No impunity! Minister Chimwendo promises a professional Malawi Police Service

The newly-appointed Minister of Homeland Security, Richard Chimwendo Banda, has assured Malawians that the Malawi Police Service will revert to serving the public in a professional manner and according to the law.

Minister Chimwendo Banda: Police will be professional service enforcing the law

Chimwendo Banda was speaking in Lilongwe on Tuesday when he was asked to explain the same by the state broadcaster, Malawi Broadcasting Cooperation (MBC).

“I agree that there has been a sour relationship between the public and the Malawi Police Service. This time the Malawi Police will have to work according to the law.

“President Dr Lazarus Chakwera is talking about the rule of law. When you provide your services according to the law, I don’t think Malawians will be disturbed again.

“We are going to work with the chiefs across the country and community leaders and make sure that there is that common understanding that the Malawi Police and all security agencies are there to support and protect them,” Chimwendo Banda explained.

Malawians lost trust in the Malawi Police Service during the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government when the youth belonging to the party branding themselves as “Ana Adad” or Cadets  were wild in breaking the law but the police was doing very little to contain the situation.

Before being appointed Minister of Homeland Security, Chimwendo Banda condemned two youths who labelled their vehicle number plates as “Ana Abusa” saying the new government will not copy unlawful tendencies from the previous regime of DPP  and now allow the impunity which has fallen to rise again.

Chimwendo will make the police professional if all the people who looted, destroyed propertie and bussineses and terrorised innocent Malawians in the name of Mtambo’s demonstrations are all delt with. Those who killed police man at Nsundwe should be sent back to jail. We know all were released and are back Nsundwe. Our human rights were terribly infringed upon.

The impunity of the party functionaries is rooted in the history of this nation since independence. In Dr Kamuzu Banda era the MCP District Chairman would just direct the police to lock up whoever he thought was against the party leadership. The police never questioned those directs. Hon Chimwendo should not only spice his debut as a minister with juicy words as merely as an icing on our euphoria cake we want an independent police not the heels of the illiterate party hoodlums. The Malawi hasn’t been adequately free from our political zealots Our youth tend to form careers out… Read more »

Chimwendo, work out on the gulewankulu that you release to terrorise people.

HARDCORE FEDERALISM SUPPORTER

Malawi police are useless and terrorists too. They can’t uphold the constitution of Malawi only the MDF is respected. Malawi police officers are used by any political party that is in power to terrorize unarmed innocent citizens like what happened in Msundwe, Lilongwe. Where are the perpetrators? These people raped school children, married women, grandmothers, and nothing is done about it. We are sick and tired of being promised that these rapists will now behave. I don’t think so. All these police need to be fired and let new police come in.

I believe the new Minister Chimwendo knows how corrupt our police is. And I am sure he knows how dangerous it for such security organs to be corrupt. If this MCP Govt is to fight corruption then first it is to end it at police then the police will help the Govt in rooting out it. Otherwise it will be a song sung by any new Minister that he will make his ministry professional.

Especially these traffic officers who act as thugs on the roads and manufacture traffic offences. It is embarrassing that such harrassment of innocent citizens is done with only one motive – raising income. Please desist from harassing us.
