Police shake up security detail  for Malawi former presidents

Government has made some changes to security detail for former presidents Joyce Banda, Peter Mutharika and Bakili Muluzi.

Joyce Banda has additional security

Malawi Police Service has withdrawn two security guards from Banda and replaced with five; and deployed five to Mutharika and one to Muluzi.

This is according to police communication dated 17th February, 2021.

The withdrawn police guards are sub Inspectors Vincent Mtalawi and Isaac Msukumwa who are redeployed to Police Mobile Service (PMS).

Those deployed to Banda include sub inspector Alick Chafikana from PMS; Gift Kupheka from Chimbiya police unit; sergeant Yohane Mlenga from PMS; Sgt Chimwemwe Mkwamba from Muloza police unit and Sgt Aaron Amon from Lilongwe police station.

No guard has been withdrawn from Mutharika and instead he has received five.

Those going to Mutharika include sub inspectors Evance Namsongole from Chinsapo police unit; Yamikani Ntenje from PMS; Blessings Libwe from Chiradzulu police station and sergeants Chiyembekezo Muheku from PMS and Precious Mikewell from South Lunzu.

On his part, Muluzi has received one more guard sub Inspector Muhammad James from PMS.

The transfers are believed to be part of the ongoing deployment of police staff since the Tonse Alliance government took the reigns of power last June.

The police has not given any reasons for the shakeup.

Newly promoted Police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner James Kadadzera was not available for comment.

The headline is misleading. Omly 2 police officers were removed grom Joyce banda and replaced by 5 Muthalika and Mulizu just got extra police officers. Police increased police officers to former presidents or beefed up security persennel. Zopusa basi .Muzilemba zoti tikawelenga zizipanga sense nfi headline yanuyo. Shake up itiyo.

Hate it or take it but it's a fact

Better this government is increasing security details of former heads of state than what was DPP doing by reducing security detail from the vice president coz he choose to differ with them .

Are their lives at a threat ? This is a waste of resources, deploy these officers in the streets to curb crime and deal with night drug peddlers
