Mountain Rise police treats community

Truro hall played host to approximately 1600 when the Mountain Rise Police held a feeding scheme there for the community on Wednesday

What started as an idea from station commander Brigadier Boxer Pillay in 2010 has now become an annual event with police, the community policing forum (CPF) and northern businesses in the area giving back to the community in the form of a hot meal and some fun filled activities.
Biryani was served along with cool drink and hot beverages to all who attended while some SAPS members joined a live music band
All those who attended wore smiles of satisfaction on their faces after they tucked into their delicious plates of biryani saying they were very pleased by the tasty food.
“It is so rewarding to give back to our community and to see the response from the community in helping make this day successful,” said Mountain Rise spokesperson captain Gay Ebrahim.
Ebrahim said that it was important, especially during the festive season, to give back to the community and to take into account the less fortunate during the festive season.
“During the festive season we must take into account the poor because socio-economic factors affect them the most at this time of the year,” said Ebrahim.
Major General Bongi Sithole and cluster commander of the uMgungundlovu north cluster concurred saying it was essential to give back to the community to improve the partnership with the police and the community.
“We want to thank the community and the wards who work with us for being our eyes and ears out there,” said Sithole.
