“You know the police gave you a toll free number to report any thing you think is against the law. Always be vigilant to anything you think can cause an accident or bring insecurity,” he said.

The governor added that this is to ensure peace in the nation.

Several people in Huye town told Chimpreports that they are ready to help the police bring about road safety.

“I can request all my fellow road users, to obey the police and follow the rules of road,” said Alphonse Havugimana, one of the boda boda riders in Huye town.

The Southern Province police spokesperson, Chief Superintendent Hubert Gashagaza urged the drivers to recognize that road safety is their duty and not the police’s.

“They are some drivers who drink and drive, over speed leading to road accidents. However, they should be reminded that road safety is their duty, to protect their lives and the passenger’s. So it is not only the police’s duty, but for all the road users,” affirmed Gashagaza.

CSP Gashagaza noted that the police has raised a number of traffic officers on the roads to remind everyone to follow the rules of the road.

During this police week, several campaigns on anti-domestic violence, anti-drugs and anti-alcohol campaign, anti-fire outbreak campaign, environmental protection campaign and assistance to vulnerable persons will be carried out.

The week will be closed on Sunday, June 16 with Police Day celebrations.
