Deputy Inspector General of Police in Charge of Administration, Eugene Sibote has directed all Provincial Police Commissioners to immediately stop truck drivers who are harassing their colleagues who are willing to continue on their journey under the pretext of pressing for better working conditions.
In a statement availed to 5Fm News today, Mr Sibote has reminded the truck drivers that issues of improvement of working conditions are matters that can not be concluded in a short space of time.
He has cautioned that engaging in acts of illegality is a serious breach of the law.
He says Provincial Police Commissioners must ensure all highways are patrolled and those found wanting dealt with in accordance with the law.
Mr Sibote notes that these acts of illegality also pose a great danger to the public in general, as some of the trucks being stopped are carrying highly inflammable substances.
