Police to discipline drinking officers


In a last gasp to clear its image, the Malawi Police Service (MPS) has moved swiftly and identified three officers seen in a photograph drinking Chibuku while in uniform.

A picture circulating on social media platforms, including WhatsApp and Facebook, shows three police officers in uniform and a civilian woman wearing a police cap.

National Police Public Relations Officer Nicholas Gondwa said in an interview that the three have already been identified and that the other three officers whose caps appear in the picture are yet to be identified.


He said the three are officers from Central Region Police and that they will be quizzed to identify colleagues for disciplinary action.

“Drinking on duty and whilst in uniform is a disciplinary offence. Police has a code of ethics and the officers involved have breached our disciplinary code. Management of police and even the public cannot smile at such misconduct.

“At the moment, we have already commenced disciplinary action against the three,” Gondwa said.
