Malawi Police officers get crowd control training in Egypt where rioters have been killed in the past

Cairo, Egypt, September 23, 2015: Deputy Director of Police responsible for operations, Senior Superintendent Gladson Chipumphula has come out top of the class in a three week Anti-riot for police commanders training program in Cairo, Egypt. 

Egyptian Police are known to use rough tactics against protestors so this is where we chose to send our Police for training.


 The Following was a report earlier this year in an Arab News Paper: “Egyptian riot police have fired teargas canisters and birdshots at the supporters of the banned Muslim Brotherhood movement who have been holding rallies in the cities of Minya al-Qamh and Kafr al-Dawar, situated in Sharqiya and Beheira, respectively. Several protesters sustained injuries and two were arrested during the police attacks”.




The training organised by the government of the Arab Republic of Egypt, brought together 20 participants from Arab, English and French speaking countries across Africa.


Speaking to Malawi News Agency, Chipumphula said in the global village that the world has become, the training was the best he has ever attended because the curriculum was of international standards.


“We were trained in anti-terrorism, riot dispersal, field craft, explosives and how to manage an operation. Issues of terrorism affects the whole world, we cannot tackle the issue in isolation. 

This training brought together officers from many countries and we shared experience on how to address challenges we all face.


“Malawi will benefit greatly from this training program because it will help us plan in advance so that whenever we are faced with such challenges, we’ll be able to handle it professionally. On return to Malawi, we will make sure that we implement whatever we have learned here,” He said.


On being awarded as the outstanding student, Chipumphula said it was an honour not only for him but also for Malawi and expressed hope that it will be an inspiration for fellow Malawian police officers who attend similar training.


Six Malawian police officers took part in the training program. Senior Superintendent Andrew Kamoto, Superintendent Lazarous Walumbe, and Inspector Mary Kilembe took part in the Anti-terrorism program while Senior Superintendent Chipumphula, Superintendent Moses Mpindeni and Assistant Superintendent Grace Ligula Phiri were in the Anti-riot for police commanders program.

Meanwhile, Egyptian Ambassador to Malawi, Maher El-Adawy has congratulated the graduating police officers. He said the cooperation between Malawi and Egypt through such training programs increases the understanding and opportunities for the people of both countries.


“My message to all the beneficiaries of the capacity building programs offered by Egypt for Malawi is firstly, to share their newly learnt skills and knowledge with colleagues at the different Malawi work places.


“Secondly, utilize the newly acquired confidence from these state-of-the-art programs to widen the networking domain not only in Egypt but all over the world. Thirdly, remember that at the end of the day the goal is for Malawi and Africa to develop,” he said.

El-Adawy added that the training also provides a good basis to stimulate openings in bilateral and even continental trade and investment within Africa.
