Why Kayonza supports community policing


RE: “Umugoroba w’Ababyeyi: Mending broken families in Kamonyi” (The New Times, March 6).

This is a typical example of a homegrown solution; the story leaves me smiling and even prouder to be Rwandan. It is very true that the now popular “Umugoroba w’Ababyeyi” has instilled the spirit of togetherness, a sense of belonging and responsiveness.

We as residents have information on our fingertips regarding all sorts of crimes that happen in our neighbourhoods ranging from conflicting families, drug dealers and abusers to families
that employ minors as domestic workers, and criminals that are wanted for a particular committed crime, among others.

In Kayonza, we also pledge our fullest support by sharing timely and accurate information which is in line with the concept of community policing.
