KAWEMPE division has embarked a zone-demarcation exercise to curb insecurity. The exercise involves dividing local councils into smaller zones.

“This exercise is intended to reduce the crime rate in these zones,” the deputy resident district commissioner (RDC), Edward Ssekabanja, has said. Speaking at a recent farewell party for the division’s internal security officer, Yahaya Kakooza, Ssekabanja said some zones have more than 4,000 people, who are imposible to monitor.

“A zone like Kisalosalo has more than 30,000 people. That is why crime is high in the area.”

“Each zone is supposed to have about 500 people, but some zones have more than 4,000 people,” he said.

Ssekabanja said the exercise would end this month to enable residents elect their leaders during the upcoming local council elections.

The zones to be partitioned include Kitambuza, Kazo-Angola, Kisalosalo, Kibe, Komamboga and Quarter zone.

Ssekabanja said in each zone, there would be a committee of five people to work with the RDC’s office to fight crime.
The demarcation was based on the power lines, trenches and connecting roads.
