Speaking when receiving the donation, Commissioner of Police, George Kainja, commended the well-wishers for the kind gesture, saying this donation will go a long way in boosting security in the district because community policing is doing commendable job in curbing crime but lack equipment.

“Our community policing is meeting many challenges, this donation will greatly improve security in rural and urban areas in this district,’ said Kainja.

He also emphasized that the police is meeting several challenges which cannot be solved by hence need for the private sector to support it.

“Most of our officers are living in rented houses instead of police houses, in many districts there are few vehicles, for instance, Kasungu Police has only two cars, Dedza has one car. We are aware that government is doing something about these problems.

“We hope by December we will sing another song,” concluded Kainja.

In an interview after the function, Asian Community representative, Mirza Imitiazbeg, said they thought of donating MK670 000 and 250 reflector jackets because they noted that police are facing many problems. He therefore urged fellow businessmen to come forward and help their police.

“Let me urge the general public and fellow businessmen to help our Police so that in return, we may reduce crime rate in Malawi,” appealed Mirza.

Some of the donors are the Nigerian Community, K200 000, Ufulu Gardens, K200 000 Santa Plaza, K100 000 and Culture Club K20 000.

That’s a good move . But we should not see them mounting roadblocks after every 200 yards just begging for money , we need professional police not street beggars and they should not be getting involved into armed robberies.

Chonde chonde a Malawi apolice safunika kuvala ma reflectors akuyenera kukhala smart ndi ma uniforms awo. Are you trying to create another type of uniform apa roadblock ndi amene akufunika zimenezo.where in the world police are wearing reflecters to be reflected to who and for what purpose? Zimenezo ndi zovala za ma volontiya apa car park. Simungatengere nthawi yakhamuzu.
