Abandoned Maputo schools and the despair of residents - Watch
The Police of the Republic of Mozambique (PRM) will continue to count on the contribution of the Armed Forces for the Defence of Mozambique (FADM) in the fight against crime and to guarantee the security of people who work in the food industry.
This was the promise made last Saturday by PRM Commander-In-Chief Bernardino Rafael at a rally in the KaMubukwana municipal district of Maputo celebrating the PRM’s 43rd anniversary celebrations on Thursday under the motto “The PRM: Serving the citizen better through law and order, fighting and preventing crime and corruption”.
His pronouncement responds to the concern of citizens who point to the small number of police combating an increasing wave of criminal activity in the neighbourhood.
“As an alternative, we will have to join up with other defence and security forces, in this case the Armed Defence Forces of Mozambique, to increase our performance. In fact, we have done this in large-scale operations with positive results. We will strengthen this partnership so as to continue to improve the security of people and their assets. We are aware that there is a shortage of personnel, but we will do everything we can to direct more agents to the neighbourhoods,” Rafael said.
Increasing the number of police stations and police posts was another measure pointed out by the PRM commander-in-chief, meaning citizens no longer had to travel long distances to present their concerns.
“In addition, each citizen must him or herself be an agent of law and order, denouncing all potential criminals. If we are all police, then we can control crime. If we do not denounce criminals, we will always be shouting about the same problems,” he concluded.Source: Notícias
