He made this statement during a visit to the town – regarded by many as a hotspot for crime – while addressing community members and members of the force.
“I have on several occasions received complaints from residents asking me to remove the whole police force of the town as they are working together with criminals and not doing their work as they are supposed to do.
“Therefore I have come to your town to address you and make sure the police know and understand their duty,” Ndeitunga said.
“Not all police are lazy or do not perform their duties. But they should also enjoy and get the necessary trust and respect from the public,” Ndeitunga said, adding that police officers should change their arrogant behaviour towards the public and assist them to the best of their abilities.
He warned the police against engaging in criminal activities, saying they will be dealt with accordingly and shown the door if necessary.
He added that people who harbour criminals in their houses also contribute to the high crime rate in the town. – Nampa
