We’ve had more than four health centres burgled into, sick persons who were in the hospitals terrorised, their medications taken away, money that was meant to help them recover in the hospital taken away, the medications of the health centres taken away.
We’ve had delegations that have been burgled and the private homes of individuals plus some of our young girls being raped even within the day by a group of young men who have decide not to go to school and take a new job of stealing, terrorising, drug consumption.
The population has been frightened, they’ve been complaining and so in our usual security dispositions we took measures. Today I’m congratulating the security services for all the efforts they have done for us to get hold of some of them because some are still on the run.
I want to assure the population of Mbengwi and Momo that they should have confidence in their security elements. It is also thanks to some of you that we got the right information. I’m encouraging you people to continue with the collaboration that you have with the administration and the security forces so that we can carry out our activities and businesses in a serene atmosphere.
We can sleep and know that tomorrow we will get up because some of these young men, what they’ve started might equally lead to the dead of innocent citizens. We will hand the over to ybe justice department for justice to take its course. We’ve called you here today to come and be witnesses, to know that the security forces are working. Have faith and collaborate with them for all of us to have a peaceful Momo Division and a peaceful Mbengwi in particular. Once more I thank you”.
