New IG Kachama promises ‘revolution’: Police college to be affiliated to University of Malawi

Malawi’s newly appointed police Inspector General (IG) Lexten Kachama, has spoken of several new developments to be undertaken as part of his vision to improve professionalism among police officers which will result in improving security in the country.

Kachama: Expect a revolution for a reformed police service

Kachama: Expect a revolution for a reformed police service

Kachama, who has just been appointed to the position of IG, pending Parliamentary approval after Paul Kanyama resigned, was speaking Thursday in an exclusive interview with Lilongwe News Agency (LINA) at police headquarters in Lilongwe.

As part of his vision, he said he would like to see police officers improve in their training thereby improving security of the nation as well.

But before he talked about his vision, Kachama paid tribute to all former police chiefs before him and appreciated the contribution they made to the nation.

“I would like to see Police Training School in Zomba become affiliated to the University of Malawi so that police officers learn police science at advanced level, being awarded certificates, diplomas and degrees after successful course completion.

“That is not all, there are some officers who got employed with low educational qualifications, possibly for one problem or the other, they too must be considered, and that is why I will be discussing with management to see if our police secondary schools can factor in afternoon classes for mature entry so that these officers can upgrade,” Kachama disclosed.

He also emphasized the need for refresher courses to be conducted more often for officers to update them on new developments in security matters as criminals get more sophisticated each passing day.

On the issue of security, the new IG assured the nation of high security.

“I would like to assure the nation of Malawi that peace and security of the people is my number one priority, working together, myself as IG, my fellow officers, with the support of the general public, we can achieve total security without doubt. Security is not a one man issue, that is why all of us must be involved and join hands so that we make Malawi secure.

“Police must work within the law as they carry out their duties without fear or favour, not even thinking of  one’s skin colour, tribe or religion,  or indeed anything that separates us including whether a policeman or a civilian, in short, I insist working professionally,” warned Kachama.

He went on saying: “The law will take its course on anyone who finds themselves on the wrong side of the law, no matter who it is, as long as one breaks the law, the police will act swiftly and decisively and they will feel the pinch, but law abiding citizens who love their nation, will find us their friends.”

On the same issue of securing the nation, he said he believes the police that work with the people, the police that is friendly to people, as in so doing a lot of information is collected and law breakers are quickly brought to book.

He therefore said he will enhance the community involvement in security matters.

Fact file

Lexten Kachama is a career police officer who humbly began his career as a constable on April 2, 1979 after a course at Police Training School in Limbe. He rose through numerous ranks to the position of Deputy IG administration before being appointed IG this week.

He was born on June 30, 1958 at Chidzenje Village, Traditional Authority (TA) Kalolo in Lilongwe, and he is the first born in their family.

Kachama went to Mitundu Secondary School. He holds a diploma and an advanced diploma in human resources management and administration from the United Kingdom (UK), a degree in human resources management from Shareworld Open University, two masters degrees, one in business administration from Shareworld, and another in leadership and change from Leeds Metropolitan University, UK.

He is currently studying for his doctorate degree in strategic management with Colombia Commonwealth University.

On top of the above credentials, Kachama has gone through other short international courses in Sweden, South Africa and Zimbabwe in relation to his work.

He is married with six children, and this year they are celebrating 35 years in fruitful marriage.

During his leisure time, the IG said he likes reading books, listening to gospel music, watching TV and above all chatting with his family. – LINA

    I agree with the person above called the Disappointed. Masters from ShareWorld ? A! this is really pathetic indeed. See quite a number of good pilots in Malawi Only those studied from Kamuzu Academy speak very good and grammatically English. If you are regular flier check the English by the so called pilot these days and you can easily tell out that this is not a Malawian pilot. Boys like the Masi, Khofis spoke very good and fluent English and its sad that Malawi just let out such expertise to other countries. Pilot Mowa uli phu!!! and end up landing in trees. I don’t really know what should be done with education in our Malawi Schools. Even these lawyers ah! their English? Shall! Jesus. Schools in Malawi have completely gone down 20 feet deep. Graduate, you hear closely his/her English ah! My God! What is the problem with Ministry of Education in Malawi????? With me I prefer to differ slightly with the Disappointed above because I have not travelled much apart from School in Scotland Aberdeen, Holland, Germany, France and Belgium not including 10 African countries but spoken English in Malawian Schools is very very sad and I mean it.

