152

Police in Blantyre have impounded 16 vehicles belonging Blantyre Water Board (BWB) following mass disconnections of water at police houses in the city.

Information sourced by this publication reveals that for the past year the law enforcers have been failing to settle a bill of K340 million.

According to BWB spokesperson Priscilla Mateyu, the board opted to disconnect water at the police officers’ houses after discussions to clear up the bill did not bear fruits. Mateyu added that the board needs the money for administration purposes and that is why a disconnection exercise was carried out at Kanjedza police camp and Mount Pleasant police houses.

In reaction, the law enforcers mounted road blocks in the city to hunt for BWB vehicles as a revenge for the water providers’ decision.

The law enforcers have backed their move of impounding the vehicles arguing that the cars were being used with worn out tires.

Meanwhile the vehicles have been stationed at Blantyre police station in the city.

  1. Corruption is dwindling development in Malawi, u so called police u r not special not to pay bills ,no 1 is above the law so what u have done is unexcceptable, u must obey the law ,this shows luck of leadership in this institution

  2. BWB Let the police keep your vehicles, while you completely stop all the pipes that waters their premises and offices. azikasoma kutchire, until they pay for the water they used and release the vehicles. it’s when you water them.

  5. Who’s going to impound Police Landcrusers which are always with worn out tyres?
    BWB, LWB, Escom and Judiciary vehicles shouldve all necessary accessories and always applying fear factor to our men in uniform and their families.
    Its a shame MPS and their subjects are failing to settle this meagre amount which can be raised in just a week thru your traffic dept-sizikwangwani iyayi, zapansewu zizifika ku station.

  8. Policemen are supposed to be treated well.Govt is supposed to collaborate with waterboard not to disconnect water. During Kamuzu time,this wasn’t there.Civilians are not supposed to poke nose into houses of our police officers.Govt plse rescue and resolve this quickly.Its so shameful .How can our policemen discharge their duties without water?One is not doing his job properly somewhere.

    • Ndiwe wamumpanda ku police George. Chipatala chmadulidwa madzi wat more police. Waterboard can only operate with enaf funds. Hw do they get the funds? It’s thru bill payments. Akapanda kulipira apolicewo madzi apopedwa bwanj? Don’t forget, waterboards get power frm Escom where they are also charged. Atati asamalipire kumeneko akwanitsa kupeleka madzi? Kamoyo kakamuzu kaja kanakhalilira maiyo. Kuzolowera zaulele titukuka bwanj ngat amalawi. Pot ndife apamseu tidzkwera galimoto mwaulele.

  10. Pamenepo akhaule ndindani? Vehicles can stay there nanga inu madzi mumwa ku? Palibe nzeru a pa .Aliyense ngofunika payekha .Just understand each other.Bill yo yachuluka ka

  11. Where is this country driving to? This is doom for sure! If we can’t pay water bills how is gonna the organisation perform its duties! Zolowa mbola basi I don’t know where we are heading usovaaa!

  12. Malawian police full of fraud. The impounded vehicles have bn moving on Malawian roads with the said problems but didnt want to do their job. Now that BWB has done its job on the police, they now pretend to perform their duties in retaliation. Pathetic police in Malawi. No way all the 16 vehicles could develop the problems in 1 or 2 days. Malawians driven by bad motives. Counter developmet minds.

  13. So this takes place everywhere….. Even here in Zambia, Police has a system of impounding vehicles for any utility company once there is mass disconnection in the police camp….

  14. Kudzaona Anyamata A Water B Kudzabwera Ndiyawo Ija .Kwinakuso Kudzaona Makhoba Kudzabwelaso Ndi Tai CHI. Pamalawi Pamenepo !!!! Kusovetsana .

  15. this is bull shit, thats what happens to all of us, the police needs to know that, if they are doing that to people who r just doing there work then what picture are they giving to us??? and what if we do the same since they have paved the way for it, tilakwitsa???

  16. Poor servicex BWB, inu ndi ofunika kumakubelani choncho… Madzi kumatha mwez oxatuluka bt at è end ov è month mukubwelexa bill.. Amangwetu nanu a police pelekani dollar k k k. Ife tili kuma stand kuchemelela

  17. The Police are like that, they want everything for free without even been responsible for their utilities. How do we develop our Nation with this mindset?

  18. Chofunika apa aBWB alipire milandu imene yapezeka mmagalimoto ao. Apolice alipiliso ndalama zofunika kulipira ku BWB basi nkhani yatha .koma ziwawa winao pot cash yofunika kupereka ndiyambiri.
