MORE than 200 youths in West New Britain recently surrendered to police pledging to stop their life of crime.
The province’s community policing unit facilitated the surrender working with the youths and their communities.
WNB Governor Francis Maneke said good governance and law and order in the province would see positive changes among the people.
Maneke launched the Kimbe urban local level government (LLG) youth rehabilitation programme last Friday at the Life Outreach Ministries church in Kimbe.
More than 200 youths from all eight council wards of the Kimbe urban LLG surrendered their lives to God and acknowledged law and order representatives and Maneke as the head of the province.
“The surrender of more than 200 criminals, rascals, robbers, murders, rapists and drug addicted youths of Kimbe urban local level government has brought freedom, light and blessings to the people,” Maneke said.
The ceremony was a major event in Kimbe.
Stakeholders, including Kimbe town authorities, ward councillors, community policing officers, Life Outreach church ministries international representatives, PP Management Training Institute, the WNB business community, churches and community leaders gathered to support the programme.
