Police moves to mend ties with Bvumbwe communities

The Malawi Police Service (MPS) has established a special committee to look into the violent riots that happened at Bvumbwe Trading Centre in Thyolo after police assaulted a cyclist.

On September 19,2018 angry community members were involved in running battles with the police after one of the police officers beat up a cyclist for allegedly crossing the roadblock while riding the bicycle.

Limbe Police Station Spokesperson, Constable Patrick Mussa told YFM that the committee aims at reinstating the broken relationship between the two parties.

Mussa said the committee includes police officers, chiefs and members of the community.

According to Mussa, the committee will act as a mouth piece for the people whenever they feel hard done by the police.

Meanwhile, the newly established committee has already started bearing fruits as community members have already started cooperating with the police.
