Choppers will boost war on crime - Tsimako

Tshimako was speaking at the end of a "20km walk for development" held to raise funds for the construction of a shelter (leobo) at the Mathangwane Village Kgotla last Saturday.

The police chief said as the helicopters are not enough to cover the entire country, it is "operationally viable that at first, they should mostly cover crime-prone areas" and attend to other regions on a call-out basis.

He said they are currently engaged in training operational personnel to prepare them for the challenges that lie ahead.

In regard to the fund-raising walk, Tshimako applauded residents of Mathangwane Village in the Central District, for demonstrating the spirit of self-reliance to develop their village.

He told the residents that as one of the fastest growing villages in the country, Mathangwane deserves a descent shelter that meets today's standards.

The police commissioner expressed concern at the rising levels of some crimes, particularly those that are intrusive in nature such as house break-ins.

However, he said there has

been a decrease in robberies, which have always been a problem in the country.

He said that Mathangwane Village has had its fair share of crime challenges as statistics indicate that cases of stock theft and break-ins are major concerns perpetuated by criminal syndicates comprising residents and others from Francistown.

Mathangwane is about 20km northwest of Francistown.

He also thanked residents for their cooperation with the police in supplying information that led to the arrest of some criminals.

He said this is the spirit that must be nurtured because it will help police succeed in their fight against criminals.

Giving a vote of thanks, Mathangwane North councillor Ipuseng Chikanda thanked the police chief for having found it fitting "to come and assist us in our endeavour to raise funds for the construction of the shelter".

He also saluted Tatitown police officers for the cordial working relationship with residents of the village and their promptness in attending to cases whenever called upon.
