WINDHOEK: Windhoek mayor Agnes Kafula on Friday evening urged the government and all stakeholders to come together in an effort to curb criminal activities in the city.
Kafula said this while on patrol with City Police officers on their night rounds all over the city.
She was joined by among others former mayor Elaine Trepper, National Council Deputy Chairperson Margaret Mensah-Williams, spiritual leader Jennifer Moeti and members of the media.
The patrol started off quite, and at about 22h00 the police was called to a case of domestic violence in the Okahandja Park informal settlement, where a young woman was stabbed several times by her live-in boyfriend.
The mayor assisted by comforting the couple’s two-month-old baby girl, while paramedics were busy attending to her unconscious mother.
Kafula proposed that maybe they should reduce the time shebeens are open or put on hold the issuing of liquor licences that allow bars to operate until late hours.
