New investigations by The Malawi Star have established that the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has recruited 300 of its own members into the current the police force recruitment.

Exclusive information provided to this publication reveals that the Malawi Police recruitment process is turning into an exclusive club that caters to members of the ruling political party.

The newly released police recruit list comprises 300 cadets who are being inducted into the force without mandatory written and oral interviews.

Information that this publication has gathered reveals that the DPP has hand-selected these cadets from the Southern, Central and Northern regions of Malawi with the intention of using them in the coming elections.

Meanwhile, The Malawi Star has seen a copy of an offer letter addressed to one of the recruits which does not have his physical or postal address. Inside sources have described this as an anomaly because all official letters are expected to have all the required contact information which includes a postal address.

Although the Malawi Police Service is offering the official letters to the recruits formally, evidently the recruitment was done by human resource officers at the Police Training School. The shortlisted names were sent to police head office in Lilongwe to be entered into the government system and sent back to three regions.

An inside source within the police said, “Surprisingly, the new recruits were supposed to be given their offer letters through the regional head offices where they attended oral interviews. But some police top officials and those from the DPP have replaced some names with their relatives and cadets who did not attend both written and oral interviews.  After short listing, names of those qualified have been replaced by the DPP cadets. It’s a planned move by the party.”

According to information at hand, each region has selected approximately 100 cadets to be trained in the force and these will be used as a mechanism to provide security during the 2019 elections.

Although the publication could not independently get hold of those facilitating the move, it has established that Senior Deputy Commissioner of Police Mr Mangani has recruited some of his relatives that did not attend any interviews.

Whereas, Senior Commissioner of Police Mpulula has recruited eight relatives from his home village in Zomba.  The eight recruits are believed to have avoided any interviews.

The Malawi Police Service conducted written and oral interviews on the 12th and 17th of April. The new recruits are expected to report for training in all Police Training Schools on May 16, 2016 with only a grace period of two days.

As we went to the press, The Malawi Star could not get hold of the National Police spokesperson Nicholas Gondwa for comment on the matter.

  1. When other leaders are trying to do the right things some stupid leaders are doing the opposite, God help us. What is the problem with this race called black. If it’s not repression its corruption. Big salute to Tanzanian leadership.

  2. Ngati alemba ma kadet a zigawo zonse palibe vuto, ife tili ku PP anatitenga mosavuta. If u want employment align urself to employers, be a relative, a royal & disciplined person. Ngakhale za chalitchi amafuna khristu wolimbikira. Merit doesnt work all the time in recruitment process esp in politics. What matters is security to political leaders, apopo ndiye intelligence ili bo.

  3. So you are practising discrimination you as real Malawians to be recruited suspected to be supporters and you belong to a party that you voted for let them make such a witch hunt risk being dragged to court for character assassination and discrimination including your political Policeman zazii!

  4. Asamatuluse Vacancy Azingotenga Achipan Ndi Azibale Awo Basi, Osamazunza Anthu Chotele Kuwononga Transport Nthawi And Kuwafinya Mapwala Ndi Mabele Pachabe Zoona, Mulungu Sakusekelelan Muwona.

  5. Uchitsiru kutaya nthawi yogwirira ntchito iwowo ukuwakumbawo di ma refugees vimaso wati tong’o news yanji kukhalira nthano ndi miseche poti ukationetsa ma cadet ako wasiyako wa youth ako news Yopanda nzeru awachotse umubweretse poyera wa Police yo akationetse ID yaucadet demet ya anthu ukuwakumbawo

  6. Thats the beauty with malawians.The majority of the comments are in chicewa which is not the case with zambians.Those recruited to be police officers are just rumoured to be aligned to the party in govt.It can be false sometyms.So thoz of u affected shud just take their tym & wait for God’s tym as it is the best

  7. man this is unethical reporting..why do people come up with news sites yet they aren’t professional journalist ur..ur aren’t supposed to make pipo believe in rumors there isn’t life in this article how true is it..no quotes no comment from either side concerned..where is the evidence for us to blieve u?..that latter can be a forgery and the words in this article aren’t thos of the concerned parties..instead are those of the one writting this..if we take u to court on this how could u defend yoself?

  8. Recruiting people by the DPP government it is something which is recommended by my mature people but useless people they cant, so if the government fail u will be the first against the government shame good job mutharica

    • I think there should be differences between a party and government. Malawi is not DPP. Police are run by our taxes not DPP money. To people who are myopic and overzealous can not differentiate these two elements. Malawi is for anyone who is in a party or opposition. People like u are glutons. U just think of UA own. What if another party wins elections, should they be chased away?

