Govt. working on improving security in Malawi

Government says it is making strides to make sure that security in the country is maintained despite the challenges the Malawi Police Service face.

This was established during a familiarisation tour by the minister of home affairs and internal security Grace Chiumia at the police headquarters in Lilongwe.

Speaking during the tour, Chiumia said the police service is facing problems ranging from lack of vehicles which makes it hard for them to respond quickly when need arises.

“The challenge they are facing most is lack of vehicles which makes it hard for them to respond in time when they are called to help,” said Chiumia.

She added that there is also an issue of housing which is becoming a problem whereby most police officers stay in rented houses which is not good.

Chiumia said as government they will look into the problems facing the police service though government is still facing problems in terms of resources.

On his part, Inspector General of police Lexten Kachama said despite facing challenges they are making strides to end the problems instead of just looking up to government.

He claimed that they have also ventured into commercial farming to in order to increase their resources.
