Speaking when he received the facility on behalf government on Monday, Minister of  Home Affairs and Internal Security Grace Chiumia commended the South African based businessman for the donation, saying it would ease challenges faced by the police in the district.

“Simbi Phiri has shown that he has a giving heart hence the donation  to the community, We appreciate the good relationship you have with the government, This is a good gesture, and patriotism at its best,” She said.

Besides the Police unit, Phiri also donated furniture, a vehicle (a Ford ranger) and five motorcycles to ease mobility among police officers in their law enforcing duties.

Senior Chief Mkanda  commended Phirifor his contribution to development projects in Mchinji.

“What you are doing for the people of Mchinji is of huge significance. Not long ago you also handed over Tembwe Health centre to the people of Mchinji. You are a real son of the land,” said Mkanda in reference to the K200 Milliom health facility which Simbi renovated

Inspector General of Police LexterKachama said the new offices will enable police staff at Kamwendo have a decent place to operate from.

“What we have witnessed today is the best definition of a good working relationship between police and citizens. The battle against crime cannot be won by police alone, it requires community involvement . We at Malawi police Service do not take this gesture by Simbi Phiri for granted,” He said.

Speaking in an interview after the handover ceremony SimbiAshan Phiri who is also chairperson of Khato Holdings, a Civil Engineering Company based in South Africa said he funded the construction of the police Unit after noting the poor state it was in.

Simbi Phiri also rejectedrumours that he gives back to the community because he is eyeing a political seat.

“I do my businesses in South Africa and Botswana and I am successful there, I have heard the rumours that I want to join politics but this is not true,”He said, adding he interacts with all political parties in the country and his donations are non-partisan.

Apart from the construction of the new office block  which will be used as Victim support Unit, Phiri also renovated the old Kamwendo Police unit.

The prominent businessman also donated a borehole at Mchinji Police Station worth K6 Million.

You cann go to house depot and seize one thing within tthe pluming pzrt
however I recommend getting a smaller torch with a more manageable flame so you don’t end
up heating up the glass in your piece too… which results in one
other good level: choose a bit that gives you room to heat your
nail (you want the nail to increase out an inch or two).

This is the spirit our country lacks but desperately needs. As someone says, some districts are definitely blessed with rare gems like Mr Simbi. These people are so selfless they use their wealth to better the lives of others without expecting to be worshipped. A $200m clinic and then an K85m police station, all to help his people? Surely, he’s gotta be an ANGEL!!! Dowa has another angel, Napoleon Dzombe. He’s done so much for others in so many places. Recently, he’s revived rice farming in Nkhotakota by constructing a milling factory for an entire community. So, yeah; both Mr… Read more »

what Simbi Phiri has done is something that needs to be put under the microscope. Helping Malawi is not a bad thing, but it depends where the help goes and the motive behind it. I would not have questioned him if his help went to the Ministry of Health or education, but to police it is questionable. Will the police arrest Simbi Phiri if he is involved in a criminal act? My sense is that he is corrupting the police so that he should be left scot-free when he is involved in any dirty business.

Why is the DPP government giving this guy free political mileage like this? This guy is MCP through to the bone. The recent loss by DPP at the hands of MCP in the Mchinji West by-elections was all engineered by non other than Simbi Phiri. All the 4×4 vehicles used to monitor polling stations and accompany ballot boxes to the counting centres were all funded by none other than Mr Phiri. This included campaign funds for MP Mwale distributed to all the Chiefs in the constituency. 2014 elections, MCP and Rev Dr Chakwera was wholly funded by the likes of… Read more »

this is nonsense. Do you want people to suffer at the expense that Simbi Phiri is MCP and his donations should be rejected. If Simbi Phiri had not constructed Kamwendo Police Station do you think DPP government would have done anything taking into consideration the poor state of the office? Please, have the welfare of the people at first rather than subject everything to politics. Udzafa imfa yowawa

Ndalama zakubazo amwene? Get the gist of my story osati anandilanda mkazi sindinafike pokwatila l am just saying facts as they are. Simbi’s money is dirty period! Just google the internet and see the sleaze Simbi is involved in. Yes times are tough for Malawi but we have to be principled not as to allow any and all dirty money into our hands and country. Our DPP government should remain clean and not taint ourselves with dirty money from this Simbi guy. Anthu mwangolandila kachiphapha ka galimoto kotha itha mwati munthu ndi ameneyu za mkutu za nyooo!

So to some fools DPP is a clean party. “Get the gist of my story ” are you normal in the brain or there is no network. So if Simbi’s money is dirty who should be advised against it. Government or MCP. Can’t you see that all these are dirty people working together. Unity of purpose. Let us accept your argument and believe that the money is dirty. He steals it from tax payers in RSA. What is the difference Peter steals from tax payers in Malawi. And you are also dirty. You want government to give you jobs not… Read more »

Mwangodana naye munthuyu amwene. Ndale zachikale zimenezo Prof APM ndi mzungu sapanga ndale zachimidzi ndipo saona mtundu wa munthu bola iweyo ungokhala dolo basi h the president works with anyone who is smarter regardless of they were before. Simbi is a businessman and has the right to interact with every malawian. If indeed government has given him contract to pump water from salima then i say to APM gpvernment that you have my vote in 2019 because you have proved that you are president for all malawians and not just few members of dpp. Mwatilemekeza dala ochewafe opresident.

Sindinga dane naye Simbi amwene sim’bale wanga. l just say it as it is. DPP as a ruling party cannot fund their nemesis to oil opposition politics kuti adzawachose pampando. Kukhala ku opposition ndikowawa and DPP should be the first to know that. They thus cannot be aiding their political demise by funding this Simbi guy. It’s a very simple strategy you cripple your nemesis so that they do not have the capacity to unseat you. That is how we maintain power in Africa. Government may as well look for somebody to undertake the water pipeline project and not this… Read more »
