Members of the social crime prevention office of Emanguzi SAPS have been working hard to bring awareness to the local communities in an effort to protect the most vulnerable and youngest members in our communities.
On 3 November 2017, the team, led by Capt Z S Mathenjwa and together with Const M S Mathenjwa, the traditional leader (induna), the ward councillor Lucky Tembe and the CPF Chairperson, Sbonakaliso Gumede, visited the George area.
Capt Mathenjwa took the opportunity to encourage members of the community to report crime to the police. Ward 4 councillor Lucky Tembe, CPF Chairperson Sbonakalsio Gumede and Capt Mathenjwa handed out "Mymemeza" to the women of area. These are small personal alarms that can be carried on one's person and used to sound an alarm when necessary. They have been donated to the community by the Centre for Public Service Innovation.
On the same day, in another campaign which took place in the ZamaZama area, where the rate of reported rapes is very high, Capt Mathenjwa and his team visited the community together with the ward councillor, Mr Gwala, to talk to the community about reporting crime and they handed out more "Mymemeza" to the women in the ZamaZama area.
