Cops deserve proper accommodation, says Kawana

HOME Affairs Minister Albert Kawana said that women and men in uniform deserve proper and adequate accommodation. “For that reason,” he said, “it has become standard practice that wherever a new police station is built, barracks for both males and females are also included.” Kawana made these remarks at the official inauguration of a new police station in Endola, Ohangwena Region on Friday.

The N$42.6 million police station consists of a charge office, a radio room, one server room, an armoury/record room, and a police cell block (with three cells and a doctor’s consulting room). The police barracks comprise two two-bedroom semi-detached units and two blocks of fourteen rooms (eight for males and six for females). “The station is also equipped with two vehicles for members to effectively respond to the community’s complaints,” said the minister.

Kawana added that the inauguration of the police station occurred a day after the handing over of the upgraded Onhuno Road Traffic Check Point, also in the Ohangwena Region, as a testament to the Namibian Government’s commitment to improved service delivery and quality law enforcement. “It is also for this reason that the Central Government continues to prioritize the planning and budgeting of capital projects, including the construction of police facilities such as the one we are inaugurating here today,” he said.

He emphasized that having a police station in Endola will undoubtedly ensure that the police execute their mandate by bringing services closer to the people. He appealed to men and women in uniform who will be using the newly built facilities to jealously safeguard them against any form of vandalism and further ensure that they are preserved for future generations.
