Member of Parliament for Thyolo Central, Ben Phiri on Thursday donated a set of jerseys to Thyolo Police Station football team to help the team compete favorably in the ongoing Commissioner’s Trophy.
In an interview with Malawi News Agency (Mana), Phiri said the donation was one way of encouraging the police officers to participate in sporting activities because this will help to promote their physical fitness.
Phiri said promoting sporting activities among the security officers will help to keep their bodies in shape; hence, will work effectively in fighting against crime in the district.
Thyolo Police Station Officer In-Charge, Isaac Norman applauded the legislator for the donation; saying sporting activities among the officers will promote and strengthen relationship between communities and police officers because the two parties will have the opportunity to interact socially.
He appealed to other well-wishers in the country to emulate the example by Phiri, noting it is the responsibility of citizen to fight against crime in the country.
