December 2018 - Moni aliyense
Greetings to all visitors of our website in this, the run-up to Christmas. It is still the quiet time of the year and fortunately, to the best of my knowledge, no one of us in this current period has shed their mortal coil. This in itself is good enough news so it remains for me only to wish you and your families a very happy and healthy Christmas. The Nyasaland Police Association survives and is strong enough I now believe to carry on with or without my administration. So, until 2019 and thereafter, enjoy a peaceful time and look after yourselves.
Kindest regards and best wishes to you all.
Christopher and Elizabeth Bean - 1st December 2018


Thank you Christopher, however be assured that your part in the administration of the Association remains crucial. Christmas, yes indeed, here in the UK it is greatly hyped up, preceded by Black Friday and Cyber Monday in late November trumpeting (alleged) massive discounts. Well in advance the TV is littered with advertisements tempting children in particular. Parents are under pressure to buy expensive toys leading to many falling into long term debt as a result. In Malawi with 80% of the population Christian it is also a time of celebration but much less commercialised with focus mainly on the religious aspect. Few Malawians have the finance for a "western" type Christmas of gifts and feasting. There may be some dancing, some singing of Christmas songs and their Christmas fare may be rice instead of nsima and a piece of chicken to go with their usual relish. Whatever, may they have a fine festive season with good health and happiness and may there be a prosperous future ahead.

Musical Interlude
It's December and Christmas is with us so it has to be a carol. However, whatever faith you may have, or if any at all, this rendering of Silent Night by Méav, one of the original soloists in the musical ensemble Celtic Woman, has to be as good as any so far recorded.
