Residents of Ngoma District have recommitted to ensure that security remains the order of the day in their localities by reporting suspected wrongdoers.
They made the commitment during their meeting held on June 20 in Rurenge Sector.
The meeting attended by Police and other local leaders was presided over by the mayor of Ngoma, Aphrodis Nambaje .
Mayor Nambaje, who commended the role of residents in crime prevention, noted that individual and collective determination and approach, no doubt, can lead to sustainable security.
Inspector of Police (IP) Iyakaremye Nsabimana said that much as police had a responsibility to safeguard public security, “the people also have an obligation to share and give accurate and useful information to assist security organs in containing crime in their respective areas.”
Drug trafficking and abuse, and isolated cases of theft as well as gender related cases, are some of the crimes still common in Ngoma.
IP Iyakaremye urged them to report drug dealers, who use the district as their transit route to other parts of the region and in City of Kigali.
