While the streets of Malawi are invaded by traffic police and fellow agents from the Road Traffic and Safety Directorate who act as arrest, investigators, prosecutors, judges, cashiers, and bankers, the rate of road traffic accidents continue to haunt the nation.
“It probably speaks of how corrupt the nation is otherwise it is a pity that statistics continue to increase when we have law enforcers as early as 5am up to late hours.
“Our systems are rotten and if the government will not step in then we are giving Malawians a raw deal as the law enforcers are just there to reap off the poor Malawians,” observed a Manja resident in Blantyre.
Her sentiments were coming at the time it has been reported that road carnage have become the worst killers in the country after Malaria and HIV.
About 117 people are reported to have died in road accidents in August this year and that as of the first week of September 25 people have already perished.
