Inspector General for cooperation in crime fight


Inspector General of Police Lexten Kachama has said it is important for security agencies in the Southern African Development Community region to meet and strategise on how to fight crime.

The top cop said, through such meetings, the agencies can devise means of reducing cases of crime.

“As a region, we need to work together in the fight against crime. The war against crime cannot be won in isolation. If we work together, we can win the war. Sometimes criminals commit an offence, in Malawi but escape to Mozambique,” Kachama said.


He was speaking in Lilongwe on Wednesday during the opening of a meeting by International Police (Interpol) on criminal intelligence investigations.

Kachama said sharing information by police services in the region will give criminals no chance, as they would have nowhere to hide.

“We share intelligence, we share information, and we even arrest criminals who have committed offences in other countries. Criminals should not find one country they should hide in when they commit offences.


“It is very important to be together and to be talking about issues of security together so that we [as a region] can share [ideas on] plans and challenges so that we see how best we can solve such challenges.”

Interpol is the world’s largest international police organisation, with 190 member countries.

Its role is to enable police around the world to work together to make the world a saferplace.
