Homeland Minister Jean Sendeza to Resign Over Police Recruitment Saga

Evicted MCP youths

Minister of Homeland Security Jean Sendeza, who is also Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Senior Official, said she is ready to resign from her ministerial position if implicated in the police recruitment scandal.

Sendeza made the statement on Tuesday evening in an interview with Times Radio barely a day after Limbe and Mtakataka Police Training Schools evicted over 79 MCP’s youths who were sent by MCP to join the country’s police service.

It is reported that a senior member of MCP from Lilongwe, who claimed to have been delegated by the Minister, was charging the unsuspecting youths up to K150 000 as fees to have places in the latest police recruitment for training.

 “I will resign if implicated,” said Sendeza; adding that Police has since launched a manhunt for the conman.

Reports indicate that the party through its headquarters stamped fake papers for their youths to be admitted at the school but the school administration had to put their feet down to political pressure.’

Meanwhile, one of the political analysts James Kaunda says MCP and President Chakwera have come to power to destroy the very fundamental “governance architectures” that that made “police reformed” under multiparty dispensation.

Recently, pictures of some new police recruits were awash on social media with some observers alleging that they were below the recruitment age.

  1. It is really a shame that the country is being run by conmen after being entrusted by unsuspecting Malawians as leaders. Since MCP and their bedfellows stole an election under the auspices of our courts, there has never been anything worth writing home about other than sheer scandal after another. It is a shame that even those learned people in the country have chosen to bury their heads in the sand.

    This is ‘Payback Time’ after having forced their dirty arses into government. God the Almighty is slowly unleashing His unprecedented wrath on the ‘Fake Pastor’ together with his friends who can’t even read the messages written on the walls. It is therefore not surprising that instead of running a government, the whole state machinery is all the time on the road touring villages in the name of crop inspections, a dead practice which was forced down Malawian’s throat during the one party regime. Today we can witness a confused leader viewing ‘Therere and Nzimbe’ on the roadside and not in the field. The question making rounds in sane minded people remains “Is this government surely having advisors?” At the rate things are going, come 2025 even if members of the opposition choose not to go out to vote, Chakwera will still miserably lose. MCP and Tonse masquerades are a mere waste of time, space and our money.