  3. Disappointed says:

    Masters ya Shareword ? Or MIM ? Hede!!!!!!!!!!!! ndisukulunso zimenesi kapena ma MCDE Centres. Ha!! Mpakana kuwuza anthu ndithu. The best way Kachama should have done was just to he has Masters in bra bra bansi!!! Shareword degree????????? This is just as good as Schools in Trade fair Grounds in Blantyre.There are many journalist from trade fair and so forth and here their English kuti kodi akulankhula CHIKAPAYA KAPENA CHINGEREZI ZANZI!!! Listen to MBC a! A! a! A! a!. Schools in Malawi, even Poly,Chanco ah! BOLANINSO KAMWANA KA KAMUZU ACADEMY, I did not understand when Kamuzu said his school is Number 1 Grammar School in the African Continent, he was very true. I have travelled and you hear English ah!!!! Shareword yeni yeni ya ku Malawi Kufunisisa kukhala ndi Degree. Many people in Malawi do not know what Degree means.Nanji Masters ogo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ine ndine ntumbuka wa ku Mzimba koma Iwe 75. Why always talk about Lomwes. do you fear them or umasilira utakhala mulomwe. Please you can change your tribe and become lomwe. They say if you cannot defeat them just join them.

  5. Themba says:

    Congrats Bwana
    Mutithandize kuno ku Kanjedza to stop this 24 hour disco music from bottle stores from Mr. Chisesele’s buildings. Regulate the closing time and noise for Bottle stores.
    Thanking you in advance Bwana IG. God Bless you as you sort out human right abuses like we are facing in Kanjedza from these bottle stores who have their rights to make noise and we people have no rights to complain about this violation of our right to peaceful and noise free environment.

  6. Malume says:

    This is a good catch. Kachama is a very good gentleman.

  7. Rudolf Phiri says:

    I strongly suspect that this seat ( IG position) is being warmed up for a Lhlomwe, Duncan Mwapasa who is currently guard commander ( incharge of Presidential security) who is now commissioner of Police. To prove my point, watch out for the appointment of the next Deputy Inspector General to replace Kachama, I bet Duncan Mwapasa is taking that position.

    The trouble with people rising to those positions without never having run a region as commissioner or served as deputy commissioner is that they come to the position with little operational experience, like Mukhito did. of course Mwapasa was Officer in charge Lilongwe Police station ( which is as big as the whole of northern region or eastern region police) albeit very briefly before Bingu appointed him as guard commander.

    Check the History of the Police service, former IGs usually were people who had either headed big departments or regions…Ngwata headed SIS when it was such a major department before rising to the high office; Mr Mbedza was regional commissioner before, so was Mr Namasani, so was Lunguzi, and Chikosa, Chimwaza, Mphinji, Chirambo, Chikosa.even Dzonzi was commissioner Adminstration for a while….but people like Aironi and Mukhito whose only high position was guard commander, in charge of some 15 officers are always a disaster. Let Duncan Mwapasa go and serve as commissioner south, or central, east or North, get some experience before putting him up there. Otherwise he will just be like another Mukhito, buying hot cars stolen from south Africa, friend of car thieves .

    Give Kachama a chance to show us what he can offer his country. If you wanted wa operational experience ndiye ndi Kanyama mwathamangitsa uja. That one would have shown you amazing stuff!
    Otherwise, best of luck Mr Kachama, may the good lord guide you.

  8. IG L Kachama congratulations, and may God continue to bless you and your family.

    The idea of partnering with an institution of higher learning is the way to go, to motivate and transform the service.

    May I ask the whole country to not just criticize when you have no clue of the achievements a leader has. Why is there such JEALOUSY in a majority of us? I feel this is an area which needs to be addressed and addressed fast. It is bringing about self destruction. For those that formulate the primary school curriculum, please factor the evils of “Jealousy” in. This will create a better Malawi for tomorrow.

    HE APM, please try and minimize those within your administration who undermine, unnecessarily interfere with the internal operations of the security/ defense and other critical agencies within Malawi.

