The Deputy Inspector General of Police responsible for Administration, Mr. Happy Mkandawire, has urged officers manning border districts to continue providing quality services to the citizenry and also collaborate with neighboring security institutions.

The call was made on September 22, 2023, during his visit to Ngapani and Maleta Police Units in Mangochi, respectively.

In his address, Mkandawire applauded both formations for maintaining a good relationship with the communities, which has resulted in halting some of the border crimes in the areas.

“I’m encouraging you to collaborate with community leaders, utilize your roles, and come up with good community structures in order to continue halting crimes along the border and immediately sharing information,” Mkandawire said.

Before addressing the officers at Maleta Police Unit, Mkandawire also inspected the construction of a new office and staff houses, which are about to be completed.

Both formations presented challenges, one of which was the periodic rotation of officers because the places are far and isolated.

In his response, Mkandawire promised to rectify the challenges as quickly as possible. However, he encouraged them to continue working according to management’s expectations, saying their presence is very important because communities along the borders also need police services.

Representing Mangochi Police Station Officer In-charge, the General Duties Officer 1, Mr. Phillip Dinala, Assistant Commissioner of Police, thanked the DIG “A” for visiting the places.

Dinala assured Mkandawire that despite challenges, the officers are hardworking and display good conduct at all times, which is why they coordinate well with members of the community.
