Malawi Police probe DPP ‘cadet’ over pistol

Armed and pose for photo opportunity: DPP cadet Noel Kaiya

Phiri, who is DPP Director of Operations or Field Marshall, was launching his  K10 million football, netball and bawo trophies when Kaiya brandished pistol in public and taking photos which have gone viral on social media.

National Police spokesperson James Kadadzera said he has seen the photo and they are investigating.

“We will investigate the issue because not everybody can have a gun in the country,” said the police spokesman.

Kadadzera said the law enforcers want to establish how the DPP ‘cadet’ got the gun.

“We want to know whether his gun is licenced under his name and why he was brandishing it in public,” he said.

Which police is going to investigate this matter? Kadadzera, you are making us sick with the word “investigating.” Have you ever done any successful investigation more especially when the crime is committed by DPP members. We lost trust in you many years ago. Right now we are totally depending on God to fight for us in His own ways as He did in the past. God will do something on our situation.

To be fair, the police should investigate both Kaiya and Ben Phiri. Phiri was aware of what was going on and the cadets may have carried pistons on instruction by their master. If Minister’s bodygurads do not brandish pistons, what is Phiri to seek such heavy protection? Malawi does not belong to a few individuals but to all bonafide citizens. We don’t want a repeat of “all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” scenario. This was well planned to terrorise the public which should not be condoned in modern Malawi. Both Kaiya and Ben Phiri… Read more »
