The Mayor Kirehe district Gerard Muzungu has hailed the contribution of the public in sustaining security and aiding arrest of criminals.
He particularly lauded Rwanda National Police officers operating from the district for the display of professionalism in the investigation and eventually arresting criminals.
Mayor Muzungu made the remarks in Nasho sector recently while presenting to the public stolen and recovered irrigation equipment.
Present at the occasion was district police commander Superintendent of Police (SP) James Rutaremara who also thanked residents for collaborating with security agencies in preventing crime thought community policing practices.
The irrigation control panel was stolen months back and it had hindered irrigation activities at the Nasho irrigation project.
The theft of the water pumping machine had affected the irrigation system of the ten hectare maize plantation, district officials said
SP Rutaremara told residents that; “if it was not from your collaboration our investigations couldn’t have yielded to the recovery”
It was recently reported that Niyomugabo a former security guard at Nasho maize irrigation scheme and a commercial motorcyclist in Kigali, together with Fred Asiimwe, 37 and Jean Baptist Dushimirimana, 23, connived and stole the water pumping machine.
Nasho and its environs are one of the places with generally low rains, where commercial farming largely depends on irrigation.
