The mayor of Huye District, Eugene Kayiranga Muzuka has hailed motorcyclists operating in the district for their partnership with security organs and local leaders in maintaining peace and security.
The mayor was addressing motorcyclists on March 10th, focusing on building stronger collaboration in crime detection and prevention through information sharing.
The commercial motor cyclist through their umbrella organizations – COTAMOHU and Intambwe Motors, were urged to work with security organs and remain vigilant in sharing vital information that might lead to sustaining the existing security.
“There are also wrongdoers within your cooperatives, who connive with criminals to cause havoc and steal or transport stolen items in communities, and also traffic drugs. These are acts we must fight together,” Muzuka says.
The District Police Commander, SP Jean Marie Vianney Karegeya, also commended the motorcyclists especially in the fight against drug traffickers and thieves through information sharing.
“Some of your colleagues, either here in Huye or in other parts of the country have been arrested as accomplices in crime. You should put internal measures to distance yourselves from such bad elements, and report them,” the DPC tells the motorcyclists.
After the meeting, leaders of commercial motor cyclists expressed their commitment to working in hands with police and local authorities to sustain the prevailing security.
