New Malawi police IG Kainja ready to conclude Chasowa and other high profile cases

Newly-appointed Malawi Police Inspector General (IG) Dr. George Kainja has promised to fully complete investigations and deal with a number of high profile cases including that of a forth year engineering student at the Malawi Polytechnic Robert Chasowa.

Kainja: To head police

Chasowa was found in a pool of blood at the Polytechnic campus during the era of former rulling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Kainja admitted that it hasn’t been easy to investigate some cases under the previous DPP administration.

The Police chief also revealed that such high profile and attractive cases needs to go through several prossesses after police complete its work including sending to the Attorney General for guidance.

Meanwhile, Kainja said his office has started receiving evidence from the general public concerning the death of Isaa Njaunju and Chasowa which he said will greatly assist in speedy completion of the cases and that the culprits face the rule if law.

According to Kainja, the police are also investigating the torching of UTM office in Lilongwe that led to the death of a couple and one child while three other children survived during receiving treatment at Kamuzu Central Hospital.

Commenting on recent arrests of some DPP officials, the Police Chief denied that the arrests are politically motivated.

He said police alongside other agencies are just carrying out their normal duties as they are supposed to do in a normal working environment.

Some of the people who have been arrested since Tonse Alliance took over power include DPP Ward Councillor for Mthandizi Ward in Blantyre Isaac Jomo Osman, former bodyguard to outgoing president Peter Mutharika, Businessman James Chuma among others.

The police IG therefore warned that anyone who commits a crime will be brought to book regardless of his or her politically affiliation.

Meanwhile, Kainja said his office is working on a recovery plan to win back the trust of Malawians on their police service which he admitted  was lost.

He has since asked for patience from Malawians.

“Malawians just need to be patient and have trust us” he said.

My simple advice is dont open your mouth before you have understood the complex situation and task you have in your hands. Words always come back to haunt you.

When you start going into the National Archives in Zomba, that alone gives us hope coz we will rest assured that all those lives that disappeared during the one party reign (MCP) will see the light of day for natural justice will be applied. That is the beauty of keeping records, be it good, bad, professional or criminal in nature. I wish to commend you and wish you well as you embark on this arduous journey to unravel all the atrocities perpetrated by all past ruling parties. I would have loved it more if you begun soon as we got… Read more »

UDF and DPP failed to to deal with MCP atrocities because most of their senior members are the ones who committed those atrocities. Bakili Muluzi, Ntaba, Dausi

New broom sweeps clean,this is an old saying, indeed we are going to exercise patience but our prayer is that the moment we start commending good work done, don’t become complacent. The rule of law must reign no person should be above the law. Congratulations as you commence the reformation campaign.

We need action not rhetoric. Similar sentiments were said by Justice Nyirenda when he was appointed chief justice that he will reduce case backlog but what we see is priotising of political cases because there is benefit for him. Kainja should just shut up and work. after all he is still an illegal inspector because parliament has not confirmed him
