The Governor of the Southern Province, Marie Rose Mureshyankwano has urged commercial motorcyclists in the region be the eyes and ears of security organs through providing information on anything that could cause insecurities.
The Governor made the call on June 8 while addressing over 400 motorcyclists operating in Nyamagabe District.
The meeting was also attended by the Southern Region Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Gilbert Gumira.
“The best way you can contribute to building a safer community is through working closely with security organs providing information about anything suspicious, but also take part in the implementation of development programmes,” said the Governor.
The governor particularly pointed out that the security situation in the province is calm but emphasized the need to always be on alert against drug dealers and anyone that could be involved in illegal and criminal activities.
In his remarks, ACP Gumira told them that it’s a responsibility for everyone to be cautious of their security.
“Matters of security are not reserved to security institutions, it’s a responsibility for every citizen,” the RPC.
ACP Gumira outlined major crimes including drug abuse, Gender Based Violence, Human Trafficking among others as high impact crimes everyone should fight.
Jerome Nsabimana, the head of commercial motorcycle cooperatives in the Southern Province lauded RNP for reaching out to them, which has improved the working relations between the two parties in community policing.
