Police officer want Kainja back

Some senior police officers at Malawi Police Service (MPS) headquarters have asked the incoming President  Dr Lazarus Chakwera to reverse the surprise decision by outgoing President Peter Mutharika to send Commissioner of Police Responsible for Research Dr George Kainja to a diplomatic mission in Zimbabwe, saying the Police  cannot afford to lose such a reliable and experienced officer during the transition period.

Kainja: Popular among cops
Mutharika recently removed Commisioner Kainja from his position and offered him a new post as Deputy High Commisioner for Malawi in Zimbabwe.
According to the communication from government, Kainja was supposed to start working at the Malawi mission in Zimbabwe on June 11 although he got the communication a week later.
However, two senior police officers, speaking to Nyasa Times on conditions of anonymity have requested Chakwera to reverse the decision.
“We were surprised with the announcement and we know this was a political move by the Mutharika administration. Kainja is a well experienced and reliable police officer and has been in the service for close to 30 years. He has been a mentor to most police officers and he knows his job.
“We have been wondering what crime did he commit to get such treatment from the DPP government. Is it because he comes from Ntchisi?” wondered one of the senior officers.
Holder of a Bachelor’s  Degree in Education from Chancellor College and a Doctorate of Philosophy, Kainja has served as Commissioner for Southern and Central regions in the MPS before being posted to Area 30 to serve as Commisioner Reposible for Research, a position once held by former Police Inspector General Lot Dzonzi before he became IG.
Apart from serving as a police officer, Kainja has been lecturing at Mzuzu University and Share World Open University as a part-time lecturer. He played a key role in the establishment of a course of Security Studies at Mzuni.

Be reminded Malawians that new Malawi is starting with clean politics since dirty politics not welcome at all. Dirty politicians make politics a dirty game. Malawi politics shall be a clean game from now onwards.

Politicians get dirty when people switch off, when we stop paying attention and calling them out. Remember, absolute power corrupts absolutely. Every citizen has to be engaged moving forward. There is no one out there coming to save our country. We have to save ourselves from poverty, hunger, disease, cynicism, ignorance, nepotism, tribalism, the list goes on and on. If we stop paying attention we will be having this same discussion again in 4 short years.

Who feels it knows it, so the saying goes. Amene akutsutsa zomwe a police akufuna kuti bwana wawo Kainja abwerere mu office, sakudziwa chimene akunena. Akumufunawo ndi a police anzake amene akhala akugwira nawo ntchito ndipo akumudzidziwa kuti ndi machine pa ntchito yake. So we civilians should “SHUT UP” . Osamaoneka madolo pa ntchito yomwe simukuiziwa. Kaya ndi Umuthalika omwe ukukuvutani amenewo ndi mavuto anu. Let the incoming administration of Tonse Alliance take charge and grant them their plea for the betterment of the police service especially now that the service will be one of the busiest agents of government… Read more »
