Deputy Resident City Commissioner (RCC) for Rubaga division in Kampala, Deborah Mbabazi has tipped local leaders in Bakuli community on mechanisms of reducing crime.


Mbabazi said strengthening partnership with all security stakeholders can help reduce crime which accrues from some redundant youths.

She also observed that parents should be the first custodians of ensuring a secure community where business is uninterrupted.
 
Mbabazi was speaking during a corporate social responsibility day in which Victorious Education Services (VES) donated a range of assortments like; clothes, soap, sugar, shoes among others to the community.

VES donated items worth sh50m to community members in Bakuli with the aim of maintaining the good relationship with people. 

Mbabazi advised youths to desist from drug abuse because it will derail both their health status and future prospects.

"I also encourage all stakeholders to protect rights of children and embark on ensuring that children enjoy their rights," said Mbabazi.

Children activists believe that to have a more secure community, there is need to ensure a better foundation of children in terms of upbringing.
 
Yeri Ofwono, director at Victorious Education Services (VES) said institutions should support youths to reduce crime in communities.

Ofwono said there is need for sensitization of youths inform of out-reach programs to encourage them embrace income generating activities to reduce crime.

According to James Juma, education officer at Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), it is a good gesture to support community members because they play a pivotal role in fighting crime.

Juma urged all parents to help children be productive through embracing education.

"Let us all strengthen partnership with community leaders like Victorious Education Services has exhibited to reduce crime and restore sanity in terms of moral values," advised Juma
 
Parents speak out  
  
Peter Damulira noted that concerted effort is the way crime can be effectively fought within communities.

However, he said there is need to collaborate with the right people to effectively guide youths on moral values.
