Chakwera also ordered Secretary to his office to bring all heads of state agencies together and discuss issues of proper coordination to ensure proper coordination between them.

He further ordered Inspector General of Police to refer the conduct of the two Deputy Inspector Generals to Police Service Commission for disciplinary action following an act of what he calls insubordination for refusing the President’s order to have Ms. Chizuma released unconditionally after being arrested.
