem far away but terrorism has no boundary, therefore “the Malawi police is well skilled and equipped to fight terrorism. ”

Added the police chief: “We are on alert…we don’t want terrorism to happen in Malawi.”

On Monday, President Peter Mutharika said he introduced the subject of terrorism at the just ended Commonwealth heads of state and government meeting.

He emphasised the need for states to prepare for terrorism attacks.

The US, Russia, Germany, France, Britain and other European countries are fighting the so called Islamic State, an Al Qaeda off shoot that is waging terrorism war with an aim of installing Islamic states in the world.

In Africa, Somalia is battling Al shabab while Nigeria is at war with Boko Haram terror group.

Kachama paid tribute to Malawi development partners who have trained the police officers  if Islamic State or other fanatics struck in the southern African nation in the face of increasing radicalisation .

He said Malawi Police is well quipped, well-resourced and prepared.
