Malawi women cops face abuses in homes, work places

Women police officers are increasingly facing abuses in their homes although they enforce such laws to other women in the society, the Nyasa Times has learnt.

The National Women Police Officers Network has swiftly come in to combat the abuses by sensitizing the officers who normally keep quiet o the matter.

National Women Police Officers Network chairperson Elizabeth Chambangata said there was need to sensitise the women police officers on their rights.

Chambangata hailed the Inspector General of Police Lexter Kachama for appointing women police officers in senior positions but said there was need for the women police officers to know their rights so that they are not abused both at home and work places.

One of the women police officers Lyness Soko said sometimes women officers themselves are to blame because they look down upon themselves.

The British Department for International Department (DFID) official Jack Roberts said there was need to remove all barriers that prevent women from getting to top positions in the police.

Malawi is yet to have a female inspector general of police.

Prince mpasakuphe,
I totally agree with you guy or girl. The police women are generally very rude. The always and everywhere want to be felt highly and knowledgeable. The have no respect with others as such they can and will not respect their husbands or family members. Police women are very cruel and inconsiderate to the general public. I have no grudges with them but simply saying the truth and reality. Too much mtudzu ndi mwano amayi apolisi even akazi a police (housewives) ndi chimodzimodzi khalidwe lawo. Akhala pagulu amafula akhale oyambirira pa chilichonse.

It is common knowledge that marriages in africa are founded largely on the basis of culture. Our cultural values and even the bible explictly stated that akazi inu mverani amuna anu. The challenge comes when the woman want to do policing in the house. In other words most of them fail to undress the police uniform when in homes. I personally dont think it is a question of rights but rather discipline

Candidly I have no grudge against Police women,but of course,generally,they behave impudently and irrespectifully in their places of work it is unusual to find a dignified and well mannered Police woman in Police Stations or offices.They have adopted very outlandish way of life that is beyond our culture,they look down upon their husbands especially those husbands with low income brackets.This habit seems it is worldwide,in Canada,women are .more powerful than their husbands and this many times has ended up in grave sequel.My advise is calm down and solve the dispute amicably otherwise you will end up into more troubles.In Malawi,this… Read more »
