Ndeitunga calls for intensified law enforcement on Trans-Kalahari Corridor

Namibian Police Force Inspector-General, Sebastian Ndeitunga, has called on law enforcement stakeholders in the Southern African Development Community to increase their activity on the Trans-Kalahari Corridor (TKC).

'This should be done through intensifying our visibility on the route to maintain safety and security,' Ndeitunga said while speaking at the launch of the 10th Trans-Kalahari Corridor Management Committee (TKCMC) Joint Law Enforcement Operation on Wednesday.

The operation, taking place on the B2 road just five kilometres outside Swakopmund, will amongst others see law enforcement officers checking vehicles to ensure they adhere to road safety regulations.

The inspector-general said the enhancement of road safety on the corridor should be coupled with the enhancement of trade competitiveness by ensuring national laws are synchronised to amongst others, minimise transportation and logistics costs.

The Trans-Kalahari Corridor was jointly developed by the governments of Namibia, South Africa and Botswana in 1998 followed by a Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2003.
