Police in Kicukiro have urged the Muslim community in the district to play a major role in community policing and appealed to them to promote dialogue in addressing pressing issues.

The call was made on July 02 during a meeting that brought together 150 Muslim youth from Gatenga Sector, where the District community liaison officer(DCLO) , Inspector of Police (IP) Hamdun Twizeyimana urged them to become more involved in community policing activities. “We live in an era that is characterized with different types of crimes; the faster the world evolves the faster crimes evolve too, this is why all categories of the society should be part of community policing to ensure we are always a step ahead of criminals,” said IP Twuzeyimana.

In soliciting the support of Muslim youths in crime prevention, IP Twuzeyimana informed them that a community marred with crime can never develop. “If you want to develop and achieve more than what you have, you should be part of crime prevention and you can do that by sharing information with security organs whenever you suspect anyone who may be engaged in criminal activities,” he said. The DCLO told Muslim youths that as long as they are part of the society they should own the responsibility of ensuring community safety.

The youth were also reminded that they have a responsibility of fighting against crimes like drug abuse, radicalism and drug abuse. The Head of the Islamic community in Kicukiro Sheikh Ismail Nsengiyumva urged youths to be patriots and also take part in all developmental activities.
