In a bid to tighten security along the Mangochi District border, Makanjira Police Post in conjunction with Malawi Defence Force (MDF) have embarked on intensive border patrols targeting criminals along unchartered routes.

The team led by Superintendent Macdonald Kachaje, Makanjira Police Officer ln-charge, and Captain Norman Ngoleka, Camp Commander on August 2, 2021, started patrolling along the border in the area of Traditional Authorities Makanjira and Lulanga.

Kachaje and the team interacted with Malawian communities along the border assuring them of safety and security.

During the interactions, Group Village Headman Mkukula commended the Police and Government in particular for increasing manpower at the border post.

Mkukula cited that the visibility of Mobile Border Police Officers has eased the tension between them and their Mozambican counterparts.

"After the land demarcation saga, we have been living in fear due to atrocities committed by criminals such as shooting incidents just to mention a few but now it's a thing of the past because we have men in uniform around who always protect us," said Mkukula.

According to Sub Inspector, Amina Tepani Daudi, the officers also engaged business personnel at Lukono Trading Centre.

The team urged the business personnel to work hand in hand with the security personnel and continue providing support in the fight against crime along the border.

The villagers have been encouraged to report any suspected criminal activity.

The security team says anyone who will be found violating the laws of Malawi will be dealt with accordingly.
