BURERA – The Minister of Internal Security, Sheikh Mussa Fazil Harerimana, has hailed the Community policing committees for the vital role they play in mobilising the residents and bringing about security, peace and order.
He was speaking during the closing of a two-week civic training (Ingando), for over 900 sub committees of the Community policing groups at the Peace and Leadership Centre in Nkumba, Burera district.

The group pledged to continue preventing crimes and fighting gender based violence.
“The lessons have impacted on our lives because we learnt how to root out some of the crimes in society, including corruption and injustice,” said Emiliene Ndacyayisenga from Gisagara district.
