The fraud, which was perpetrated during the 2015 promotions for police officers would have gone unnoticed, but Malawi24 investigations have revealed through an inside source.

PoliceSources revealed that during the promotions for officers in 2015, officers who were promoted in their rank are alleged to have paid Mk40,000 each as bribe to the officers involved in conducting the assessments for promotion.

Confiding with this publication investigations, he said Inspector Trapence of Confidential Registry in Area 30 has been transferred to Bulala Police Unit for selling promotions at a price of Mk40,000 “The money was collected by Sub Inspector Goster of Lilongwe station.

He was telling us that its his friend from police headquarters needing the money. He was charging Mk50, 000 but after bargaining we paid Mk40, 000. It is Bravo Sub Owen who spilled the beans to Deputy Inspector General of police,” stated the source.

Meanwhile, Rev Inspector Matewere has been transferred to a police unit in Northern part of Malawi. His transfer has been influenced by the prayer he made a new year’s party police had at area 30.

In his prayer, Matewele condemned other police officials for promotions based on relationship and money in which other police officers ululated. Police is one of the departments in Malawi where promotion are based on relationship and friendship.

  4. No wonder they always favour the government which is in power , they are not professionals in the investigations , shielding Dausi when he set fire to the warehouse which was keeping voters election materials in order to destroy evidence of rigging.

  5. The police should be promoted on merit. Names of officers should be recommended to an independent body that should interview them. When going for interviews officers should be allocated numbers that should be secret and successful candidates should be selected by an indepedent body that should only use the numbers and the owners of the numbers should claim the promotion. Some of us have worked in the police for many years but we see new recruits being promoted because they are able to get more money because they are given areas where they get more money through corruption like traffic, prosecution and CID

  13. Bad news. Should we expect staff to perform? An organisation that has no performance management systems can not deliver commendable services to public. Favourtism and corruption are indicators of morally decayed societies.
