Police in Bugesera District have urged commercial motorcyclists to join hands with security organs in keeping law and order.

They were also cautioned against facilitating criminals by either transporting them or their illegal goods.

The call was made recently during anti-crime awareness campaign with over 70 motorcyclists operating in Gashora and Rweru sectors.

Inspector of Police (IP) Jean Bosco Bayingana and Assistant Inspector of Police (AIP) Aimable Uwineza, the commander of Gashora and Rweru police stations respectively, engaged the motorcyclists in discussions aimed at building strong partnership in detecting and sharing real time information on criminals including those who use their transport services.

The meeting also attended by local leaders in the two sectors tackled loopholes in fighting and preventing crimes and effective means to jointly fill the gaps.

IP Bayingana reminded motorcyclists that the two sectors that lies in the borders with Burundi are prone to criminal activities including those that are cross-border in nature such as motorcycle theft.

He warned them against abetting crime because they may be also made culpable in the crime.

AIP Uwineza, on the hand, appealed to them build a strong bond with the police to ensure that no one uses the area as a transit route for any wrongdoing.

Elysee Bakundukize, one of the leaders of commercial motorcyclists in Bugesera, pledged strong partnership to report anyone they suspect to be involved in unlawful and criminal activities including drug dealers and smugglers.
