The Malawi Police Service has hailed support towards advancement of Forensic evidence in the country.
This has been said during the end of two weeks training on DNA evidence collection for Police officers at the Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources—LUANAR Bunda Campus.
Deputy Inspector General of Police Duncan Mwapasa said the expertise in forensic auditing will help solve criminal cases in the country.
Mwapasa said with the old conventional ways of collecting evidence it posed a challenge to see that justice is served.
He then urged the officers to be diligent in ensuring that the samples collected are well stored for analysis.
LUANAR’s Deputy Vice Chancellor Professor Louis Dzimbiri said they will strive to ensure that ethics are followed in analyzing the DNA samples.
Dzimbiri said the institution, through its avenues like the Biotechnology Lab is working to be relevant to society as a whole not just the academia.
The course is being carried out with support from the European Union Chilungamo project.
