People’s attitude improving, says officer


people of Kagua-Erave electorate in the Southern Highlands are beginning to realise the importance of development and no longer creating law and order problems, a senior police officer says.
Kagua police station commander Inspector Albert Kori said the attitude of people changed dramatically and they have been involved in rebuilding lives devastated by ongoing tribal fights and other law and order problems in the past years.
“Kagua-Erave district was once a problematic area, yes, that’s true,” he said.
“Now the country must know that they have changed and are no longer what you think they are.
“They want to live an ordinary life like everybody else.
“People are very cooperative with their community leaders and police.”
Kori praised the Southern Highlands provincial government for allocating K10 million to construct police houses and donating vehicles and recruiting policemen and women.
He said these investments have resulted in peace being restored in the area.
Kori also appealed to the people to look after government properties and not to touch them during times of conflict.
“These services are there to help you, you cannot go to other places looking for the same services you have destroyed,” he said.
Southern Highlands police commander Chief Supt Sibron Papoto appealed to the people to look after police personnel as many of them were from other provinces.
He said they were there to maintain peace and people must respect them.
