Police work in Erongo region during the upcoming festive season will be made easier with the generous sponsorship from Rössing Uranium Limited. 

The company donated various pieces of equipment to the Police to the tune of N$300 000, which will be used in police initiatives aimed at keeping the Erongo region safe.

Receiving the donation on behalf of the Namibian Police was the Inspector General, Lieutenant General Sebastian Ndeitunga who expressed gratitude.

He said that he is extending his appreciation to the Town Council of Walvis Bay, Rössing Uranium Limited and to the various other organisations who donated cash or kind to the Namibian Police. This Police-Public Partnership allowed policing to be taken to the public, which is a most effective way to combat crime.   

Speaking at the occasion, Zebra Kasete, General Manager Corporate Services said that Rössing is happy to support the Namibian Police where ever it can to ensure effective policing. The work they are doing is most important and the Police should have access to the necessary tools.

“The importance of effective policing does not need overemphasis. As corporate citizens, we draw comfort in operating in a conducive environment where our assets and our employees' lives enjoy maximum protection. A crime free society is good for business.”

In terms of the value of safety, Rössing and the Namibian Police have common ground.  For Rössing Uranium the safety of its employees is critical, and in the same way the Namibian Police consider the safety of the community it serves as the most important factor.

The company views the Namibian Police as a key stakeholder in ensuring that safety becomes a way of life.

The equipment includes bullet proof vests, hand cuffs, reflective vests, memory sticks, a projector as well as 48 bicycles for patrol work.

The hand over of the donation took place at the Namibian Police Day at Walvis Bay today.
