Let’s be factual. This Supuni was not arrested as a deputy army commander but a civilian suspected of having committed a crime under the laws of Malawi. The issue of the Army and Police fighting does not and should never arise! This should not be misunderstood otherwise we are nurturing chaos in this peaceful country. Mukungoti menyanani, mukuona ngati inu simudzakhudzidwa ndi kumenyana kwa pachiweniweni ngati kumeneku?! Mwakhuta mtendere eti!! Shit.

MALAWI POLICE IS INFACT MORE STRONGER THAN OUR ARMY IN ALL ASPECTS. EVEN IF YOU TALK OF ONE TO ONE FIGHTING POLICE GUYS ARE VERY STRONG AND IAM SORRY TO SAY THAT ONE DAY ALL ARMY CUMPS WILL BE VACUATED DUE FIECE BATTLE BETWEEN THE TWO. THE BEST WAY TO CALM DOWN THE POLICE IS THAT THE ARMY CHIEF MUST SERIUSLY SIT DOWN WITH HIS CHILDREN AND ADVISE THEM TO RESPECT POLICE FORCES OTHERWISE ANYETSEDWA KOBASI CHIFUKWA KWAKULA NDI KUDERERA.
