WINDHOEK, 21 DEC (NAMPA) – President Hage Geingob launched ‘Operation Hornkranz’ aimed at minimising incidents of crime, potential loss of lives and property during this festive season at the Israel Patrick Iyambo Police College here on Friday.
The operation will see the Namibian Police Force, Namibia Defence Force, Namibia Correctional Service and Windhoek City Police working together to combat crime throughout the festive season.
At the launch, Geingob told the officers that he knows they should be resting and spending time with their families, but some have to work to make sure that citizens are behaving and complying with the law.
“I know this is a precious time you’re supposed to spend with your family, but I am depriving you of that. You have to make sure that there will be no curfew in Namibia because of crimes, so I am sending you not to step on snakes but to root out crime,” he said.
Geingob reminded the officers that the country is governed by law and it is their duty to enforce it by patrolling crime prone areas.
He thanked them for a job well done during the year 2018.
