Deputy Malawi police chief shame: Hides behind army soldiers during HRDC demos

The picture you are seeing is real. This is the whole Deputy Inspector General of Police John Nyondo ‘hiding’ behind some Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldiers during demonstrations in Lilongwe.

Nyondo hides behind army soldiers

Instead of providing ‘internal’ security as is expected of him, Nyondo here confirms that Police have failed their job of protecting citizens and offering them security as stipulated by law.

MDF mandate is to protect the sovereignty of the country from outside forces while the dear mighty Malawi Police Service are mandated to offer internal security.

But Nyondo, being the second powerful man in the Malawi Police Service decided to abandon his job which Malawians pay him handsomely for and decided to hide behind army soldiers.

A top security expert said in an interview with Nyasa Times that Nyondo has shamed himself and the entire Malawi Police Service with his act.

“This is shameful and embarrassing. If the man who is mandated by law to protect us is hiding behind Malawi Defence Force soldiers, what is he implying? That police are not capable to handle internal security?” wondered the expert.

“We cannot let the Army handle our internal security, its dangerous. There are reasons why Malawi Defence  Force protect the sovereignty of the country and not police. I am expecting to see Nyondo resigning by tomorrow because this is a no no for a Police Chief like him,” he added.

Several police officers we spoke to said they were embarrassed by Nyondo and his actions does not inspire confidence.

“This is embarrassing! Now how do junior officers behave when they see the Army? This is a big scandal of all time,” said a police officer who did not want to be named.

Nyondo refused to comment when contacted about the embarrassing picture.

That is exactly the truth Malawi Police has sold its powers and authority to corruption blind loyalty and politics, they allowed stupid cadets led by Dausi to operate using their uniform and weapons as a result this has made people to lose trust in them. They deserve more pain than this. No salary increamet this year coz they do not work at all. What they know is corruption receiving bribes, and raping innoncent women and men. They are also good sexual scandals no wonder they are number two after prostitutes on HIV positive guys in this country. I hate police

APM akundiyamwa shaft 🍆👅

Lots of cadets in the comments. Akumva PAINNNNNNN😬

This is not newsworthy and both the writer and the editor who allowed this to be posted can do better than this. If you think of if, I do not think he was really hiding. He was probably standing there under instruction because the demonstrations were against the Malawi Police Service. We know how unreasonable people can get with these demonstrations. The Military probably chose to shield him while he was awaiting HRDC leaders who were coming with a petition. No shame in that, really.

police have chosen to reduce themselves by being partisan to DPP party and that they chose to take orders from the party who to investigate or not, and also to torture those who are against the party the police are being used for that. That is why police are involved in killings of albinos sent by people in politics especially DPP

You’re misleading people. Police does not work for any party. They serve all Malawians without discrimination. You and you’re DPP has infiltrated the police to the extent that the police is no longer abale anthu as we used to sing phrases through the apolisi aja ndi abale athu song
