The illustration is a stereotype definition of police work which has no room in a democracy. The reformed police has moved away from being a ‘ FORCE’ to police security institution which does not use force to neutralise unarmed suspects. As such, the illustration portrays a misleading picture of police work. Mpakana kufinya khosi! The media has a responsibility to promote proper police work.

That’s true, and do we really need an illustration for any story. Let us have our imaginations, we are mature.

I haven’t read anywhere where Lhomwe is mentioned. I am from the Centre but pointing a finger at a Lhomwe is uncalled for, unfair.
