NamPol's Deputy Inspector General, Major General Elias Mutota, has urged holidaymakers to alert police officers in their jurisdiction when they travel.

General Mutota did some legwork at the Okapuka roadblock, where he also emphasized the increase in house break-ins during the festive season.

"We make sure that all police in the regions are always prepared to ensure that the safety on our roads is guaranteed," he said. "I would also like to assure the public that the peace and security situation in this country as we speak is stable," he added.
