AS a parent, I cannot thank the police enough for working hard to break the cycle of drug trafficking and abuse throughout the country.
Drug barons target vulnerable youth as their main consumers and this becomes a very dangerous precedent particularly among school-going youth.
Drug abuse leads to a high number of school dropouts, pregnancies and other social vices. Let us not forget that it is also a major cause of road accidents, rape or robbery.
Thus, police’s recent netting of 30 suspected drug dealers shows that the fight is bearing fruit. As a parent with three children who I regularly talk to about drugs, sex among others. I am encouraged to know that the security organs are equally on alert.
Parents, teachers and Rwandans of all walks of life should consequently join the fight against drug trafficking and abuse to ensure that our future leaders are not at risk.
