Mozambique and United Nations sign agreement to combat drug trafficking
Border police in Cabo Delgado yesterday took possession of two motorbikes to help them patrol the border with neighbouring Tanzania.
According to local police commander Joaquim Sive, the bikes were allocated to the fourth company of the Border Police stationed at the Namoto crossing point in the district of Palma, which borders Tanzania’s Mutuara region.
According to Sive, this section of the border experiences great pressure from illegal immigration, and the strengthening of surveillance capacity will help the police to control the flow.
Minister of the Interior adviser Teófilo Nhampossa, talking to the media on behalf of the minister, said the allocation of these resources was part of the sector’s efforts to ensure the proper functioning of the border.
The Border Police and the Migration Service are on high alert against the possibility of cross-border organized crime network personnel crossing the border disguised as tourists, and units in the area have been instructed to provide closer surveillance of the border.
Nhampossa appealed to the police to look after their new motorbikes properly so that they would last longer and carry out vital work in defense of national sovereignty.Source: Noticias
