NU cops are nice guys…pool cash for orphans

BLANTYRE, April 7, 2014 (Maravi Post) – Imagine this—with a poor salary and a reputation that cops are there to arrest you, Ntcheu police officers did something unthinkable in Malawi the other day.

They dug deep into their pockets and with the help of their regional headquarters who also chipped in some cash, forked out a cool K100,000  to support some 19 orphans with food items, clothes and other essentials.

These orphans are the ones whose parents died after they once worked in the police force. In marketing, they call this social responsibility.

Ntcheu police boss Chikondi Chingadza was quoted by MANA as saying the donation was meant to “reduce the impact of orphan-hood.”

“We appreciate that these children face a lot of of challenges which impact negatively on their livelihoods hence our decision to present these gifts,” Chingadza, who is the senior assistant commissioner of Police, said according to MANA.

Delifa Mpala, one of the widows  who received the items on behalf of the orphans, had kind words for the police officers, calling on other organisations to emulate what the cops had done to help the underprivileged.

Malawi’s 11,000 police officers are poorly paid, averaging a salary of K30, 000 per month.
