Malawi Police Chief Fired

Malawi Police Chief Fired

Joyce Banda

By Staff Reporter
In a dramatic turn of events Malawis newly sworn in President Joice Hilder Band Sunday afternoon fired the country’s Police Inspector General Peter Mukhatho and replaced him with police Commissioner Lonzi Zonzi.
This has sparked fears among other government officials appointed by the late President Bingu WA Mutharika who had been accused nepotism on several occasions by the former Vice President Banda. Banda had been accusing Mutharika during her Peoples Party rallies of nepotism by promoting people of his Lomwe tribe particularly Mulanje and Nthyolo districts in top government positions, citing the fired Mukhitho as an example.
In a statement signed by the Office of President and Cabinet- OPC Banda who is also the Police Commander- in -Chief says Zonzi is the police Chief with effect from Sunday. The firing of Mukhatho, who was described by the late Mutharika as the best Police Inspector General Malawi has ever had, has pleased most people in major cities of
Blantyre, Lilongwe and MZuzu who claim that the officer was promoting Dictatorial tendencies together with the former President by making the country a police state. “True he must go we dont want him, he killed our 20 children during the July 20 pro democracy demonstrations” said 56year old Brown Soko. Meanwhile, this Sodom
and Gomorrah of sacking out incompetent top government officials is expected to
Continue as the President is striving to bring sanity in government in attempt
to regain the country’s lost donor confidence. .

    she is too carthatic. These banda names are perculiar. From VP to the top through the demise of their boses such as mwanawasa and bingu. So they are not good names to appoint as your deputy coz you will die so thap

    u felow zambians u dnt kno how ths mukhito behaves thats why you are saing the new president is acting too fast…the guy is total iliterate and a big crap…and it dsnt matter whether the late president is buried or not for her to fire these handclappers chicken of pipo! I can tel u that almost 80% of people here in malawi are happy with the death of bingu and tha firing of the police chief….juct imagine he orderd hs police men to fire live bulets which later killed 20 people and he also orchastrated the death of robert chasowa who was killed with bear hands by the police! HE DESERVES THE FIRING…. I rest my case

    Ma Banda fire, fire, fire next should be Patricia Kaliati, late Bingu,s prostitute. She did not want you to ascend to power even when your Constitution is very clear on succession.

    She seems to be a follower of Zambia’s President Ukwa. Ukwa is still firing and hiring up to ow. 2moro Ukwa will continue with the firing after a long spell due to his pathetic health

  18. Nzengos   April 9, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    She is getting advice from Ukwa, ‘hire and fire’ begins, tiye-tiye!

    anyone who has followed politics in malawi will know that this was going to happen, the guy was a let down to our malawian sisters and brothers. he was a devil, he has been fired i think cause he may have been thought to be contemplating something sinister, he knwe would never hold his office after BWT’s death. for me, good riddance!

    Zambians, before you start accusing our beloved President of acting too fast please do acquaint yourself with the political activities of the past two years. In fact the IG was not supposed to last a day in office. He is a criminal. Our country was rotten and the cleaning up will have so many casualties but the country is prepared for it.