  9. Mugonapamhanya says:

    What a dull country Malawi is! People are still thinking 1960 colonial way. That is why people are using their hard earned money to buy degrees from MIM, Shareworld, Skyway, BCC etc in order to be respected yet this is money which they could wisely invest in other more meaningful projects. Even in EU countries and US a truck record is more important than academic papers. Malawians are dull. Kuphunzira si ma degree okha.

    1. Environmental scientist says:

      I agree with you.thats why I will never respect people with papers from the institutions you have mentioned useless

    2. Wailing Soul says:

      Mugonapamuhanya! Yea kuphunzira sikufika??? That’s why you say such a “truck”record>kkkkkkk I wonder if the truck record is from a Freighliner or a Hino.kkkkk Truck record shaaah!

      1. MMALAWI says:

        Timati “Track record” osati “Truck Record” ! Koma umbuli pa Malawi!

  10. Aya Ngonde says:

    congrat. I feel proud as a teacher to see one of my students rise to that position. Great men will always be known by their fear of the Lord. We still cherish ur humility ku limana and mpingo at large.

  11. Kho says:

    From Kanyama to Kachama, loooo….APM like th KA – MA names…..Koma kumenekoooo!!!!

  12. liu says:

    Police work does not need humbleness or academic decorations. remember dealing with criminals you are not supposed to be smart that is why police are given guns. granades. and tear gas because their work involves dealing with rascals not pastors. law trnsgressors and if it was not for these people do we need the police. Stop this nosense about qualifications and humbleness. we need men made of steel in the police to eliminate criminals.

  13. Makiu says:

    Two hints illegal forex dealings taking place at MCP office and Petroda fIlling Station in full view of your officer where they just come to collect bribes. Your officers are stealing recovered cell phones and selling them to Mozambique. The school issue would be used to avoid being transfered hence overstaying in stations and Guta rising people. Advise what is the progress of FMB robbery as it appears some of your officers investigating have sadenly become rich and driving good cars.

  16. Manson Bird C says:

    Thank you so much for coming,But one thing we need justice here in Malawi,two we need the rights of Malawians to be preserved,three your Guys r corrupt so corrupt,in Malawi corruption z open and nothing z been done yet.We demand excellence now,the other thing you take advantage on Malawians coz thy have foorish respect,we need to be taugh Malawians,Indians thy pay our fellow Malawians very little money like in Kasungu their Pay starts at k5000.00 while thy make a lot of money for them,thy get rich on top Malawians,Government z just watching cause thy get some thing,Malawians work-up!!!!! Refuse small money

  17. Tseketseke says:

    Congrats! Just wondering why you were not picked at advice is, in your police service and the ountry as a whole doesnt like proffesionalism when executing duties.what they need is that u shld be dancing to the tune of politicians thus be careful.gud examples are Kumbambe And Dzonzi.Your Vision Is Very Fantasti But in this country we shld pray for devine intervention.Be careful of your deputy coz he is among murder suspects.with these remarks i beg to move.

  19. Busy brains says:

    Congratulations Sir! You have said that people should work with the police in order to improve security. Good and fine!! But what I hate and find it toiling in vain is this habit by your guys who don’t assist our country in the sense that when you report something sensitive being done by these Indians, they just go there, talk to the culprit and get bak with money in his pocket. So can our country develop with this mentality? Mr IG if you come across my comment, please tell me where I can go and get assistance satisfactorily. Because I have a lot of calendastine activities being carried out by some of these Indians. NB: Please Bwana IG, stay away from these Mwenyez! They are bad people who come to you like Good Samaritan only to spoil you! Here in Lilongwe there is this mmwenye of Ocean Industries who also owns Ocean Car Hire. He is danger!!! He is involved in the cash gate but never will you hear his name mentioned in the whole saga!

  20. All the best Mr Kachama

  21. How will it be possible bwana kachama?..Ku university of Malawi kumapita okhaokha amene alibe ngongole ndi a Maneb so you want to tell us that u want your policemen who dont have full MSCEs to go to UNIMA for upgrading?..Musationongere dzina la university bwana.Just tell us that your will arrange kuti policemen will be given certificates and Diploma from Police College.

