The police have embarked on a project that will involve the youth in fighting crime. This is due to the fact that they are the ones who are targeted to further criminal activities as a result they end up even leaving the school before time.


Six high schools in Kwadwesi pricinct such as Lungisa high school, Kwamagxaki high school, S.E.K. Mqhayi high school, Tyhilulwazi high school, E.Z. Kabane high school and Gqebera high school with two students from each school participated in the project to become junior station commander.


Students expressed themselves on how can they be engaged in fighting crime. Mr Papier from Department of Education encouraged them and said ” students should not go out of the school to avoid being involved in criminal activities.


They should be patient and teachers will do their utmost best to help them even if they experience difficulty they should try more. Mrs Du Plessies from Safety and Safety and Security made it clear that now youth that will strategize in fighting crime is needed.


This is the opportunity for Kwadwesi youth to show their potential and where they are going and they will make a difference. At the end Thethelwa Wellem of E.Z. Kabane high school was nominated as the junior station commander of Kwadwesi police station.
