What Tumpale Mwakibinga wrote pales to the insults Malawians are subjected to everyday by Mr Mchacha and Jeffrey. What do the Police do? Nothing. What about APM? He smiles as his lieutenants entertain him with their insults. We do not need the kind of police we have today. After May 21, the Police Service should undergo serious cleansing. Get lead of the unqualified DPP stooges masquerading as policemen. This is the most inefficient police, it is more of a DPP Cadet organization and the most corrupt institution in the country when the contrary is expected.
