Mtekama is a well known no nonsense Police Officer. He needs to be commended.

Akanakhalapo 20 okhala ngati uyu dziko likanakhala bwino..ndithu.

Ambilasile Mwenye

This Mtekama guy needs to be promoted to full Commissioner. He is a policeman who is passionate about his job. He is also the guy who caught Tanzania spies who were trying to spy on us at Kayelekera mine. Keep it up Bob. Sunga khosi mkanda oyera udzavala one day.


President Saulosi Chilima. Inspector General Bob Mtekama. Army General John Msonthi. Minister of Finance Tom Mpinganjira. Minister of works Mwenifumbo. Minister of Agriculture Chief Kaomba. ……….. 2019. You can’t go wrong

afana phandama

A Ntekama ndi akuluakulu siamasewera ayi,aduleni zokodzera amphyotowo.


Bob Ntekama is a cop ndi mtunda wina uwu, sizinazi. Late Macholowe analibe naye mau mkulu ameneyi


These people do get pistols(guns) from South Africa where they are locally purchased,upon coming in Malawi they start terrorising/threatening innocent Malawians.I wish they should be given life sentence in prison so that who would be should learn from that


Bwana wamkulu Mtekama

Mtekama for IG

it sounds funny, a senior police officer has to come all the way from Lilongwe to deal with these petty criminals in Blantyre. What were all these men in uniform in Blantyre doing ? Malawi Police need serious reform from top all the way to the bottom


4 people owning a single pistol?And without ammunition? Malawians we are so poor, we can’t even be good at anything, not even robbery


So you want them to be fully equipped and terrorise citizens?
