  1. MY ADVISE TO THE INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE PLS SIR DONT ALLOW YOUR OFFICERS ON ESCORT TO BE IN THE SAME CAR TRAVELLING CASH U SHLD DRAW BY LAWS THAT WHOSOEVER WANTS TO HIRE OFFICERS FOR ESCORTING MONEY SHLD HIRE TWO OR THREE CARS ONE FOR CASH AND OWNERS OF THE MONEY N TWO FOR OFFICERS COMPLISING OF NON N UNIFORMED OFFICERS AND THE NUMBER OF OFFICERS SHOULD EXCEED 4 ARMED OFFICERS BECAUSE THUGS ARE IN GANGS OF 6 OR 10 ROBERS. PLEASE PLEASE.

  6. Government must give more AK47 to the police officers for their safety as well as the safety of the business community.Soldiers also need to be deployed so that they can work hand in hand with the police officers especially in this chrismis period.However,in big cities like Lilongwe,Blantyre and Limbe, security need to be very tough and tight for these are the most invested areas.Harare in Zimbabwe, soldiers are scattered everywhere everyday and every time to ensure tight security and of course security is always very tight in Zimbabwe.

  8. Let me agree with those who proposed for bullet proof vests to all police officers.I’m also calling upon the minister of Home Affairs to look into this, otherwise, our police officers’ lives are always at stake

  9. This is a wake up call police officers should wear bulletproof not only on the chest but all over the body. These indian-owned shops should hire atleast 5 heavily armed officers to guard day & night

  10. For the brave patrotic police officer’s family what are they getting? the same peanuts that can not even afford them nyumba yamauzu kumuzi, honestly its high time we introduced risk allowance and insurance to ourservice men.
