Police reprimands gulewamkulu for causing anarchy in Kasungu

Central East police commissioner,  Happy Mkandawire,  has talked down the behaviour of people,  some members of Gulewamkulu,  saying it is an enemy of progress and very uncivilised.

Gule Wamkulu 
Mkandawire said in Bowe, Kasungu on Thursday,  that it was unfortunate that people were able to vandalize structures that are meant to serve them.
He requested people of Bowe Trading Centre during an emergency meeting as he toured a police unit that had been vandalized by mob justice.
The plea came after angry people, most in gulemkulu regalia vandalized the police unit on Tuesday, October 6, 2020.
On the material day,  residents from the area were baying for the blood of a habitual criminal who was in police custody for stealing a motorcycle.
In his remarks, Mkandawire applauded the chiefs in the area for standing firm with police in protecting the facility.
However, he condemned the act and labeled it as retrogressive on the part of development.
“With this kind of behavior we cannot develop,” cautioned Mkandawire.
He further directed that in pursuant to criminal justice, all suspects involved in the matter would be arrested and prosecuted accordingly.
The Commissioner further advised the people to engage contact and dialogue strategies once they are aggrieved or are not satisfied with services from service providers.
He therefore promised community members that police operations in the area would continue normally.
Ward Councilor for the area,   Chakhaza North, Rachael Meke admitted that violence that was perpetrated was unfortunate, and hence called on law enforcers to apprehend all those behind this anarchistic acts.
She has since asked chiefs, business community members and the community at large to work together in restoring the facility to its original shape.

People lost trust in Police and surely they cannot be controlled.Angry people went to Police Unit and seek a person who had stolen the motor-cycle and the Police hid the victim though not approved by the court. If the Police was in agreement with the aggrieved parties there could not be such un for-seen matters. One police officer cannot call gule wamkulu as civilized. Mind you with your language. We are in towns and doing much better than Police but TINAPITA KU GULE WAMKULUYO.

From what I have learnt from Mr Happy Mkandawire is that all gule wamkulu structures be destroyed. One thing I have noted is that gule is not supposed to vandalize any property of either persons. Mr Mkandawire’s mood to destroy all structures of gule wa mkulu as an enermy of development is totally WRONG. For your information you cannot destroy Vimbuza for causing havoc.I am really shocked if at all mkulu wa dambwe was available when Mkandawire altered these words. Police got ma dambwe in place and whether school or not school. I have with me Drs. who went to… Read more »

From what I know, Bowe is not in Kasungu but Dowa. That said, people should not be allowed to tarnish the image of gule wamkulu by indulging in sinister and thuggery acts behind gule. My village, just across Bua River, has gule wamkulu and never involved in such acts….all stopped when T/A Njombwa talked against it.
