National Initiative for Civic Education (NICE) has offered a three months Computer and Radio programming course to female police officers in Mangochi.
The training is a reply to the request that was made by Mangochi Police Women Network as one way to widen their knowledge and enhance their skills in technologies.
Speaking in an interview, the station officer Morgan Dzonzi Assistant Commissioner of Police encouraged the participants to take the course seriously since it will help them in their daily duties.
“As you all know that we are all compelled to move with the changing world hence the need to be equipped with computer knowledge. Let me take this opportunity to ask our women in uniform to exercise discipline in the 3 months of the course” said Dzozi.
He added by extending his sincerely gratitude to NICE management and staff for their financial and technical support that has made the course possible
Speaking during the meeting District Civic Education Officer (DCEO) Turner Banda narrated that they introduced the programme in May 2018 to give opportunity to women because statistics show that they are few women who have computer knowledge in the district compared to men.
He added that at the end of the course every participant will be awarded a certificate.
Meanwhile the chairlady for Mangochi Police women network inspector Norah Chimwala urged her fellows to put much effort since such opportunity doesn’t come on a silver platter.
She further encouraged them never to undermine themselves and remain the pinnacle of progress in all aspects.
NICE has scheduled the course to be in 3 phases and each phase will accommodate 30 Police Women.
