Malawi Police denies recruitment scandal

108

The Malawi Police Service (MPS) says there was no corruption in the recruitment of police cadets.

The development comes as some individuals are pointing fingers at the MPS for chasing away over 200 police students who were supposed to go for police training at Kanjedza Police Training School (Kanjedza-PTS).

A student at Kanjedza PTS, who asked for anonymity, said there is corruption taking place at the Malawi Police Service.

Police recruitment was reported to be hit by favoritism.

He said more people are going into the department without proper qualifications.

The source said it is not a secret anymore that top officials at the police headquarters in Lilongwe are corrupt. He said he has some friends who found themselves a place for the training by buying invitation letters at the police headquarters.

“What is happening is that they are surprisingly chasing students away from the training school for no proper reasons. This is giving an image that they are doing this with a special reason because no person can be chased because of sneezing and coughing, that’s not a disease.

“You can imagine that last Friday after chasing over 180 students we were 771 students and in the next morning surprisingly the number increased and we were 863 students. I have some friends who bought invitation forms at K150,000 from the headquarters,” said the source.

He added that the police officials are chasing some cadets saying they do not have proper qualifications, to give room for people who have given the officers money.

However, deputy national police publicist Tomeck Nyaude, said there is no corruption happening and those being chased away are not qualified to be trained as police officers.

He said it is their duty to end corruption and added that no officials at the headquarters can be doing that.

Nyaude added that they advertised for the post and interviews were done and these people know that they did not qualify.

  15. It’s your time please be doing that but leaving deserving candidates at the cost of what you know is a total shame this nation.How can you say that those who were sent back did not qualify.We might be interested to know as to who gave them the letters that’s the bottom line.But forget not that there’s always tomorrow God is watching .Of late know clear answers were given on the buying of promotions and now you are in again SHAME.

  16. This is incompetence for Mr Nyaunde a public officer lying to Malawians where are they geting the addups when they chase un qualified ones? Everyone is aware about the corruption taking place in police service. Be ashamed of yourself by trying to defend yourself from doing evils with your men in uniforms.
