    The traffic department in all police stations will win the trophy for brining in the largest revenue rightly or wrongly

    This may sound like a good idea but it will lead the police to concentrate on petty crime to boost their crime combating numbers and look like they are defeating crime. Pa angelo goveya pakunenedwapo that’s the road to chiwembe and other slums….kodi anyamata amadikilira ma mini bus kuti atsitse katundu pa limbe depot aja, those boys who are drunk on sachets by 9am, mumati amakhala kuti akamaliza pamene paja?

    The answer is not fully to be provided by the law enforcement officers by arresting boys smoking chamba, government should create employment and provide training for these boys. Lack of continuity of government programs is so frustrating. During the 2014 campaign, Chakwera spoke about Nationalising core government goals so that regardless of who is in power, they should build their plans around those programs. When JB was in government, Chihana as sports and youth minister talked about re opening MYP bases for training of young people zintchito zamanja. The woman (JB) may have been a thief and uneducated but some of her ideas made sense. Government should get tough on crime yes, but get tougher on the causes of crime. Youth Unemployment is the main cause of crime. Deal with that!

  5. Political Analyst says:

    great initiative in the short I would suggest a major reform in the treatment of police officers, e.g increased base salaries, improved housing and health care. This things will motivated our police force in the long run. We expect so much from our police force yet we give them so little.

  6. Issa Kabudula says:

    Dr. Kainja this is the mind of men of Malawi we are looking for, for those of us who in dispute of the idea of the trophy money is less bring more money in the trophy, let us avoid critics, and add on other people ideas.
    We need responsible Malawians – osamangokhalila kutsutsa (opposition desk) we need to be proactive and resourceful – this man Mr kainja deserves a congratulatory token for the innovative idea.
    I would like also to see the hospital managers, the army, the teachers and the many government official, councillors and members of parliament to adopt the idea of trophy after hard work.

  7. Hendrina Maseko says:

    Bravo Dr Kainja. Innovative and visionary. The police service need to be motivated to yield high performance. Partner with the community and increase awareness. Community policing should be at the helm and think of conducting trainings to community neighbourhood watch security groups etc etc. keep up the good work.
    Pple this is a good initiative and don’t judge Kainja’s performance with his social life. Mwina inunso ndiye onyenga kwambiri kuposa iyeyo..

  12. Isaac says:

    You are doing it right Mr. You deserve a credit. Do not be discouraged by people whose business is judging others they can’t see goodness for its own sake. For them what matters is the doer, bring him/ her down.

  18. zachilendo says:

    it will jot last. the initiative will only subject junior officers to be exproited by seniors. u cant imagine a police officer boarding an alpha securicor at the back of an open vehicle. lets assume an accident occurs who will compesate such an officer? its a shame really that u pipo dont have crues of how to reduce crime.
