Our police force is a mixed bag with good apples and rotten ones. Often and sadly it is the bad ones that get promoted. The merit system in the service needs to be improved. As for the rotten cabinet ministers their time will come. It might take months or years but some day they will pay for the sins they committed. History teaches us few evil ones escape justice. This DPP Caliphate will fall

I totally disagreee your comment mkanda,this is character assassination,he is one of the best detectives @ Limbs police station,I was once robbed and it was this detective Aubreva Banda who came to my rescue,unless you are a robber and he is a threat to you I can understand,otherwise to me he is good,systematic and organized,and hardworking,keep the flag of Malawi police shunning Aubreva Banda

Bring back Bingu’s “shoot to kill” for these animals. We toil for our spoils and they want to get them for free and even killing innocent souls in the process!! Well done MPS. We need to give credit where it is due and keep up the good work but do not set them free. They should rot in hell.

Thank you our police for the job well done in arresting these animals. However, I am not happy in the way our courts and police handle the issues of robberies in this country. Two days from now we will see them walking tall in our street after being granted a bail. What nonsense is this that a robber has more freedom than a victim of robbery? That’s why people have taken laws into their own hands.
