In a bid to ensure that our rural communities are and feel safe, Mahikeng police in collaboration with Community Police Forum (CPF), visited local farmers around Miga, Ikopeleng, Sekai plots, and Dimorogwane as well as Tsetse villages as part of rural safety campaign on Thursday, 19 November 2020.

Cattle posts were also visited and farm owners reminded about the importance of brand marking their livestock whilst pamphlets were distributed to that effect.

In addition, members of the community were sensitised about Gender Based Violence (GBV) and encouraged to report all related incidents to the police even if they do it anonymously.

Finally, the public was informed about the firearm amnesty and urged to surrender all illegal / unwanted firearms, ammunition and firearm parts to their nearest police station without fear of being prosecuted.

Meanwhile, Wolmaransstad police together with the North West Muslim Aids Programme, local CPF, Community Patrollers and the provincial Department of Social Development held a dialogue on Aids, gender based violence and femicide, medical male circumcision and the programme termed Men Championing Change. The activity which was held at Maranatha Reformed Church on Thursday, 19 November 2020, was preceded by a fun walk.
