IG Lot Dzonzi resigned and has since been appointed deputy ambassador to the United Nations.

Mutharika announced Kanyama’s appointment during  a media briefing at Sanjika Palace on Saturday.

Kanyama was until his appointment deputy inspector general.

He will be deputized by Rodney Jose.

Jose was police commissioner at Mtakataka.

Dzonzi told the press that his last five months in office had been less hectic comparing to the past two years he has been leading the law enforcement unit.

“I believe other people will come in and serve the country even better,” he said.

His resignation comes at the time when the nation faces security lapses with residences of top government officials including Vice President Saulos Chilima and Minister of Mines and Energy Atupele Muluzi invaded by thieves.

Kanyama said he was excited at the position and warned criminals that the honeymoon was over.

“To criminals, your days are numbered. We are going to come after you,” he warned.

Mutharika reiterated his pledge to buy 100 vehicles for the police to ensure that the law enforcers have enough vehicles

God bless you Lot Dzonzi. You restored the good relationship between the police and the civillians which was broken during Bingu’s error. You are a proffesional, a believer and a servant of the people. We hope you will even evangelize the UN.
