NENO-(MaraviPost)–Despite numerous challenges facing Neno Police, the law enforcers  are on record as having initiated creative programs in combating crime and attacks on people with albinism in the district. In this regard, Deputy Commissioner of Police in the Southern Region, Teleza Nankhuni, applauded the police for their commitment and dedication to uphold law and order in the isolated district and the country at large.Nankhuni made the remarks on Sunday at Neno Community ground during the finals of the Neno Community Policing Bonanza, which was organized with an aim of soliciting funds for the community police and also sharing importantmessages from the police during the matches.

Nankhuni said what the police are doing is a very commendable job and asked the community to continue working together with the police.

“What I see here is a clear testimony that Neno Police are committed to make the district safe and they deserve a complimentary part on their back. It is my sincere appeal to all people gathered here to help them in pursuit of the maintenance of law and order and the preservation of the security of the district,” she said.

Nankhuni also asked the residents to protect people with albinism by reporting any suspicious acts to police.

“Currently, there are wave of attacks on our brothers and sisters with albinism. Let us be alert and protect them from any harm. These people stay with us in our homes so we are the first people to provide protection,” she said.

In his speech, Southern Region Community Policing Coordinator, Alex Simenti, said good working relationship between the police and community is vital for maintenance of law and order.

“Fighting crime requires concerted effort between the police and the community and that is why community policing was introduced in the country in 1997. Criminals leave in our communities,hence community policing is an essential pillar in combating crime.

“I thank the Neno Police Officier In-charge and the entire staff for coming up with this bonanza and I have total conviction that it has achieved it intended purpose as I can see this stadium is full to its capacity,” said Simenti.

Speaking earlier, Neno District Football Association chairperson Steve Donda pleaded with the residents to help the police in fighting crime in the district.

“As residents of the district, let us take part in combating crime. If you are land lord please furnish the village headman with details of your tenants. If you have received a visitor, the chief must also be informed. This will help us identifying some people who come in our villages with evil intentions,” said Donda.

At the function, District Commissioner Memory Kaleso, pledged to buy 1000 whistles worth K350 000 for the Community Police. Members of Parliament for Neno north Leonard Lonzo and Neno South Mary KhemboPledged K1 million each towards the community police activities.

Inside the pitch, NenoVission FC taught Neno United football lessons by thrashing them 4 goals to 1. The thrilling encounter, which was live on Neno FM saw Vision goalkeeper Francis Kunkeyani ditching a superb performance by denying the United’s penetration in several attempts.

Vision went away with K75 000 and a trophy for being champions while Neno United pocketed K35 000 as runners-up.