  9. Pitani tiyamba kuba tiphana kulonda komweko ndimfuti panyopanu amene mwalowetsa abale anu nonse chonsecho sanapangenao interview mbolo zanu mwandakwiitsa. Enawa ndi ma blindfollowers I dont see anything to smile about or to support zoona ukakondwe kt boma lakhonza polemba a Dpp omwe sadapange intrv nyini/mboro

  10. Kkkkkkkkk ili ndiye bodza leni leni, How did the interviewers know your political parties you belong? Is all police officers full of all Dpp supporters? If so, then 2019 izawinanso coz ili ndi anthu ambiri oisatira ndipo musazati mfwiii, Next tym akamazafuna kulemba muzandiuze coz ine ndiwa Dpp koma ndilibe certificate iliyonse i dnt go to xul, ma papers omwe ndili nawo ndi a Ungaliba kulowetsa Jando ndi wa Coffin and Joinery basi sinanga mwati bola kungoti ine ndiwa Dpp, kkkkkkk every failure has an excuse.

  11. I attended both written and oral interviews.It was a suprise when i heard that people were going for training yesterday.I regret having attended the interviews because this was my seventh time.

    • Do you know the implications? They will serve the party instead of the Nation. Tribalism and regionalism have done enough damages to add this on.
      It simply means the party will be controlling the people. Remember the fiasco of aiming the MYP? Next time it will be the Army. Then that will be it. We have to think of the future. Since these are political recruits,and they dont hesitate to brandish zikwanje openly, they will have access to guns!

  12. CONGRATULATIONS MY DPP!!! WERE THE CADETS MALAWIANS? YES! QUALIFIED? YES! SO WHERE IS THE PROBLEM?? YOU WANT ACHINYAMATAWA ASAPANGIDWE APPLAISE??

  14. when the police recruited over 7 blue eagles netball players as thanks giving, the newspapers wrote many thanked the police you didn’t complain becoz you saw many of your people in. now they have taken what they deem the best you are creating nuisance. I thought you can use your expertise in ICT web authoring to open a company to employ your relatives and party diehards also. so Malawians we have a lot of time to waste? why?

    • Awo a blue eagles, it was lyk an internal vacancy. Did u c any vacancy announcement about it? Izi anthu more than 50thousand adalembera and the vacancy was announced. Kutenga ma cadet si vuto kma zaonjeza coz amayenera kuwatenga nthawi ina not this tym. Are trying to politicise evry govt institution? Mbuzi za wanthu inu.

  15. Kodi enafe umwayi tidzaupeza monga uwu ? vuto ndilakuti: mpila sindimatha kusewera,zandale ndili nazo kutali,ndilibe ngakhale m’bale yemwe anagwirapo kapenanso akugwila ntchito ku MPS koma certificate ya form ndili nayo.Odala ndini kumalawi muli ndiokuyenelezani kupeza mwayi wantchito mwachinyengo.

  17. What better lessons can the Mutharikas learn from their Zimbabwean despot?It is true we need change but not the Zimbabwe way, no, a thousand times no.Our people have suffered enough and we say enough is enough.
    We have a lot young progressive people who can take this lovely small country of ours to greater and higher levels than such it dry

  18. Mmmmmmmm,kodi a Malawi tidakhala bwanji?nkhaniyitu nja m’kunkhuniza,tatieni a Malawi tipewe kulowetsa ndale paliponse.Mwachitsanzo omwe atengedwa kuno ku Mwanza,onse ali ndi zoyenereza kukapanga za police ndipo kuonjezera apo enanso anali aphunzitsi,ndie mufuna kundiuza kuti aphunzitsiwa anali ma Cadets a DPP?shame!

    • Inu welenganinso nkhaniyi simudamve bwino!akamba za Ku mwanza pamenepa?so if Mwanza is OK basi tipange generalise kuti Malawi yonse ili bwino?this is a national issue not district based!and how can u know as if u were part of the interviews?can u know all that have been selected?and how they were selected?

  19. Duties of a police officer 1 serve the life of the sitting president hence Mutharika so if they recruit those of U who r not happy with him what will be the news of tomorrow? Those who did security studies whether in malawi or abroad can comment better

  20. Ndimaganiza mumalembapo za nzeru koma zammutu zenizeni. Iwe ndi cadet wandani? Alembedwawo ndi akuti? Mesa ndi a Malawi? Bwanji osasangalala kuti malova 300 tsopano ali pa ntchito? Mtima wa nsanje, kaduka sukuthandizani. Musalowetse ndale chilichonse
