Inspector General for the Malawi Police Service (MPS) Dr Lextenn Kachama has challenged the youth and junior serving police to continue pursuing higher education.
Kachama who was recently attained a Doctorate degree in Business administration with a major in strategic management from the Columbia Commonwealth University in Lilongwe told Malawi News Agency (Mana) that everyone in the country has a chance to upgrade in their respective fields because Malawi has no age restriction as far as education is concerned, a thing which should be taken as an advantage.
“Firstly, I would like to thank God for making it possible for me to attain this Doctorate degree. To the youth and junior officers in the service, I urge you not to get satisfied with what you have achieved. I know we have some graduates in the police service and I am encouraging them to seek further qualifications,” he said.
Kachama further said: “Similarly, I also urge junior officers who are not graduates to work extra harder so that they should be able to get higher qualifications. It is integral that we continue upgrading by getting degrees, masters degrees and PHDs,” he said.
The police chief said lessons and knowledge he has acquired from the doctorate degree program will help him in bettering the MPS.
“My PHD majors in strategic management. As you know, for everything to move smoothly, be it on a personal or organizational level, you need to apply some effective and comprehensive strategies. This is exactly what I have been equipped with. And together with my fellow officers in the service, we will continue to work hand in hand to achieve the objectives of the MPS,” said Kachama.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
