Inspector General (IG) of Malawi Police Service (MPS), I would step up investigations into the violence that claimed lives of a civilian and one of my officers at Goliati Trading Centre in Thyolo to demonstrate the service’s willingness to ensure violence-free tripartite elections on May 20.
If I were the IG, I would appreciate that unless the police investigates the issue to its conclusion, the blame game between the ruling People’s Party (PP) and the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) will continue.
How I wish I were the big shot that is Lot, because I would also realise that when the whole President’s convoy is stoned, then something is terribly wrong as regards security.
If only I were my man Lot Dzonzi, I certainly would appreciate that the way police handles the issue will speak volumes about its seriousness about curbing violence ahead of the tripartite polls.
Indeed, if I were the IG, I would realise that when PP leader Joyce Banda and her DPP counterpart Peter Mutharika are involved in a blame game on who started the violence, it is the duty of the police to get to the bottom of the issue and bring to book the perpetrators.
Well, that is if only I were my dude Lot Dzonzi. Fortunately enough, I am not the IG.