  22. George Masida Mhone says:

    Congratulations Mr. Kachama. I have known you as a humble and hard working officer since the 80s. You deserve this and continue to work hard for the good of mother Malawi. May God guide you as you carry out your new duties.

    George Masida.

  23. IKLC says:

    Malawi needs a Police force with relevance qualifications not ordinary HRM diplomas and degree on how to write memos, chair meetings ….etc.
    For example, we need professional officers who can and have taken modules in courses like
    Forensic science, evidence and investigation
    Crime science,
    Introduction to criminalistics
    Police duties and law
    National and International Policing frameworks etc. et

    In this regard, you need to upgrade your tutors at Police Training school in these areas…..

    all the best

  24. Constable says:

    Its not training,refresher course and whatever shit you are preaching here,big no bigman.

    The monthly package is too small.Tell ur political bosses the truth.The indiscipline u see or hear about is as a result of working 24/7 and inturn get the insulting 48pin.

    Be realistic and honest if u really are holding an advanced diploma in HR and Admin take a review and check where ur friends failed.

  25. man zi says:

    Police should not only focus for physical discipline but also consider forensic. There are a lot of things that need to be tackled for example you need to recruit computer wizards to counter attack cyber crime, issues dealing with drug poisoning in hospitals some proprietary die because of wrong prescriptions from the doctors the police should be able to tackle these issues.

  29. Surveillance says:

    You should also consider how u will achieve your goals in the face of poor funding to your department because some of these ambitions mentioned above need quite a lot of money.. And also prepare how you would handle the top most bosses e.g. Ministers even the president himself, who would give you orders that are against ur will and professionalism.. Remember ur position is more political.. May God be your guide throughout your tenure

    I like this guy. He is good and am sure change the police for the better. I wish our new Inspector of general of police all the best. But I before I forget, is there any police college in the north?

    1. Chinyani says:

      What for?

  32. Mwalaula mpaka IG from Lilongwe district. He will be clocking 36 years in service and will soon retire or be fired for Mlakho wa Lhomwe. The Lomwes are not happy and soon it will be Duncan Mwapasa.

    Wakwithu uyu

  36. Malindima says:

    Good qualifications! My question is: why has the Police been ineffective whilst it was equipped with such highly qualified people like you at the top? Malawians, the IG should be on probation to see if he has short term practical strategies to turn around the Police. There are many people with MBAs, Masters Degrees in Leadership but they fail to apply their knowledge to real practical situations at the places they work. So having a good qualification is good indication but not necessarily a measure to expect that candidates will perform. That is why also that there are candidates with Diplomas whilst being aggressive doers and practically formulate strategies and drive to get results!

  37. Zayambika says:

    Zabwino zonse uncle. Takunyadirani

  38. Taweni says:

    Malawi will always be a corrupt nation especially with tribalism taking centre stage.

    We need federalism so that development is decided by forks in their own regions and appointments are spread out. Otherwise some tribes will never partake in leadership assignments.

  42. Phodogoma says:

    AChewa you are fools. How can you thank God for appointing your useless Chewa Kachama, I mean a graduate of Open shareworld Correspondance. This is where most Chewas go for tertiary education while Lomwes and Tumbukas are walking in the corridor of UNIMA. Zamkutu eti. This is also where Jessie Kabwira got her first degree. Instead of thanking ALOMWE for raising up your head in the country by appointing this a corespondent graduate as IG. This is the way how Chewas get their degrees while most of Lomwe people get their degrees at UNIMA. You will see how many Lomwes will go for degrees at UNIMA through Harmonization with quota system within it. Members of Gulewamkulu you are now selfish more selfish than Nyikas.Ife a Lomwe tangokugawirani u IG chabe mwayamba kubwekera.Kukamwa kuli yasa. Mbuzi zophunzira ku share world.A Chewa ku UNIMA mumaopako chiyani. First degree ndi master yomwe pa shareworld. Tidzamva English ya ku shareworld tsiku lina. Ndiye bola ka fisi, ka kambuku, kakalulu komwe kaja kadathawa asadakanidwe Kanyama. Mwawaona a Lomwe amasova zedi. Kanyama adasova pozindikira kuti a Chewa amasangalala akhaka iwo. Nanga maphunziro muzati chiya pa Mchewa wanuyi. Muzalankhula kuti ndiwophunzira. Yayaya.

