STATE OF PROTECTION AND SECURITY
The security and safety situation in our District as a whole is good; and this is due to the presence of participatory protection through community policing. This important initiative is permanent by involving the militia in terms of protection by recognizing, caring for and valuing them.
However, the district continues to face frequent incidents of criminal offenses including armed robbery, burglary, motorcycle theft, livestock theft, house fires, etc. The killings in this District are often the result of revenge, superstitious beliefs and a few cases of property rivalry.
Following this situation the district is cooperating with the neighboring Districts in a strategy to strengthen Defense and security and exchange of malicious information among us and the Districts around us.
