Police have encouraged Malawians to be calling out public transport drivers whenever the motorists are driving recklessly.

According to the police, reckless driving is the major reason for road accidents that claim lives of innocent people in the country.

James Kadadzera says passengers need to report reckless drivers.

These remarks have come following several accidents that occurred in the country last weekend and claimed over 10 lives.

National Police spokesperson James Kadadzera has disclosed that these accidents occurred due to excess speeding of the vehicles and he has appealed to passengers that they should be questioning misbehaving drivers.

“As a police we are appealing to passengers that they should be cautioning the drivers when they are misbehaving for example when they are overspeeding,” he said.

Kadadzera added that drinking beer while driving is prohibited in this land and therefore he encouraged passengers that if they fail to caution driver by themselves they should be calling the police for the assistance.

On Monday, Members of Parliament (MPs) observed a minute of silence before starting the proceedings and later they asked the government to put measures in order to reduce occurrences of such accidents.

Meanwhile engineers have expressed their worry over the accidents that are happening on the roads of the country.

  1. NEW TRAFFIC FINES SPEED TRAP KIOO, SEAT BELT KIO, EXCEEDING K9O, WRONG PARKING FREE, (chosapo galimoto) ROUTE FREE . ABNORMAL LOAD FREE (tseka boot) MACHEZA. A POLICE GWIRANI NTCHITO YANU AT ITS BEST. KEEP ON SAVE LIVES. ANTHU ENA SAYAMIKA PAKACHITIKA ZABWINO.

  2. PROFESIONALS AT THIER WORK . TRAFFIC POLICE HAVE BEEN THERE EVER SINCE AND ACCIDENTS HAVE BEEN THERE. SO IT MEANS THE TRAFFIC ACT WAS WRITTEN BEFORE ROAD ACCIDENTS . VEHICLES ARE INSURED BECAUSE OF ACCIDENTS . LETS TALK OF INSURANCE COVERING VEHICLES

  3. The police should have toll-free numbers in all the regions which can be used in case a report has to be made.

  4. That will create enemity amongst people, will be witnessing fights in the roads btween drivers n passengers, and even if we do that police men are full of corruption, I second buying of speed detectors as government and engage special officers not those corrupt police men.

  5. if they detain speeding bus the passengers are on the forefront insulting police officers . why should police work under panick with passengers while its them who are at risk. police dont bother yourselves protecting people who doesn’t want to protect themselves

  6. What if the police chose not to take any action or in case the police are not picking up your call? What should the passengers do themselves? Calling police for reckless driving is not a solution because a passenger will call the police and sometimes before reaching the police territory or before police react the bus will already have been involved in a disastrous accident and the passenger who called the police will have either dead or injured pamenepo ndekuti tathandiza anthu ngati? The reckless drivers are supposed to be mob justified once caught simple.

  14. First all police uniforms must not have pockets. Because that is where they want to put money. Second they must be speed traps. Lastly the must be a unit like PSPTT( Police,Special,Protection, Tactic,Team. That must work undercover

  15. amachita kudzichemelera ma driver kuti bus iyi ndi ya company palibe angaimange olomkuimanga takaitengela ku wire komweko. ati mabwana awo anagula police yonse kuyambira ku likulu

  16. Ma galimoto amadzadza mo opsya Ku kasungu komanso Ku msewu wa mchinji koma amadutsa pa a traffic police……traffic police officers are also involved in causing accidents in the roads of Malawi

  17. Which traffic officers vimbundi too much zulo anamulanda 5000k doctor akuthamangira ku emergency ku central ndi mbava heavy eeee mwandiziwa so whatttt kubera anthu too much

  18. Is it going to be free? Why with this corrupt police.All what,they do is to allow,the vehicle pass by them and stop at a distance and never go to check on the vehicle but only call the drive to give them some money and let it go.Standard of corruption by Malawi Police

  19. I can assure the public that all road blocks are full of corruption pipo MRA & Road traffic officers.
    Over loaded vehicles they pass road block the stop 100mts after driver board off and go to road block officers giv them money amounting between 1000 to 2000.
    Officers not very strict with their jobs.

  20. A police ake akatangalewa? Amalora galimoto yoti ili ndi milandu kudutsa atawafumbatitsa K200 yeniyeni bola agule gelewa wa memo risking miyoyo ya anthu because of 200 kwacha eeeeeish Kaya. Malawians are not safe ndikayika ngati zingathandize zimenezo

  21. As much as u blame police officers on drivers’speeding,do passengers know their duties,how many have reported to apolice officer on the drivers behaviour or how many have insulted the same officer for cautioning thr drivers behaviour.It is gud to blame them but also look the behaviour of some passengers.

  22. Choyamba tisayang’ane bvuto lama driver lokha tionenso miseu yathu abale ,mwachitsanzo mseu ochokera pa Benga kukafika ku Dwangwa ndiwo dandaulitsa kwambiri ngakhale ma bus amayenda usiku kupita ku Mzuzu.

  23. Iiiii tilipire bus…ithamange kwambiri tichosenso ya airtime kumuimbira wa police. Ndye pakhalenso povuta network ikudyerenso airtime pomwepo.

    Government shld buy speed trap cameras basi

  24. Where is the number.? Which police officers?? How will they respond??? I wonder how happy these so called police officers are when they hear that lives of innocent people have been lost in a road traffic accident whilst they know for sure they received just very little money in bribe to let the passenger vehicles with some issues pass. May God purnish them because even their bosses are happy doing the same corrupt work. A witch bewitches one at a time but these satanists sales the whole bus with only K500. Ingandichimwitse nkhani iyi….

    • Siilani pompo bwana mungachimwe, but there is sense in what yu have said…our police officers are too corrupt….and un fortunately our ACB is a sleeping dog…but our lord God him self is watching.

  25. Police (traffic section) should introduce a toll-free # to report these careless drivers! All the radio stations in Malawi should announce this toll free # for quick impact!

  26. hehehe the problem is the road traffic department 2 much chinyengo popeleka ma COF amadya zakuba n nawo a traffic police chinyengo ,a boma nawo chinyengo popeleka ma contract opanga upgrade misewu ma driver alibe vuto amayengetsa mosamala

  27. Malawi is behind indeed,just buy speed detectors as our neighbouring country,Tanzania.
    Scatter traffic officers with these machines. The issue is over.

    • Malawi will not change just because the political leaders are short sighted that they dont learn from other leaders all what they know is kubera amphawi

  28. Then RTD should make it a point that every passenger bus should have police phone numbers on display in the buses as a preliquisite for cof certification.
