Police appeals for material and financial bailout

Deputy Commissioner of Police Rhoda Manjolo has appealed to companies and people of goodwill to donate material and financial resources to the police to enable law enforcers address security concerns.

Manjolo, who is Officer-in-Charge (OC) for Kawale Police Station, disclosed that law enforcers are facing challenges to tame rising crime rates in residential areas such as Kawale, Chilinde and Biwi due to lack of resources such as vehicles and fuel to conduct patrols.

The OC made the remarks on Friday when Fleet Tech Services (FTS) donated a desktop computer and a printer to the station.

“We are grateful to Fleet Tech Services for donating a computer and a printer to Kawale Police Station. But more challenges still remain; hence, we wish to appeal to companies and well-wishers to emulate the good example this company,” Manjolo said.

As FTS presented the donation to the station, a team of five police officers from Kawale Police Station was consulting vendors on how they can collaborate to tackle ever-rising crime rates in Kawale, Chilinde and Biwi residential areas.

“We require a lot of resources because human resource alone is not enough to tackle crime. We need vehicles; we need fuel to conduct patrols. Hence, we are appealing to the general public to come in to assist us,” she reiterated.

FTS Managing Director, Chimwemwe Phiri, said the donation aims to address some of the challenges the law enforcers, particularly in the Traffic Department, have been facing to issue a report.

“These officers are very professional, yet they lack the necessary resources to enable them discharge their duties. So, our donation aims to alleviate some of these challenges,” said Phiri.

I understand the venom spewing from individuals due to the endemic frustration in this part of the world. Let us remember that whosoever become our leaders come May 21 will inherit all the prevailing bottlenecks and loopholes that enable unwanton pilferage of public resources- basically a literally blank cheque. Now, will they change the system to shut all these loopholes? You must be unrealistically optimistic, naive or having very good dreams if you even entertain the thought that it may be so, as it is this ambiguity that enables easy funding of the political party machinery especially in a setup… Read more »

This is unethical and a recipe for disaster!, the Police should not be asking for donations from the general public. We pay taxes and that is what they should be used for………this is embarrassing to say the least…… Mother Malawi has become real hell

I can’t believe this, this is unheard off, in fact this is very unprofessional and it will compromise the ethical conduct of the police… This should be against the law!!!! This will lead to the Police serving those “who have ” while those who ” have not ” languish, This is a No NO No , ,,,,,,,,,,,please redirect your please to the Government

I wonder if police care about matters of national security or all they care about is getting money from citizens on the Malawi roads. Most corrupt people in this country are the police.
