‘NO ONE ARRESTED FOR FAILURE TO WEAR A FACE MASK’, Malawi Police say

Date:

The Malawi Police Service has clarified that no person was arrested for not wearing face masks as was earlier communicated by the Police Public Relations Office.

A statement from the National Police Spokesperson James Kadadzera clarifies that the news interview the Public Relations Office granted the Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) alleging the arrest of 145 individuals in Chikwawa, for not wearing face masks at a public place was not correct.

“No person has been arrested for not wearing a face mask at a public place anywhere in Malawi” reads the statement in part.

The statement goes on to state that since the new rules and regulations on Covid-19 Prevention, Containment and Management were enforced from August 8, 2020, it is pleasing to note that most Malawians in busy places are complying with the set standards.

Kadadzera also mentioned that the Malawi Police Service and all concerned stakeholders are championing awareness campaigns for Malawians to continue complying with the rules and regulations to protect themselves and others against Covid-19.

The Police has since assured Malawians of its commitment to serving the public according to law and without impinging on their rights.
