Lake zone regional police chiefs in joint move to fight against crime

​​​​​​​REGIONAL police commanders (RPCs) in lake zone have come up with a new strategy to jointly fight criminal actions including killings.  

Geita RPC Mponjoli Mwaburambo.

The officials reached the agreement yesterday here during the meeting which brought together RPCs and regional criminal officers (RCOs) from Tabora, Shinyanga, Simiyu, Mwanza, Geita and Kagera.

Speaking at the meeting, Geita RPC Mponjoli Mwaburambo said that the police force has a role to ensure that families live in peace by addressing conflicts that arise due to superstitions.

“Superstitious beliefs cause  unnecessary conflicts within families that sometime lead  to killings of innocent people, so we should among other things, educate the public on the importance of avoiding such beliefs,” Mwaburambo noted.

For their parts, the RPC for Simiyu, senior assistant commissioner of police (SACP), Henry Mwaibambe and RCO for Mwanza, senior superintendent of police (SSP), Faustine Mafwele vowed to execute their duties as per professional  ethics and oaths which include protecting people and their properties.

Earlier, head of special operations of the police force, senior assistant commissioner of police (SACP), Mihayo Msikhela urged the officials to strengthen efforts and make sure that they fight against criminals   in their areas.