  43. mjiba says:

    Revolution, evolution, revolt or what? Reform? revolt aint a revolution. Take a leaf from Bingu (RIP) let the works of your hands speak for you, not the words of your mouth, you will have nothing on the ground to show for it at the accounting day!

  44. Titele says:

    Masters and PhD from shareworld and MiM are useless. They should not be accepted, better a diploma from Mpemba. Believe me. How can a JC teacher without an MSCE get a degree? or a nurse with poor MSCE grades get a MSc ndikumatinyanza pa town pano. Fotseki.

  51. Rudolf Phiri says:

    Congrats Mr Kachama,,
    A humble and hardworking man. someone asked about his wealth. This man has been a hard worker from way back as a junior officer. I recall when he was at Blantyre Police station in the late 90s, he was in the business of selling cooking oil in drums. He would drive to Mzuzu after knocking off and be back in BT by morning, everyday! as far back as 1998-1999, this man was doing so well he was buying cars brand new from Mandala motors, go check!
    He was a hard worker, and has always been. I am proud of this man and wish him well both during his confirmation and as he serves as the head of the Malawi Police service. May the almighty God guide you Mr Inspector General. Mukhito, hands off this man!!

    Congratulations Kachama Remember to maintain your dignity during your tenure of work.

  63. Zondiwe says:

    No. 10, Kachama’s success will come, not because he is a Chewa, but because he is being professional in his duties.
    He has shown that he likes education, that is why he has improved himself by studying here and there. He will soon be Dr Lexter Kachama.
    I am not a Chewa, but a Malawian, and I am proud that a Malawian is the IG of Police.
    Many other people have not been promoted because they belong to the ‘wrong’ tribes in our country. This attitude is hindering the potential of Malawi to develop. In a similar vein, unqualified Malawians from the ‘right’ tribes have been given huge responsibilities on a silver platter. In some cases, they fail to deliver.
    Let Malawi uphold the principles of professionalism before tribe, and God will bless us as one Nation.

  64. victim Chamkhuni Lwazazi says:

    Ok with qualification. But Mr Kachama, would you be transparent enough by allowing to be investigated on how you acculated so much wealth while serving as a senior policeman? We are talking about trucks, farms, a fleet of cars and big houses. If you don’t have them, deny this claim.

  69. Mmtumbuka opusa says:

    Mtengo wagwa! You are spot on. As long as Mukhito is at state house then the MALAWI POLICE service is still under his command.. This a very sad and unfair development. State house needs a proper Chief of Staff with good credentials academically not a form four drop out . No room for the uneducated civil servants around the president…..

  70. gogoda says:

    God has answered you KACHAMA wapondelezedwa kwambiri ndi andale chifukwa chakuti you are a CHEWA tribe but history tell its about succefull police services under chewas IGs.

  71. General Aididi says:

    Very educated yet so humble. An experienced officer that needs to be confirmed by Parliament during this February Sitting. We can not afford to wait for the next sitting of Parliament during Budget Session in order to have an IG.

    Hon Chibingu can you fast track Kachamas confirmation to next week? After all, you signed a Performance Contract and this would assist you as well in achieving your targets. You know APM sakucheza tsopano and we do not want you to be one of the early casualties come early next year.

  72. Steve Ng'omba says:

    Congratulations bwana! We wish you well as you take the leadership of the Police service

  73. me says:

    Training isnt the problem, the solution should be a swift, accountable and transparent system of justice. These police people are underpaid as a result they get bribes from criminals instead of upholding justice, which is their main duty for protecting the citizens of this country. People are fustrated with the security problem in this country which is coupled by corruption. The government should open an office that should make sure that people of justice are accountable not this lip sync service. We should not forget one of the main important riason d’etre between the people and the government,.

  74. Mmalawi weniweni says:


  75. mtengo wagwa says:

    My advice is that he should not take orders from the former IG Mukhito currently Chief of Staff at State House. He is miss leading the Police Service.
